   Darlene Faye Wallenburg was born September 20, 1947, at Orange City, Iowa to John and Tillie (Dragstra) Wallenburg. She was raised in Rock Valley, graduating from Rock Valley Christian School and Western Christian High School. She continued her education at Dordt College and went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Elementary Education. She began teaching at Sanborn Christian School and remained there for her entire career. After retirement she moved to Hull and continued to gain a whole new group of friends.


   Dar touched many lives by her loving attitude and humble spirit. She was very generous with her time and possessions. She loved and cherished her nieces, nephews, and their children as her own. She acknowledged their birthdays and holidays with cards and gifts. This past Monday morning, December 21, 2020, God gently received her into heaven.


   Those left to cherish her memory are her sisters, Joyce (Jim) Burggraaf, Ev Breuer, Jean (Ruben) Fick, and Lori (Roger) Van Maanen; 12 nieces and nephews; and 36 great nieces and nephews.


   She joined her parents in Heaven, as well as a sister, Mary Van Zee; and brothers-in-law, Ervin Breuer, Joe Bechler, and Richard Van Zee.

I was in Miss Wallenburgs first class at Sanborn Christian. Second grade, 1968. She still sent me Christmas cards in her beautiful handwriting. She and my mom, Lois Postma, had an on-going Scrabble game for years. I have many fond memories of this lovely lady.

Our sympathy to the family and friends of Darlene. All of our kids had her as a teacher and I was blessed to teach with her and did some long term subbing for her when she took her cancer treatment. We worked well together and our kids learned a lot from her. Cursive penmanship was very important for her to teach her students.
