Terminally ill Saint-Lazare mother dies after struggle with breast cancer
Deanna Darby, a single mother of two from Saint-Lazare, died Sunday night. She had breast cancer, which was diagnosed as terminal by doctors in August after the disease had spread to her bones and liver.
Darby’s two children according to the group will be staying with another family member.
Members of the Circle of Friends group had come to the aid of the Darby family by starting a GoFundMe campaign this past summer.
The group raised close to $18,000 of their goal of $20,000 to cover Darby’s food costs and transport fees to her chemotherapy appointments.
The funeral service for the late mother will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18 at the Hudson Baptist Church at 3141 Cote Saint-Charles, doors open at 1 p.m.
People attending the funeral service no longer need to bring plush toys like previously asked.
