Death: Apr. 18, 2009
Toombs County

Mrs. Darlene Crawford Brantley went home to be with the Lord on late Saturday evening, April 18, 2009 as a result of an auto accident. The middle daughter of a military family, she was born in Norfolk, Virginia. Darlene was a member of Blackrock Baptist Church in Yulee, Florida being active in the choir, teacher of the women's Bible studies, and an adult Sunday School teacher. Besides being a prayer warrior, Darlene truly loved reading God's word and "passing it on" to others. She had been ordained deacon at a prior church in south Georgia. Until 2 years ago, she was an RN in the operating room. She was the homemaker for her family keeping a beautiful home and garden, which she opened with warm hospitality to so many. She was described as being a firecracker who stays busy as a bee. Darlene was loved by so many and a wonderful wife, mother, sister, Nana and friend to so many.

Survivors include her husband of 32 years, Paul Brantley; daughters Melissa Penrod, Dana Kicklighter and Paula Brantley Jones; grandchildren, Caitlin Kicklighter, Samantha Kicklighter, Bailey Kicklighter, John Thomas Penrod, Brantley Jones and Paul Bower; mother, Marge Crawford; and sisters, Jonelle Warkaske and Becky Stafford.
