Darcy Lynn Dengel left this world for heaven on Feb. 6, 2007, as a result of a tragic aircraft accident. She passed on while doing the work that she loved. She touched many lives in the short 27 years she was with us.
Darcy was born in Lewistown on June 27, 1979. She joined her sister, Dawn where the family lived on 100 acres near Roy. Darcy attended school in Grass Range and Manhattan, graduating from Manhattan High in 1997 and from the MSU-Bozeman College of Nursing in 2001.
After graduation, Darcy worked as a RN at Sidney Health Center for one and a half years. For the past four years she worked in the Benefis Emergency Room, where she was involved in many aspects of their program: scheduling, PR and the softball team. In 2005, Darcy met one of her goals, that of becoming a flight nurse.
Darcy was very involved in Camp Francis, a camp for grieving children and was also a medical educator for Montana's DEC (Drug Endangered Children) program. She loved the challenge of being a flight nurse and of helping others.
Darcy was engaged to be married to Rob Beall, a young man who complimented her zest for life. They were to be married in October.
Darcy is survived by her fiancÚ, Rob Beall; her parents, Rich and Donna Dengel of Lewistown; her sister, Dawn Dengel, her maternal grandmother, Ardith Woodworth of Lewistown and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Darcy's life redefined the word "family."
She will be missed by the staff of Benefis, emergency services personnel, seven years of Camp Francis volunteers and campers, and anyone who ever heard her laugh.
Memorials may be made to Camp Francis, c/o Benefis Healthcare Foundation, PO Box 7008, Great Falls, MT 59406-7008, or the charity of the donor's choice.
