Darci had aspirations to continue her education and moved to Detroit Lakes and attended Minnesota State Technical College. That is where she completed the LPN program and went on to achieve her RN. Darci loved to read so studying for her was natural. Darci loved being a mother. She also had many personal attributes which made her such a great person to be around.  She was kind, understanding, wise and a very good listener. She enjoyed spending her time relaxing at the lake, reading, camping, listening to music, shopping and spending time with her friends and family.  She had many friends and was big believer in trust and loyalty.  Although her life may seem to be too short, she had helped and touched so many lives in many different ways.
