Darlene spent her last fifteen years as a devoted and loving housewife. She created a loving home, welcome to all. She was often found caring for her seven grandchildren. Before that she worked as a legal secretary in Webster. She spent a short time as a bank teller and before that helped run her uncle’s video store, “One Stop Video” in Oxford. Darlene will always be remembered for her cheerful personality, her ability to talk to all people around her, and to make everyone feel like family!
Darlene lived for her family. She loved her husband, daughters, son-in-law, and her grandchildren more than words could describe. In true Italian form, her home was open to everyone. Cooking and preparing food was a passion of hers, making everything “with love”.
Memorial calling hours are Sunday, May 23, 2021, from 2-5 p.m. at Paradis-Givner Funeral Home, 357 Main St., Oxford. A prayer service will be held at 4:45 p.m. on Sunday at the funeral home.
