Darlene retired from Delaware County Government after thirty-two years of service. She worked in clerk’s office and the auditor’s office. Prior to working for Delaware County, she worked at Twoson Tool and Haag Drugstore.
She loved spending time with her family, animals, the sun, to run, walk, and ride her bicycle on The Greenway Trail which ran behind her home. Darlene had a great sense of humor. She was loved by many and to all who knew her, she was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside.
Darlene lived next door to her mother and spent much time there caring for her. She also took care of her sister-in-law, Frieda in her time of need. Darlene was a very caring woman and will be missed by many.
Surviving are her husband, Norm; her son, Brian St. John; her granddaughter, Maddy St. John; her great-grandson, Tobias, due in December; two sisters, Joan Thornburg and Linda Garrett (Larry); her twin brother, Joe Marks; Nieces, Terri Mullenburg, Sharyl Mench, Vickie Rudbeck, and Aubrey Baggett; and nephews, Bob Marks and Michael Marks.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Charles Marks and William Marks; and a nephew, William Thornburg.
Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 3, 2019, at The Meeks Mortuary and Crematory, Washington Street Chapel with Pastor Mark Garringer officiating. Entombment will follow in Beech Grove Mausoleum.
Friends may call at The Meeks Mortuary and Crematory, Washington Street Chapel from 11:00 and until 2:00 p.m. on Thursday.
