A gifted student, she received her degree from Fairmont College (later University of Wichita) in 1925, at the remarkable age of 19. While there, she was a charter member of the Zeta Chapter of Omega Upsilon, National Honorary Expression Sorority, and was President of the chapter for 2 terms. She then took a position as Instructor in English at the Shawnee, OK High School, where she endeared herself by her many lovable qualities and intellectual attainments. Her marriage, in 1927 to Sturgis Williams Darling, was the culmination of a romance, which began when both were students at Kingfisher College, where she spent her freshman year majoring in Latin and English. His career with Texaco took them to many locations throughout the United States. Retirement brought their return to Oklahoma, where they built their home, named "StoneWooD," on Lake Tenkiller. Ever gracious as well as learned, Mrs. Darling was a member of P.E.O., D.A.R., Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims and Colonial Dames-XVII Century of which she served as Oklahoma State President. Her life was rich with family and friends and her legacy will transcend the generations. Mrs. Darling was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years; brothers, Hugh and Doane Farr; sister, Helen Farr Flanary and her son, Doane Farr Darling. Surviving are her sons, Sturgis Williams Darling (Marilynn), Laguna Niguel, CA and Forrester Bushnell Darling (Patricia), Mercer Island, WA; Doane's widow, Eugenia Darling; and many nieces and nephews.
