Darlene J. Smith


Darlene J. Smith
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear aunt, Darlene Josephine Smith at the age of 90. Born in Upper Wicklow, NB, she was the daughter of the late Wendell and Myrtle (Wyman) Smith. She was predeceased by her only sister, Winnifred (Harley) Kilcollins.

After completing a grade 8 education in a small, rural school in Upper Wicklow, she worked several years as a housekeeper for families in the community. At the age of 22, she attended a hair stylist school in Bangor, Maine and after graduation, she became an instructor at the school for several years. Moving back to Wicklow, she set up her own beauty salon in Florenceville, NB and eventually moved her business back to Wicklow, where she continued as a hairdresser until retirement at the age of 65. Darlene was a faithful member of the Wicklow Baptist Church.

She leaves to mourn her nephew, Calvin (Brenda) Kilcollins of Hantsport, NS; Niece, Cathy (Raymond L.) Drost of Wicklow, NB; Great Nieces, Sara Kilcollins of Ottawa, ON and Melissa (Mitch) Baker of Clairmont, AB; Great Nephews, Adam (Kristi) Kilcollins of Oceanside, CA and Carl (Maryse) Drost of Oromocto, NB; as well as many cherished great great nieces and nephews.

Our family wish to thank the staff of Carleton Place in Hartland and Riverside Court in Woodstock as well as Doctors and staff at Upper River Valley Hospital for their care and compassion these past few months as our Aunt's health declined.

A graveside committal service will be held in The Pomphrey Cemetery, Upper Wicklow, at a later date. Donations can be made to The Pomphrey Cemetery, Wicklow Baptist Church or to a memorial of the donor's choice. L.R. Giberson Funeral Directors- Florenceville-Bristol, NB have been entrusted with the arrangements. (506)392-1115
