Darlene was an outgoing and friendly personality. She was a strong independent woman who was greatly admired for her willingness to take on great challenges. She raised 4 children as a single mother. She started a medical billing practice and built it from a home office into a successful and fairly large business called Management Plus. She loved music, live theater, art and travel.
