Darla is survived by her children, Leah Draper, Peru, Karen McCoy, Indianapolis, Randy Burris and wife Virna, Ottawa Hills, Ohio, Loriann Harmon and husband Neal, Burlington; eight grandchildren, Lacey Alberson, Amber Williams, Lindsay Ousley and husband Ben, Cameron Burris, Lee Shelley, Brandi Harmon, Danielle Amsbury and Conner Harmon; great-grandchildren, Madison Schmitt-Arnett, Troy Williams, Myah Powell, Makhi Powell, Sydney Ousley, Clayton Ousley, Wyatt Ousley and Alexis Shelley; sisters, Dawn Lewis, Vickie Paul, Sue Horn, Millie Steinhart and Evelyn Keller; brothers, John Delles, George Delles Jr.; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, George; two grandsons, Troy Aaron and James Fowler; two sisters; and one brother.

Funeral services will be at 1 p.m. Friday at First Congregational UCC, 505 W. Mulberry St., with Pastor Jon Tice officiating. Entombment will follow in Sunset Memory Gardens Mausoleum. The family will receive friends at the church from 10:30 a.m. until service time Friday.
