She was born November 28, 1930, in Hazlehurst, MS and had lived for many years in Jackson, MS with the love of her life, Donald “Andy” Anderson. During her career she worked as a full charge bookkeeper and was known for her great attention to detail.
Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also loved shopping, playing Bingo, and traveling with Andy to Branson and the Smoky Mountains. Darline never met a stranger and always made friends everywhere she went. She leaves her family with many loving memories and an amazing chocolate pie recipe.

Malone of Jackson, MS; her grandchildren, Melanie Lane Beyer (Derek), Stacey Malone Voss (Shane), Powers Brandon Lane, Robert Ray Malone (Susan); and 9 great-grandchildren.
Special thanks to caregivers Shirley Hall, Johnnie Harris, Rosie Jackson, Heather Scott and Mary Parker for their loving and gentle care.
