Darlene Sharon Chmelyk



It is with great sadness that the family of Darlene Sharon Chmelyk (Gibb) announce her passing on June 13, 2018. Forever remembered by her husband of 38 years, Len; daughters, Lori (Chad) Arksey and Tara Chmelyk; as well as her sister, Shannon (John) Haugen; and brother, Marv (Lorraine) Dobler; and best friend, Debbie (Vaughn) Hansen as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her infant daughter, Jill; and her parents, Ernest and Hilma Gibb.

Born on June 28, 1955 in Saskatoon, SK, Darlene spent her younger years in small town Saskatchewan. After receiving her Bachelor of Education degree from The University of Saskatchewan, she moved west where she met and married Len in 1979. She primarily taught special needs students for over 30 years with Edmonton Catholic Schools. Upon their retirement in 2011, Darlene and Len spent winters in Arizona and summers at the cabin in Saskatchewan where, together, they enjoyed everything life had to offer.

Our family would like to extend sincere thanks to Dr. David Smyth and the Leduc Community Hospital staff for their compassionate care.

A Celebration of Darlene’s life will be held on Wednesday, June 20, at 2 p.m. at the Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011 - 114 Street, Edmonton. Private interment will be held at a later date.

Memorial donations may be made to the Edmonton Humane Society or the Canadian Cancer Foundation.

In Loving Memory of
Darlene Sharon Chmelyk
(Maiden: Gibb)
