Eulogy

Darlene graduated from National College of Education in Evanston, IL. A devoted teacher, Dee spent most of her life working with children particularly the young and disadvantaged. Dee was the director of the Head Start Program in Greenburgh, NY to her last role as Head Teacher at Building Blocks Preschool in Vineland, NJ.

 

Her accomplishments included a close collaboration with a noted Manhattan Clinical Psychologist Carolyn Goodman. They worked to improve the lives of inner city children growing up in a harsh unforgiving environment. Most important to her was the nurturing of her loving family.

Dee was such a warm and welcoming person. I will always remember the embrace and welcome she gave to me when I was in NJ at my Aunts funeral. May she now be embraced and welcomed into eternal love forever.
