DARLENE D. STEPHENSON

POTSDAM – Darlene D. Stephenson, 72, of 239 Barker Road, passed away on Friday afternoon, October 19, 2018 at Canton-Potsdam Hospital from complications with pneumonia and anemia. She battled lung cancer briefly and rang the survivors bell in early December 2016.

Darlene was born December 23, 1945 in Massena, the daughter of the late Wallace and Ada (Boyer) Fountain. She attended school in Potsdam. On December 22, 1962, she married Stanley E. Stephenson, Sr. He predeceased her on June 20, 2015.

Darlene was a homemaker raising her children. When her children were older, she followed her great love of animals and began working at the Potsdam Animal Shelter. She loved to be outdoors, caring for her yard and gardening. She was known to put up her own 20 cord of wood annually for her winter heat. Darlene also enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She loved to cook for them. Dinners during the holidays will be remembered with great fondness. Darlene can be most remembered most for her fierce love for her family. Her gentle spirit and grace for others is something that didn’t fade even while her health did.

Darlene is survived by her six children, Eugene and Dennis Stephenson, both of Potsdam; Deborah and John Dalland of Winthrop; Tammy Stephenson of Potsdam; Stanley Stephenson, Jr. of Knapps Station; and Kimberly Keleher of Fort Covington; 16 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

She is also survived by her sisters, Marilyn Kelley of Bombay; Judy Fitzgerald of Central Square; Gerrilyn and Vince Perry of Massena; and Jacqueline and Roger Allen of Central Square; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Darlene was predeceased by her twin sister, Marlene M. LaBaff on April 7, 2016; another sister, Renee Gibson; a step brother, Kenneth McGregor; a granddaughter, Jessica Ada Marie Stephenson; and a son-in-law, Dennis Keleher.

Friends may call Friday 12:00 - 2:00 PM at the Donaldson-Seymour Funeral Home, Potsdam where her funeral service will follow at 2:00 PM with Rev. Stephen Rocker, officiating. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery, Norwood.

Memorial contributions may be made in her memory to the Potsdam Humane Society.
