AULANDER, NC – Darlene Farmer Williams, age 62, of the Millennium Township, passed away on Monday, November 7, 2022 at her home.

Darlene was born in Hertford County, North Carolina on July 27, 1960, a daughter of the late Ray Anderson Farmer and Evelyn Cecil Farmer. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She was a talented floral designer and always created amazing arrangements for any occasion. She loved to spend time at the beach with her toes in the sand. Darlene enjoyed riding around on the golf cart, listening to George Strait, taking care of her grandchildren, which affectionately called her Nana, and hanging out with her friends. Better known as a porch monkey, she loved that time sitting and watching the hummingbirds and watching her grandbabies play. Darlene was a dear friend to many and will be deeply missed by her family and friends.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, SGM Johnnie Ray Farmer.

Left to cherish Darlene’s memory are her beloved husband, Thomas, two sons, Thom Williams and wife Shannon, Jon Williams and wife Chrystal; six precious grandchildren, Mason Williams, Levi Williams, Luke Williams, Rhett Williams, Brayden Harper, and Morgan Williams; her sister, Evelyn Ann Rawls and husband Ray, brother, Danny Farmer and wife Judy, sister-in-law, Paula Farmer along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family and friends.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, from 7:00 pm until 8:30 pm at Garrett-Sykes Funeral Service, Ahoskie, NC, and other times at the home.

A celebration of life funeral service will be held on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, at 11:00 am at the Garrett-Sykes Funeral Service – Ahoskie Chapel, Ahoskie, NC, with Pastor Greg Hurdle officiating. Burial will follow at Job Cemetery, Aulander, NC.

Thomas and family I’m in shock about Darlene , It’s so hard to imagine losing a friend , we all knew and shared time growing up together in church and seeing each other when we are out going about our lives . Thomas I grew up with you and we shared so much , then we all got married and had our family and grandchildren but the one thing that never change was when we met , we always had kind words and shared a smile . The last time I saw you and Darlene was at the Andy’s restaurant in ahoskie. We each took time to share a kind smile and hello . Over the years we never forgot our friends . I want you to know it was a great pleasure to have known Darlene and your family members ! I heart breaks for you all ! Please accept my prayers and my deepest condolences ! May God give you all peace and comfort in knowing she’s at peace with God . Know you all hold a special place in my heart ❤️ May God be with you all !

Thomas, Evelyn, Danny and your families I was saddened to hear of Darlene’s passing. She was a wonderful lady. Darlene was a member of the Millennium PH Church bible quiz team when I was the team coach. We had a lot of fun in class and during competition. She was one of several very special students from the church youth group. I loved them all and was honored to serve with them. Darlene will be missed. Mary Ann and I have you all in our thoughts and prayers.
