Letha Darlene Salguero, age 70, of Hatfield, AR died Monday, February 24, 2020 at her home. She was born on Wednesday, January 11, 1950 to Melvin Jessie and Alta Madlyn Turner Grayham in Vallejo, California.
Darlene was a Godly woman who attended the Zafra and Lenox Church of Christ for many years. By all accounts, Darlene was a firecracker with a spice for life. She was feisty, but also incredibly loving and protective. She did cross country truck driving for many years. Darlene enjoyed quilting, sewing, crocheting, gardening, and was always up for experiencing new places or embarking on a new adventure. She liked old rock, especially Janis Joplin, as well as classic country and Christian music. Darlene loved participating in Bible School and the Church Women’s Retreat and was active in the Boy Scouts for over ten years. Above all, Darlene loved her family and was extraordinarily proud of her kids and grandchildren. Darlene was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, and friend and will be missed by all who knew her.
She is preceded in death by her parents; and one grandson, Richard Benish.
