July 21, 1965 – January 1, 2024

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Darlene on January 1, 2024, at the age of 58. She passed peacefully in her sleep at home.

She will be deeply missed by her husband Brad; children Tabatha (Jeff), and Justin (Roxanne); grandchildren, Angelina, and Emmica, Camilla; mother Joyce; and siblings, Paul (Cyndi) and Christine (Scott). She was predeceased by her father Arthur Tonn. 

Darlene was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on July 21, 1965. She grew up in Anola, and lived there the majority of her life.

Spending time with family and the outdoors was everything to Darlene. She always looked forward to visits with her children and grandchildren. Her passions included camping, biking, baking and sewing. Her favorite holiday was Halloween, with time spent decorating and greeting kids while sitting by a campfire. Many costumes were home made over the years. Darlene was an animal lover and enjoyed taking pictures of wildlife in their backyard.

Darlene will always be remembered for her kind and selfless nature. She had an enormous love for her family and her cats. Darlene’s wisdom and inner strength made her our family rock who was always there to support, love and encourage us whenever we needed.

You were so strong and you fought so hard – you can rest. You will never be forgotten and you will always hold a special place in our hearts.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making contributions in Darlene’s memory to Parkinson’s Research.

A small private memorial and interment will be held in the spring.
