Darlene was born January 17, 1944 in Lemmon, SD. The daughter of Donald and Doris Albert. She grew up and attended schools in Morristown, SD and Williston, ND. She went on to beauty school in Miles City, MT. She returned to Williston, where she would marry Donald Devoe, on August 26, 1972. She was a wonderful mother to six children. She worked as a hairstylist, respiratory therapist, and as a salesclerk at Kum N Go, and finally K-mart, where she retired from in 2005. In 2000 they moved to Minot so Don could be closer to his work at the Air Force Base. Following the 2011 flood in Minot, she moved to Bismarck to be closer to family.
She enjoyed playing video games, crocheting, bowling, playing marbles, camping, fishing, and visiting with friends and family. She was an ardent evangelist, who was eager to share the gospel and her love for Jesus.
Darlene was survived by her children, Jaylene Fousha, Roundup, MT, Danielle Bunyi, Vallejo, CA, Christopher (Deb Bjorkland) Devoe, Bonney Lake, WA, Angela (Larry) Sanders, Aberdeen, SD, Michelle Lund, Bismarck, ND, and Amber (Jeremy) Rogers, Minot, ND; 16 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and her half-sisters Sharon Diley, Raymore, MO, and Linda Joslin, Sidney, MT.
