Darle Julia Ramsey

Darle Julia Pearson was born to Edwin and Ethel Pearson at their farm home in rural Greeley on June 23, 1918. Her family faithfully attended and actively participated in the Eaton Evangelical Free Church. Darle graduated as valedictorian of her class from Greeley Central High School then pursued her bachelor's degree in Secondary Education at the Colorado State College of Education (UNC). She served as James Michener's research assistant for his first book then graduated in 1939. After graduation Darle, wearing a wedding gown borrowed from Edith Wiebking (for whom Wiebking Hall was named) and sporting the traditional six pence given to her by the mayor of Greeley, married her dashing young naval officer at Sabin Hall.

Darle enjoyed life to the full. Her varied interests included floral design, gardening, reading, needle crafts, travel, and music. She enjoyed people and often expressed that strangers were simply friends she had not yet met. Her great sense of humor, active listening skills, and compassionate heart endeared her to many people. Darle's love of literature was coupled with a dramatic flair for storytelling that captivated audiences from ages three to eighty-three.

In spite of many accomplishments and accolades, the direction of her life changed when as a young adult she realized how much God loved her. She understood and accepted that Jesus Christ died for her personally. Not content to be a "Sunday only" Christian, Darle wanted her daily life to reveal her deep love for her personal Savior, Jesus Christ. This intense desire to serve her Creator was evidenced by her faithful study of the Bible, her commitment to prayer, and her sharing of the encouraging news that God loves us enough to forgive us and invite us to spend eternity in heaven with Him. Her life brought hope, comfort, and loving acceptance to all she knew. Darle Pearson Ramsey is loved by her three children and their spouses, her twelve grandchildren, and twenty-four great grandchildren.

As her children, we gratefully acknowledge a Mother who consistently lived a life to honor her precious Savior.

Visitation will be held on Monday, July 26th from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm with funeral services beginning at 3:00 pm at the Littleton Baptist Church. Private family graveside services will be held at Fort Logan National Cemetery.
