Sad to hear of her passing. We dated in 1966 and 1967 when I was stationed at Amarillo Airforce Base before her second marriage to Mr. Boykin. She was always very nice to me. She helped me mentally adjust to being away from my family and friends in Arizona. I have nothing but good memories from her. May God bless her and her family.
Bryan I remember your mom as such a sweet person when I taught you cello in elementary school. My blessings to your family
Chuck, Bryan, Kim – and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Darlene was always bubbly and such fun!
We know she will be so missed! Bless each of you as you go through the loss of your sweet wife Chuck and mom – Bryan and Kim. May God watch over each of you – much love, Carol and Mike Tiernan
So very sorry for the entire family. So many wonderful memories from the eary IBM days working with Chuck. She was always so much fun. We all got together back then at each other’s houses and elsewhere on most weekends. She will be greatly missed.
