Darlene was a very caring, giving lady who always put others before herself. She was the family matriarch and loved spending time with her family. She made many friends over her lifetime, including the friendship of the 1120 Girls for over 50 years. She also enjoyed visiting with friends and trips to the casino.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Orville and Opal Bourn; her husband, Lyle Bellis; daughter, Sherry Keller; sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; and her beloved little Trixie.
I am so saddened to read about this happening. Twice this last week I had thought about stopping by to visit her and didn't now wishing I would have. She will be missed very much. Darlene cherished her family more than can possibly be measured and I'm sure she they felt the same about her. She had a heart of gold that's for sure.. When I would visit with her I hated to leave. I loved her. My thoughts are with the family and know how sadly broken they must feel inside. Judy Neal
