    Our condolences to Darleen’s family. She worked with us on starting in 2008 at APTECH and then at AVH Engineering. She was a fantastic friend to all of us and contributed to our small team like a family member of a family business. She will be missed and very fondly remembered.

    My deep and sincere condolences to Darleen’s family and friends. I had the pleasure of having Darleen in one of my classes at Okanagan College. Darleen was an exceptional student, and contributed much to our learning environment with her many experiences. She was curious, kind and a passionate learner. We shared many conversations about rocks; a passion we both shared. Darleen was very inspiring to many of her classmates and instructors. She will not be soon forgotten. Much love and light to you Darleen. I am glad I got to share a small part of your journey.
