Our family was extremely saddened by the sudden loss of our beloved wife, mother and grandmother; Darlene Bechtold. During the past weeks we were showered with love and support from our community. Many of you shared in our grief and helped us begin to heal with your kind deeds and words.
Darlene loved this community and we know she was loved by many people as well. She loved children and had a special place in her heart for her day care families and her “Kennedy Kids.” We pray you all find comfort in knowing she is watching over you still.
Her wake and funeral were beautiful and touching; thank you to all who attended. A special thank you is extended to Fr. Jerome, Fr. Nick and the entire Church of St. Joseph.
We are grateful to everyone who gave gifts of food, memorials, kind words, memories and prayers. We cannot even begin to individually thank everyone who played a role in her life or helped us in any way. We hope this message reaches each of you and know you are appreciated and loved. We are fortunate to be part of this caring community. Thank you and God bless each of you.
