Darlene E Beaumont (nee Purdy) May 18, 1939 - March 30, 2017. It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Darlene. She fought a courageous five year battle with cancer, constantly amazing everyone including her physicians. She lost her battle at the age of 77 surrounded by friends and family. Born in Wadena, SK to Ted and Carrie Purdy. She moved to Saskatoon where she met and married Merle in 1957. They cared for two foster children before starting their own family. They had three children, Pat (Kevin Vandale), Brad, and Terri (Jim Ayotte). She was predeceased by her parents (Ted and Carrie Purdy), her siblings Gloria, Butch, Carmen and Lorraine. She is survived by her husband Merle and two sisters Lynn Dehmke (Ed) and Carol Crockett. Her beautiful life will always be remembered in the lives of her husband, three children, six grandchildren, six great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and close friends. Those who knew Darlene knew the door was always open, the coffee was on, and the conversation and laughter was abundant. At Darlene's request there will be no formal service. A private celebration will be held at a later date.
