Oh Darlene. Worked with her at Mayo Clinic. She was the most giving person. Loved her stories and bringing joy to the day with her great sense of humor. The world will be a sadder place without her. My sympathies to her family and friends. I am very sad to hear this.
Rest In Peace! You have been so brave in difficult times! Always remember “Call Diane” !! 🙏🏾♥️
I remember working with her at Mayo. She was such a funny person. Jean Gore
