Darci M. Homan
February 2, 1965 – June 26, 2019
Darci Michelle Homan was born on February 2, 1965 in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the fifth of six children born to Jim and Loene Herman. Darci attended grade school in Modale, Iowa and graduated in 1983 from West Harrison High School in Mondamin, Iowa.
During the two years Darci attended the University of Iowa, she changed her major more than once—a reflection of her many interests. She then decided to attend college at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, to study marine biology. At Christmas that year, she returned home to family and friends. She worked in Omaha for a company hiring temporary positions and was soon offered full-time work. She eventually earned her degree in Criminal Justice from Bellevue College after she was married. Darci worked at Lozier Corporation and FSA over the years. Most recently, she was employed at D & W Fine Pack in Fort Calhoun, as a production scheduler.
Darci’s primary interest was her family. She loved soccer as much as her husband and daughters. She had never had the opportunity to play soccer because it had not been offered at her school when she was growing up, but she did play softball and basketball. She enjoyed being active and involved in the sports lives of her daughters and was a vocal supporter of them and their teammates. Over the years, she drove many miles to sporting events (probably breaking the speed limit on the way).
Darci leaves behind her loving husband, Jim; their daughters, Alex and Kenzie; her birth family; her in-laws; other relatives and a host of friends. She is greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Darci’s favorite quote was, “Live each day with a grateful heart.” Her favorite place on earth was the town of Assisi in Italy and St. Francis, her favorite saint.
Until the Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma besieged her body, Darci was fully engaged in life. She was a boisterous, joyful and fun-loving person with a great sense of humor.
We will always be grateful God shared Darci with us for 54 years!
