Darlene Allen Althouse, 70, died June 17, 2018 in Twin Falls after a battle with cervical cancer.
She was born April 6, 1948 and immediately welcomed into the loving family of Frank and Duluth Allen and older sister, Stephanie. They resided in Spokane, Washington until 1953 when they moved to Malad, Idaho. Darlene graduated from Malad HS and attended vocational schools in Pocatello and Twin Falls. In 1978, she married Raymond Althouse. Their son, Ira Allen Althouse, was born July 1981. Her husband died in 1996. She had worked at various jobs, sometimes more than one at a time. Notable time was spent at Robert Stuart cafeteria and as night shift supervisor at the county jail kitchen. She worked hard, and relaxed by crocheting for family members. Darlene enjoyed keeping in touch with family/friends/classmates. She will be remembered as a congenial person - joshing with everyone she met. Darlene shared her life with her son, Ira and her beloved seven year old granddaughter, Lettie. She is also survived by her sister, Stephanie Allen of Prescott, AZ.
The family thanks Serenity Healthcare and Harrison’s Hope Hospice for their compassionate care and recognizes Serenity Funeral Chapel and Horsley Funeral Home for their assistance. Her ashes will be buried in Malad City Cemetery at a later date.
