Rebekah Darlington

PRINCETON — Rebekah JoAnne Darlington, 55, of Princeton passed away Wednesday morning, Sept. 3, 2014, in the privacy and comfort of her home. Cremation has been accorded.

Becky Darlington was born Nov. 5, 1958, at her grandparents' home in Berlin Township to Robert and Carolina (Haynes) Henderson. She attended Tiskilwa High School. She spent the greater part of her adult life working as a laborer for OMITE and other manufacturers. However, the labor of love she enjoyed the most was when she got to train horses at the Hidden Valley Stables just outside of Sublette. Besides training and horseback riding Becky really enjoyed her gardening and never missed an opportunity to go motorcycle riding.

She is survived by her parents, Robert and Carolina from Englewood, Fla., and her daughter, Lori Swanson, and three grandchildren, Tyler, Devyn and Haley of Washington, Ill. Surviving also are three brothers and three sisters, Sheila (Carl) Evans of Princeton, Bryan (Shelly) Henderson of Mendota, Burt Henderson of Englewood, Fla., Bradley (Sophie) Henderson of Lake Arispie/Princeton, and the twins Dana (Brian) Lokker and Dianna (Rollis) Sandy, both of Englewood, Fla.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be directed to the family for distribution.

All arrangements have been made through Norberg Memorial Home, Princeton. Online condolences may be left at www.norbergfh.com.
