Born Darlene Smith of Scottish-English Mormon Pioneer heritage. (My great Grandfather and my great-great Grandfather and Grandmother came with the Martin Handcart Co. to Utah in 1856.) Born and raised
in Alpine and American Fork, Utah. In my high school yearbook they predicted I would be the mother of 5 and that I had aspirations to be a lady of leisure. ( How does that work?)
As I look back on how my life unfolded, I certainly don't think I have been a lady of leisure. I did however have 5 wonderful children and then raised 8 more from the marriage to my second husband. I have been a mother to 13, a grandmother to 43, and now have 24 great grandchildren.
I have served in the church in most all organizations and have been a life long visiting teacher. I worked in the St. George Temple as an ordinance worker.
I have always been interested in Family History and have collected and preserved many of my ancestor's personal histories. I have mostly spent time researching family lines in Scotland and England.
My husband died in 2010 and I moved from St. George to Salt Lake City to be closer to my children.
My husband poor health had kept us from serving a mission, but now find that I am able to do so.
What a blessing!
I am so happy and excited to see what the Lord has in store for me in this next chapter of my life.
