It is with great regret and sadness that we announce the passing of our much-loved wife, mother, grand mother, great aunt and aunt Darlene Joan Woods (nee Curtis) after a fight with cancer on December 30, 2020. She spent her last months surrounded and cared for by her loving family at her home in Port McNicoll. Darlene was plain spoken and the most genuine of people, drew many to her and was the glue that bound our family.
She will be greatly missed by her cherished husband and love of her life Ronald Ralph Woods, her loving and much loved daughters and carers Tara Woods (Stowe Oswald) and Amanda Woods-Samuel, her devoted nephew and special son Zachary Bryant his family, her very loving and devoted son in law Kendol Samuel, her pride and joy and much loved grandchildren RJ Stowe, Isabella and Breanna Woods-Samuel and her devoted mother Beverly Curtis and(father Richard Curtis of Lefroy dcd) She was also a much daughter in law of Ralph Woods(Poppy) .dcd, and Patricia Woods who she cared for many years. A duty she never wavered from.
She was much loved by her sister Brenda Cundall (Brian) and brothers Rick (Karen) and Billy Curtis and their families.
She is also a great loss to her loving nieces Joanna Cove (Bryon), Jennifer Bishop (Andrew) and Jessica Disson Thomas (Sean) and their 10 children who shared so much of their life with her and that she greatly loved.
She is also a huge loss to her Aunt, Maid of Honour and Lifelong twisted sister Lynn Disson (nee Knicely) who with she shared all their lives, children lives and grand children’s lives and helped care for her to the end. She will be so sadly missed by her much-loved Uncle and friend Jeff Disson
She will be sorely missed by so many devoted, loving family and friends it is impossible to name them all. She made a huge impact in so many lives and was a blessing to know.
