Darleen Dahmann, 88, of the Independence Community, died March 25, 2019.
Darleen was born to parents Arthur and Anne Constance Almen, August 15, 1930, in Milwaukee, WI. She married her childhood sweetheart Lyle Schneidewent in 1948 and raised her five children in Wisconsin. She was an accomplished seamstress and was involved in the Garden Club and was an officer of her area Homemakers Club. They moved to Fredericksburg, Texas in 1978 and opened a small shop filled with the things she loved including antiques and handcrafted items created by area artisans. Sadly, Lyle passed away in 1983.
Darleen later married Albert R. Perry and started a new chapter of her life in the Bellville, Texas area. When not tending to their gardens they traveled extensively until his death from a long-time illness in 1994.
In 1998, Darleen was introduced to Wallace Dahmann by mutual friends and they married in July of 1999. They enjoyed time with their friends and family in the Independence Community and attended Bethlehem Lutheran Church in William Penn. The two could often be found enjoying the peaceful view from their back porch.
She was preceded in death by her parents Art and Connie; three husbands Lyle (1983) , Albert (1994), and Wallace (January 2019); sisters Priscilla Gifford and Ellen Gayle Engen; and her sister “by choice” Alice Krause.
