Darlene Jo Fronk, age 64, passed away surrounded by her loved ones on January 1, 2020, at Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, WY. Darlene was born to George and Dolores Patik on January 19th, 1955 in Lander, WY.

Darlene grew up and graduated from high school in Lander, WY. After high school she was married and from that union she had three boys, George, Jeffery, and Brian. She was united in marriage on May 28th, 2006 to her love of her life Dale Roy Fronk. Darlene and Dale moved to Alliance, NE in 2001 where she went back to College to fulfill her lifelong goal of becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse.

She worked several years for Dr. Himes, in Scottsbluff, NE and later for Skyview Nursing Home in Bridgeport, NE and most recently when she and Dale moved to Casper, WY she worked at Poplar Living Center.

Darlene loved spending time doing anything outdoors including hunting, fishing, riding ATV’s, gardening, camping or sitting around a camp fire and she loved these times the most when she was with her husband and her boys. She never wanted the adventures with her family to end and couldn’t wait until the next time they all got together. She always was ready to spend time with the people she cared about. Because Darlene loved the outdoors so much she was always so excited to go to Hawaii with her husband every year for a month, in the winter time, to enjoy as much fun in the sun as she could. Darlene was extremely loyal to everyone she loved and was always there to talk to when you needed someone. She was an incredibly fun person to be with always ready to share lots of laughs with the people around her. Even though she is gone, she has left the legacy of her love. The way she touched our lives with remain forever and we will all have so many memories of the times we shared with her.
