Darlene Barlow Lindley, 92, went to join her husband of 71 years, Donald Glenn Lindley in Heaven on April 09, 2020 in. She was born on May 17, 1927 in Haviland, Kansas to parents, Marion A. and Jessie Barlow and was one of seven children. Darlene was raised in Lawrence, Kansas and attended the University of Kansas.

Darlene volunteered in the Kerrville ISD school reading program. She volunteered at the public library delivering books to homebound residents of Kerrville. She was an avid crafter and quilt maker. She was a member of the First United Methodist Church.
