Darla Kay Elmberg

April 23, 1961 ~ April 15, 2022 (age 60)


Darla Kay Elmberg, age 60, of Walker, began her spiritual journey on Friday, April 15, 2022 at her home in Onigum.  She was born on April 23, 1961 in Minneapolis, the daughter of Raymond and Frances (Reed) Elmberg. 

Darla was a very happy person who loved her kids, grandkids and entire family dearly.  She enjoyed camping, bonfires, swimming, music, arts and crafts, dogs, cats, other animals and watching the Minnesota Vikings.  It was very seldom that you would catch Darla without a hat on.   Whether it was a baseball, cowboy, or any hat she could find, she was always stylish.  When it came to grandkids, Darla was a fun grandma who would always have some sort of trinket or toys for them.  She was a bright soul who was full of love, spunk and happiness.  Darla always had a way of showing her presence at any type of gathering, “Hey Everybody”!!  Her family and friends will always remember Darla being funny, goofy and a person who could laugh at anything for hours.  “Loony”, as she would often call herself.  She will be missed by all her family and friends.

The family that Darla joins again are her son; James and granddaughter; Zendayh, her parents; Ray and Frances, sister; Sherry, brother; Ray, aunts; Shirley and Lucille, one nephew; Ladell and many aunts, uncles and other relatives.

Those she leaves behind to cherish her memory are her daughter; Starr Elmberg, sisters; Rhonda Lindamood, Wendy Elmberg, and Jackie Dares, brothers; Kerry and Dean Elmberg, five grandchildren and other relatives and friends.
