On Wednesday April 5th, 2017 at 4:48pm, our Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, and friend closed her eyes and went to heaven to meet her Lord, Jesus Christ.
Darlene Ann Cagle, graced this world on September 21st, 1937 to Lloyd John Fosmark and Syneva Moe in Seattle Washington.

Darlene left this world with her children, daughter-in-law and grandson at her side. She is survived by her son, Michael E. Smith (Sharon) of Everett Washington, her daughter Tammy R. Smith of Shoreline Washington, sister Donna Mabbut of Idaho, Sister Karen Billiot of Florida, grandchildren Gary Lynch, Chris Lynch, Nicole Wilson (Brandon Popple) John Thompson (Misty), and 8 great -grandchildren, nieces and nephew as well as her cat Sharla plus plenty of friends who loved and adored her.

Darlene was preceded in death by her husband Ray Cagle, her mother Syneva Moe, father Lloyd Fosmark, brother Pastor Einar Eugene Smith of Australia.
Among her many accomplishments in life, are raising 2 amazing children on her own. Darlene worked a short time at Boeing, a local candy factory, Technicolor Photo and her main passion was working in Healthcare. Darlene worked at Christa Senior Assisted Living Facility from August 1989, then retiring in 2008 at the age of 71.

Darlene was a member of Westgate Chapel church in Edmonds. She loved the Lord and worshiping in his Name. Throughout her life with many hardships and health conditions, she remained faithful to the Lord up to her last breath upon this earth. Her family, friends, and acquaintances will miss her dearly. Darlene was an intercessor and prayer warrior who interceded on behalf of her family, friends and those less fortunate than her. She will be greatly missed by all who are left behind, but we will be reunited when we each join her in heaven.

Thank you to the many people and medical/rehab facilities along this last journey of 5 months for your care, loving support, blessings, prayers and time. Especially Darlene’s best friend of many years Shirley Herman, and Barbara Lee who was the essence of God in her final time.

A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers we ask that you make a donation to either Westgate Chapel Church in Edmonds or Evergreen Health Hospice Care in Kirkland.

    Grandma I can’t explain in words how much you mean to me you taught me not to judge somebody by their ethnicity religion or sex or how much money they have or where they grew up or live at but who they are as a human being. Grandma you also taught me there’s only one judge and that is Jesus Christ. God has blessed me with the best grandma in the world. The time I spent with you is priceless. The greatest thing you have ever done for me was you introduce me to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Grandma you will live on forever in my heart love Chris

    Mom, the last 5 months were very difficult for you. But you endured that storm until the end. Our heavenly Father graciously welcomed you into His glory at your passing. This is not good bye but so long until we meet on the streets of gold and worship around the Throne together. Look forward to meeting you and all those who are dear to us on the other side. So long Mom. Mike

    And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb(Rev 22:1).

    My dear sister Darlene…You were a light to our family in your love and trust for God in your life. Even during the past 5 months through all your trials and your illness your love for God never wavered. Your example of a deep love and trust in God is what I desire for my life.
    I will miss the sunshine you brought into my life. Your cheerfulness and laughter in life will truly be missed. I can remember all the times we sat in your living room and laughed about things. I especially will miss talking to you on the phone and praying together. God blessed me with a wonderful sister.
    My reassurance that we will one day be together again at the throne of God fills my heart with joy and peace. You are now at peace sitting at the throne with our Heavenly Father basking in His presence forever more. I love you my dear sister.

    Our deepest sympathy to Darlene’s family especially Tammy, Chris and Gary.

    Tammy, may your continued faith and trust in Christ support you in the times when you will miss your mother the most. She was blessed to have you as her daughter and at her side, especially these last months. I am blessed to call you my friend.
