    I offer my heartfelt condolences to all who now miss Darlis. I remember her so well from her several positions at Creighton. No matter what office she supported she made Creighton a warm and caring place because of the tone she set and the way she treated everyone she encountered. She truly exemplified what it means to be a person for others. I remembered her at Mass today. –Fr. Jim Clifton, SJ

    Dear Tim, Kalee, Lilian and Dar’s extended family and friends, I had so much fun growing up with Dar and as young adults. I am so blessed to have had her in my life. Even though we have been separated by miles and time, I will always hold her close to my heart. I am so so sorry for your loss.

    I met Darlis through our mutual connection in EWI. She was outgoing, fun-loving, and dedicated to her beliefs. I had lost touch with her as EWI in my part of the country dissolved. I was shocked, but ever so grateful, that someone let me know of her passing. A good friend is sadly missed!

  • Shelly Quail Posted September 16, 2020 7:07 pm

    Tim and family you will be in my prayers that the Lord will give you comfort through this difficult time.

    Wow…I miss you so much already. I’m so sorry Tim, Kalee (Ian) & Lillian. My heart is broken.

  • Dianne Luckett Posted September 17, 2020 2:22 pm

    What wonderful memories we who knew and served with Dar over the years in EWI have. Gracious and kind, but always honest and kept us on the right track. Her laughter was contagious and her love for others was evident. None more so than of her family. She spoke often of her love for her family and how very much they meant to her. My sincere condolences and prayers for you all.

    Sadden to hear of Darlis’ passing. Go be with God young lady and spread your wings of joy, peace and love over all who remain. Condolences to Tim and family.

    To Dar’s Family, I met Dar while working for WoodmenLife. Dar worked in the same department as my sister, Patti Wills and I had a lot of interaction with her. What I can say about Dar, is she was always very helpful and compassionate towards people. When Dar was in charge of setting up a Company Event, she especially wanted to make sure everyone enjoyed it, whatever it was. She literally went around and asked everyone, how is everything? Well Dar, we did enjoy it, but more importantly we enjoyed you! A wonderful person gone too soon. My sincere condolences to Dar’s entire family, she will be so missed.

  • Jill Gaffney Posted September 18, 2020 8:51 am

    Darlis was a friend to all who knew her in EWI. Serving along side her was such an honor. She inspired me through her unconditional love and passion for serving our organization. She loved her family deeply. My condolences to Tim, Kalee,, Lillian and Ian. I will miss Darlis so much but look forward to her big hug and infectious laugh when we meet again in the garden of heaven.

    To my dear friend, Lilly and her family.
    My heart goes out to all of you.
    Darlis was always so kind to me whenever I came to visit. There was a never a dull moment when she was around. I remember her giving us kids money and told us to go have some fun. I wish I could be there with Lily and her family right now, and it breaks my heart that I live so far away.
    Darlis will live on in our memories!

    My sincerest condolences to Lilly and family. Your mom was so kind and warm the time the two of you flew down here for Ms. Dar’s conference. I regret not being able to visit while she was still with us, however I’m thankful that I was able to meet her great character at least once. She will be sorely missed.

  • Allen Wallen Posted September 20, 2020 8:37 pm
