Darlene will be fondly remembered for her quick smile and bubbly laughter, she was hard working and ever encouraging, especially to those young people who worked with her at Bob Ronnie’s Catering for many years. She was also famous for her cake decorating skills and did many cakes for many people in the community, nicknamed “The Cake Lady”. Mom was an avid gardener and judged 4-H garden club. She was a very long time member of the Concord Ladies Group and Church of the Open Bible, and very involved with 4-H and the Alberta Limousin Association. She will be sadly missed by her family and many, many others in the community.
