March 28, 2019
Doralene "Darlene" Derry Scott, 86, passed from this life to be with our Lord on March 16, 2019. She passed away at the Hoffman Hospice House in Bakersfield.
She was born July 24, 1932 to Willie Derry and Kaiwana Loretta Clowers Derry, in Oklahoma.
Darlene was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend to anyone that knew her. She was married to Bob Scott -- "Grandpa Bob" --until his death residing in Exeter, where they were very involved in their church.
Darlene devoted her life entirely to her family, as they were all her prized possessions, and she always put her family first.
Darlene was a true jewel who's sparkle will never fade.
She loved to read, especially romance novels. The love and concern for her family and others was the most genuine love that anyone could ask for, and if you were lucky enough to know her you, were blessed.
She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with such adoration and joy! A perfect day for her was just sitting with you, having coffee and visiting for hours telling stories. She loved the beauty in the flowers and sitting outside enjoying the day.
She will never be forgotten and will live forever in our hearts.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Bob Scott; her father, Willie "Chief" Derry; her mother, Kaiwana Loretta Clowers Derry; her son, Dwayne Hensly; her daughter, Kaiwana Cathy Carr; brother Bill Derry and sister-in-law Rosalee Derry; nephew Gary Derry; and grandson Ricky Williams.
She is survived by her son, Marcus Williams; daughter, Glenda Pitcair; grandson, Baretta Williams and wife Genifer; granddaughter Mandy Walpole and husband Harry; grandson Joshua Williams; great-grandsons, Dax Williams, Zane Williams and Weston Walpole; great-granddaughters, Sky Williams and Jayde Walpole,; brothers, Harold Derry, and Ron Boling and wife Melinda; niece Linda Derry and nephew Gary Derry; along with many more family and extended family.
Services for Darlene will be at Peters Funeral Home, 844 E. Lerdo Hwy., Shafter on Monday, April 8, at 11 a.m. Interment to follow at Shafter Cemetery.
The family would like to especially thank Hoffman Hospice, Tom and Beth Hoffman, and all the amazing staff who was so caring and trustworthy, making this a dignified and loving final journey.
