Our Darling, Our Beloved
Darlene Anita was born September 23, 1951, in Tampa, Florida. She was the eldest of four children blessed to the union of Preston Mobley Sr. and Florence Lola Reddick-Mobley. Darlene joins her parents whom preceded her in death and her beloved spouse Charlie Patterson Jr. As the eldest, Darlene held earnestly her role as first born and fluidly shifted from forerunner to caregiver; advising, inspiring, and correcting when deemed necessary. With style and resilience she presented herself to this world, unapologetically, and as one for others to emulate. Whichever the role, she was and is dearly beloved.
Throughout her 35 years of service as a transitional leader in law enforcement and correctional counseling, she was a beloved example of how to elevate the professional responsibilities of a “peacekeeper” to the higher calling of a “peacemaker”. Though petite in stature, her often stern and just countenance was equally tempered by her grace, her love, and her desire for reconciliation with others and to God. Truly,
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.”
Darlene passed into peaceful rest on Wednesday, January 13, 2021. In remembrance, she continues to live in the hearts of her devoted son and extended families, Charlie Patterson III (Felicia); her siblings and their families, Preston Mobley, Jr. (Ann) of Georgia; Verlene Renita (Jimmy Warner, Sr.) of Kansas, Lolita Prestina (Fredric Martin) of Oklahoma; seven nephews and their families, De’Anthony Mobley (Kimberly), Curtis Williams & family, Quentin R. Mobley, John Warner II & family, Jimmy Warner Jr., Michael Henry Warner, and Mantle Z. Martin; cousins and their families, Michael Story (Cheryl) of Tennessee, Donovan Reddick (Carey) of Virginia; Ruth Metcalf (Michael) of North Carolina, Denise Skinner-Hurst (Obie) of Georgia; and family friends Daisy & Johnny Moses, Regina & Joe Bryant, and Collette Sims. Rest in peace. Our Darling. Our Beloved. You have answered the Father’s call.
