Mom/Grandma you will be dearly missed and our Hearts are broken.
Irene was born February 7th, 1940, to Leah and Millard Brown. She married Dick Darling on April 14th, 1955, and they spent the rest of their lives together. Soon after they were married their first son, Dickie (Richard) Darling Jr. was born and 10 years later their second son, Jack Darling was born. Irene and Dick spent most of their lives working together and enjoying family time. She loved to crochet, collect cookie jars, attend car shows, camping and fishing with the family, and always made us laugh with her silly comments. There was no hiding anything from Grandma. We Love you Mom/Grandma!!
