Darlene May Myers: 1954-2023
Last updated 3/23/2023 at 9:20am
Darlene May Myers (Moore) passed away in Edmonds on March 9, 2023. She was the loving daughter of Arnold "Buck" and Lavina Moore and sister to Harvey, Dale, and Randy Moore.
The Moore family moved to Edmonds from Walla Walla in 1955. Mom was born in Walla Walla; however, Edmonds was her home from then on. She and family lived and worked in Edmonds via multiple small businesses owned by her mom and dad: the Edmonds Tavern and Moore's Novelty Company. She eventually opened her own business cleaning houses called Dusty's Home Cleaning Service.
After illness set her self-employment career back, she semi-retired and was a stay-at-home mom for me though the '90s. Mom always had an artistic hand, and in the 2000s and early 2010s you could see her down at the Edmonds Farmers Market selling her hand painted glass, or " peddling" her glass, as mom liked to put it.
My mom was an eternal caregiver, and while painting, parenting, and living, devoted her life to making sure her mom, Lavina, had everything she needed until she passed in 2016. They were best friends.
Mom became a grandma in 2013 to Jonathan Myers – that changed her forever. She was now known from that point on as "Grandma Pink Hair." Mom had, has, countless friends who have cared for her her entire life, and are life-long friends that will miss her deeply and forever, as I will.
The lives that my mom touched, the experiences she gave me, to my cousins and my family, will be remembered forever. Edmonds will remember her forever.
She is survived by her son, Ryan Myers; daughter-in-law, Emily; her grandson, Jonathan; life-long partner, Dale Myers; brothers Harvey and Randy Moore; nieces and nephews, Brandi, Deanna, Jeston, Jacob, and Billy Moore; and her "sparkle sisters," Marge and Mary-Anne.
I could fill the entire Edmonds Beacon with mom's life, but anybody who knew her knows how special she already is. Mom, you will, and are, deeply missed by all. Thanks for a wonderful life.
A graveside service will be held at Edmonds Memorial Cemetery at a later date. Please refer to the Beck's Tribute Center website (www.beckstributecenter.com) to leave memories and to check in for the upcoming service date.
