Darlene Elda Woods (Booth)


It is with a profound sense of sadness that we announce the death of Darlene Elda Woods (Booth). After a very brief but courageously fought battle with lung cancer on December 30, 2013. Surrounded by her daughters and son in law.

Darlene will be missed terribly by her partner Zivan (Chico) Zuckovic, daughters Karen (Keith McIsaac), Dawn Galbraith and her 4 grandchildren Matthew, Meghan, Emily and Hunter. Brother Hugh (Cheryl Booth) , sister Mary (Stanley Frazier), sister in law Crystle Booth as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Darlene was predeceased by her parents Ken and Beth Booth and her brother Tom Booth.

Mom was born and raised here in Kamloops, where she married her 1st husband Lloyd Woods. They lived in Hudson Hope, Mica Creek and then Armstrong where mom continued to live. Mom and Chico would have celebrated their 20th anniversary on December 31.

She was a stay at home mom to her two daughters until the mid 1980’s when she began working at K-mart which then became Zellers until her retirement last year. She was a dedicated employee who worked for over 25 years.

Just when retirement was allowing us to spend more time together with you Mom you were taken from us…you were so brave through this last month and it was our honor to be by your side. Momma we will miss you.

A memorial service will be held this Saturday January 11, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the Valleyview Bible Church, 2386 East Trans Canada Frontage Road, Kamloops BC with Pastor Dan Warkentin officiating.
