Darla E. “DarDar” Styer
February 12, 1963 ‒ May 04, 2015
Formerly of Mount Gilead, Ohio
Darla E. “DarDar” Styer, age 52, of Columbus and formerly of Mount Gilead, passed away Monday morning, May 4, 2015, at The James Cancer Hospital in Columbus.
On February 12, 1963, Darla was born in Mount Gilead, the daughter of the late Roy and Phyllis (George) Styer. She graduated from Mount Gilead High School in the Class of 1981. She furthered her education by completing two years at Marion Technical College.
For many years, Darla was employed by Aetna as a claims supervisor. She then took a position with Cheryl’s as a sales consultant in their popcorn division. Darla then went back into insurance as a customer consultant for Zurich then Progressive Medical. While at Progressive Medical, she was also a receptionist for IHA Urgent Care.
Darla enjoyed getting lost in a good book. She also liked attending NASCAR races, Cincinnati Bengals, and Ohio State football games. She loved taking care of flowers and always found a way to make them big and beautiful. Maybe it was the way she talked to them?
Family meant the world to Darla. She never had children of her own, but she treated her niece, Heather, and nephew, Michael, like her own kids. Her family did many fun things through the years, and especially enjoyed getting together and canning food.
Darla always did anything she could to help people. She will be remembered as a happy, loving, soft spoken woman.
She will be dearly missed by her sister, Cathy (Earl) Kimbleton of Mount Gilead; her niece, Heather (Matt) Pettigrew and their son, Matthew, of Mount Gilead; her nephew, Michael (fiancée Amber Berry) Hoffman and their children: Lane, Shelby, and Bryce, all of Mount Gilead; a close friend, Mark Demlow of Columbus; and numerous extended family members and friends.
Darla’s family will greet friends from 5 – 8 p.m. on Friday, May 8, 2015, at the Snyder Funeral Home, Craven Chapel, 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead. Services celebrating her life will be held there at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 9, 2015, with Ben Granger officiating. Burial will follow in Bryn Zion Cemetery.
Memorial contributions, if desired, may be made to the American Cancer Society or the American Diabetes Association.
