Darlyn graduated from Jesup High School in 1945 and continued her education at Iowa State Teachers College and Upper Iowa University. Her first teaching job was in a one-room school house and she later taught in town schools at Brandon and Onslow. After having children, she became a home-maker.

One of her greatest joys was traveling with Jerry to visit her children and grandchildren and being able to support their many accomplishments.
