Darcy’s passions included being a mom and attending her children’s school and life events.  Her boys and her family were the center of her being.  All holidays and special occasions reflected her incomparable spirit and her joyous personality.  The optimism she showed toward life, experiences, and work was an example to all who knew her.  Relationships and friendships energized her, helped to keep her hopeful and provided great joy in her life.

She is survived by her husband, Jeff, and two sons, Tanner and Jake.  She is also survived by one sister, Pam Blaine (Chad) and her mother, Joyce Rogers.  Darcy was preceded in death by her father, Gene French.
