Loraine Darlow Obituary

Stevensville - Our dear mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Loraine Vasil Darlow, 92, passed away Monday, April 10, 2023. She was born February 18, 1931 to Christos Dionysios and Ida Belle Drogitis in Opheim, MT. She graduated from the Opheim Senior High School 1948 and went on to complete secretarial training at Northern Montana College in Havre. She married Donald Coburn, Sr. in 1950 and later married John “Jack” C. Darlow, Jr., May 5, 1961 in Helena Montana. This created a blended family of eight children, Billie J. Miller of Missoula, Daniel (Arlene) Coburn of Stevensville, Donald (Terri) Coburn of Helena, David Darlow (passed away 2009), Mike (Jeanne) Darlow of Boise, ID, Daniel "Boone" (Candelaria) of Saginaw, TX, Gary (Laurie) Darlow of Gillette, WY, and Mark (Tracey) Darlow of Butte. She worked briefly as a bank secretary, however, her devotion and greatest joy was raising a family. As a child she played clarinet, loved to write poetry, and enjoyed being with her father and mother in whatever they were doing. She had a love for square dancing, family history work, reading, needlework, and oil painting. She was preceded by her husband and son David, as well as her parents, brother, and three sisters.
