She enjoyed traveling with friends throughout the United States.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Izetta Darrington, sisters Joyce Glesmann and Vera Beamer, and brother Marvin Darrington. She is survived by her brother Byron Darrington and his wife Janis, along with six nephews and their families.
