Darlene retired as the Seneca High School Cafeteria Manager in May of 2005. She spent her retirement baking, cleaning houses, and helping others with projects, large and small.
Darlene was a friend to many, she didn’t know a stranger, and was always willing to lend a helping hand. She especially loved animals and became a “cat lady” in her retirement. Her love for baking was enjoyed by many and will be greatly missed.
