In 2003, they made their way to Pampa. While in Pampa, Darla became involved in Hobart Baptist Church. She taught Sunday School and also served as the director of the Adult Sunday School department. 

Darla was an encourager to so many she encountered by writing poems and speaking kind words. She loved to decorate for every holiday and event. Darla enjoyed painting, sewing, and fishing. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandma, and friend.
