Bolton

As we travel through our days here on Earth, we occasionally will meet a person who stands out and shines with a warmth and sense of caring that sets them apart from most others. Darlene Autery was such a person. Regrettably, Darlene passed away early on the morning of July 2 after a 10-month fight with lymphoma. She died in the care of friends, surrounded by the people who were closest to her. Darlene was a kind, peaceful, honest, unassuming soul and a wonderful friend to many. She will be greatly missed.

Born in California and raised in Massachusetts, Darlene eventually settled in Bolton, Vt., put down roots, and raised her son, Gabe, whom she loved and cared about dearly. Darlene is also survived by her loving older brothers Damian, David and Dwayne; sisters-in-law Cauleen and Pam; niece Molly, and nephews Devin and Drake; as well as her partner, Steve, and his children Evan, Sarah and Jessica; Darlene’s half-siblings Mary, Katie and Paul; and step-brother Fred (DeVries).

A celebration of Darlene’s life and a mourning for her death will be held at Tony and Loree’s house on 1519 Notch Rd., Bolton (tel. 434-5080) on Sunday, July 15, from 4 until 8 p.m., maybe later. Please bring a dish and memories to share, your own lawn chair and drink, a smile on your face, a tear in your eye, and a song in your heart. Live music will be provided by Rick & the LUV and other friends, because, as all who knew her are aware, Darlene Rocks!

“To live is to fly. Both low and high. So shake the dust off of your wings. And the tears out of your eyes.” — Townes Van Zandt
