Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother

Passed away peacefully on November 10, 2022. Survived by children, Cindy (Jerome) Baker, Jody (Joseph) Prettner, Mark Cochran, Martin Cochran; 15 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild on the way. She was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Olive Meyer; son, Matthew Cochran; granddaughter, Justine Parks; daughter-in-law, Cheryl Cochran; brothers, Don, Dick, Bob and Dennis Meyer. Darlene was spunky and sassy, strong and independent. She overcame many difficulties early in her life, and let those challenges shape her into a kind and generous soul. She gave to pretty much any organization that would ask for donations, and was always scouring garage sales to buy winter coats to donate to kids who had none. She added a special touch by knitting hats and mittens for those kids, as well.
