Darla lived her life to the fullest and lived up to her nicknames of “Crazy Grandma” and “Diva.” She loved reading, watching her shows, and enjoyed an occasional whiskey sour at 3 a.m. with her grandson. Darla enjoyed doing puzzles and playing games with anyone who wanted to play. She loved the Cleveland Indians and her Sundays were devoted to the Cleveland Browns. Darla adored anything her grandchildren loved and enjoyed spending as much time as possible with them. All of her grandchildren knew they could call her at any time, day or night, and she would answer their call, no questions asked.
