Daughter of the late Alvin Horace Roberts and Lula Mae (Walker) Roberts, Darline was born December 12, 1924 at Orr, Oklahoma. Following a long and useful life she passed away Monday, June 24, 2019, in Oklahoma City at the age of 94 years, 6 months and 12 days. A graduate of Marietta High School, Darline met the love of her life and married, W.F. “Bill” Pennington on August 15, 1943. They welcomed a son, Lynn in 1946 and a daughter, Marcia in 1947. Darline and Bill were approaching their forty-seventh wedding anniversary, when Bill passed away, June 22, 1990. After owning and operating Bill’s Grill with her husband, Darline served the Ardmore Public Schools for twenty years; at Franklin Elementary cafeteria as a cook and manager and later at Will Rogers Elementary, retiring in 1990. Mamaw’s true joy was the time she spent with her family and friends, traveling and playing cards. As an active member of the TOPS organization, she developed friendships that lasted over forty-five years. A life-long and faithful member of the Church of Christ, Darline enjoyed helping the congregation with meals. Her incredible talent as a seamstress and her encouraging nature were a gift to us all.
