Darlene Parra

May 9, 1937 — May 17, 2019

Darlene B. Parra (nee Wolske), of Sheboygan Falls, formerly of Sheboygan, passed away Friday evening, May 17, 2019 at Rocky Knoll in Plymouth. She was 82 years old.
Darlene was born May 9, 1937 in Sheboygan, the daughter of Rudolph and Hilda (nee Kohls) Wolske. She attended local schools, and attended Central High School. She was united in marriage with Hector Parra in Cicero, Illinois.
For 40 years, Darlene worked at St. Nicholas Hospital as a nurses aide and later, a physical therapy assistant. She retired from Great Lakes Physical Therapy in Sheboygan after 7 years.
Darlene was a longtime member of St. Luke United Methodist Church, where she was active in various groups and committees. She loved to read, travel, and above all spend time with her family and friends who will never forget her contagious smile and laugh. She was a caregiver to many throughout her life. As the matriarch of her family, she leaves behind a loving legacy of family first.
Darlene is survived by her husband of over 60 years, Hector and their children: Lee (Monica) Parra of Kiel, Charles (Cheryl) Parra of Howards Grove, Raquel (Robert) Speciale of Cascade, Joseph (Jodi) Parra of Sheboygan Falls and Curt (Toni) Parra of St. Louis, MO.
