Darlene Wildman was born September 20, 1939 in Jerome, Idaho to Donald Haberman and Gertrude Timm. She was the oldest of three daughters, followed by Juanita and Sharon. At eight years old her family divorced, and she was so blessed to be adopted by her grandparents, Tony and Jessie Haberman, who were also raising their nephew, Keith Kersey, giving her a big brother.
She was a graduate of Jerome High school, class of 1957, and still has many friends from those happy days. After graduation she moved to Southern California where she worked for Pacific Tel & Tel and married Dewain Hatridge. They were blessed with a son, Rick Hatridge.
In 1976 she returned to Idaho and married Don Wildman, who had three teenagers, Dawne, Andy, and Kim. They enjoyed camping, fishing, boating, and water and snow skiing. They also had a real joy of helping Rick raise his little girl, Karisha.
Don passed away June 5, 2016. She is survived by son Rick Hatridge, daughter Dawne Ward (Curt), son Andy Wildman, daughter Kimberly Lutz (Mike), sisters Juanita Starke and Sharon Sharp (Warren), brother Keith Kersey (Anne), aunt Larae Haberman, and sister-in-law Rozella Wildman.
