WOOLFORD DarleenPosted: December 6th, 2012
Born December 23rd, 1938 in Cardston, Alberta
Following a brave battle with cancer, Darleen passed away peacefully at Lee Crest Manor on December 1st, 2012 with her boys at her side.
Darleen was a natural mother to 5 Kunz boys: Marty (Lucille), Clayton, Todd (Francis), Darren (Cindy), & Doran (Darla), and an adopted mother to Charlie (Hazel) Woolford and Wendy (Butch) Egeland. She is also survived by her twin sister Colleen Kunz. Darleen was predeceased by her husband, Hank (Henry) Woolford and brother Frank Benton. Her motherly love was not limited to direct family as she mothered all those who she met, from infants to the most elderly. Darleen will be remembered as a patient, loving, caring and gentle mentor to all whom had the pleasure of enjoying life with her. Among her numerous accomplishments include: a Life Member of the Royal Purple of Canada, gardening awards, Air Canada Heart of Gold Award, Cardston Citizen of the Year (1996), Alberta Centennial Medal (2005), and the Canadian Diamond Jubilee Medal (2012). Her service to community is only surpassed by the size of her heart and compassion for her fellow man.
A Celebration of her amazing life will be held at the South Hill Chapel, Cardston, Alberta on Thursday, December 6th, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the Good Samaritan Society of Cardston in recognition of the wonderful care and dedicated compassion they bestowed upon Darleen in her final months.
