Mary “Darlene” Mobley, mother of Jacksonville Campus Director Alecia Webb, died Saturday, Dec. 7, in Topeka, Kansas. She was 88.
Darlene married Scott E. Mobley on June 10, 1953 in Hutchinson, Kansas. He preceded her in death in 2017, as did her parents and two siblings, Wanda Hoeferkamp and Kenneth Spain.
Darlene is survived by four children: daughter and son-in-law Cheryl and Bill Tallent; daughter and son-in-law Alecia and Don Webb; daughter and son-in-law Monica and Bryan Johnson; and son and daughter-in-law Curt and Vicky Mobley; as well as 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Darlene enjoyed refurbishing antique furniture, counted cross-stitch, crossword and jigsaw puzzles, board games, cards and watching her “stories” on television. Darlene will always be remembered for her sense of humor and for the love and support she gave to her husband and family. Funeral services will be 11 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 14, at Parker-Price Funeral Home in Topeka, Kansas. Interment will follow at Mount Hope Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Alecia and her family during this time.
