Darlene was remarried to Elmer Jay Shoop. Darlene and Jay adopted a baby, Jay Lenn Shoop. After Elmer’s passing, she remarried again to Glen Shoop and resided in Idaho. They returned to Nebraska and purchased their home in Crawford where they lived until Glen’s passing and Darlene’s need for nursing care made the Villa necessary.
