In Loving Memory of Darlene Kay Whitley

Fund Type: Memorial Donations

Washington, NC

Fundraiser ends on November 29, 2023

Beaufort County Animal goals are to create partnerships within the community in order to promote responsible pet ownership, decrease the overpopulation of domestic pets through spay/neuter programs, and to place adoptable animals in good homes.

Darlene Kay Whitley, a true force of nature and an absolute force for good, has tragically left this world on October 29th, 2023. Born on July 22nd, 1961, in the beautiful Beaufort County, NC, Darlene was a shining example of living life to the fullest and caring with her whole heart. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who poured all her love into her family, both human and furry.

We are here to celebrate Darlene's incredible spirit by raising funds for a charity that truly embodies her essence: the Beaufort County Animal Control Shelter. With every donation, we can carry forward Darlene's legacy of compassion and ensure that countless animals receive the love, care, and shelter they deserve.

Darlene was truly one-of-a-kind, walking through life with an independent and high-spirited attitude. She had a heart as big as the ocean and a laugh that could brighten up any room. Her way of living was simple yet profound: family above all. She would have given the shirt off her back to help those she loved, and it's time we show our gratitude by supporting a cause she held dear.

Thank you for honoring Darlene's life in the most meaningful way possible. Your donations, no matter how big or small, will be deeply appreciated and will directly benefit the animals at the Beaufort County Animal Control Shelter. Together, we can make sure that Darlene's legacy lives on, creating a better tomorrow for our furry friends.

Thank your for celebrating the life of a remarkable woman through your donation.
