Darlene worked for multiple police departments throughout the 70s in the communications division as a dispatcher. In 1980, she began working for the Travis County Sheriff's Office and eventually became an Evidence Property Technician. Darlene then chose to be a full-time mother for several years and stayed at home to take care of her 3 boys. When they were old enough, she became a substitute teacher and then secretary at Jarrell ISD until 2010. In her spare time, she enjoyed baking for friends and family, reading books, solving word search puzzles, and deepening her faith.
