Woolford, Darleen

Following a brave battle with cancer, Darleen Francis Woolford (Kunz, Brenton) passed away peacefully at Lee Crest Manor on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, with her boys at her side. She was born Dec. 23, 1938 in Cardston.
Darleen was a natural mother to five Kunz boys: Marty (Lucille), Clayton, Todd (Francis), Darren (Cindy) and Doran (Darla), and an adopted mother to Charlie (Hazel) Woolford and Wendy (Butch) Egeland. Darleen is also survived by her twin sister Colleen Kunz.
Darleen was predeceased by her husband, Hank (Henry) Woolford and brother Frank Benton.
Darleen’s 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 Darleen’s amazing life will be held at the South Hill Chapel, Cardston, on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012, at 1 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.
