It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. Darlene was born in Nashua, Montana on February 13, 1942. She graduated from Nashua High School, class of 1960.

Darlene married Clifford “John” Ramsbacher on October 29, 1960 at the Church of the Queen of Angels in Nashua Montana; they were married 59 years. They made their home in Fort Peck where they raised their three sons, Randall (Jodi) of Albuquerque, New Mexico; Ronald (Valarie) Ramsbacher of Missoula, Montana; and John (Robert) of San Francisco, California. She has four grandchildren, Dustin (Albuquerque), Mari (Albuquerque), Sarah (Phoenix), and Sean (Butte).

Darlene loved living on the Park Grove Dredge Cuts in Fort Peck being able to call the lake her backyard. In 2011, Darlene and John moved to Polson Montana where she could still have a lake in her backyard and be closer to family. They spent winters in Yuma Arizona from 2002-2017 and spent the last couple of winters in Missoula.

Darlene was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother who loved to cook and bake and kept the numerous guests fed when they came to visit at the lake. She taught her kids how to roller skate at the Nashua Community Center and bowl at Vicks Lanes every Sunday during the winter months and to waterski during the summer months. She loved playing cards whenever possible, although a little competitive.

Darlene operated the Fort Peck Credit Union for several years before entering a career with the Federal government and eventually retired from the US Army Corp of Engineers in Fort Peck.

She was predeceased by her parents John and Esther Brenden, her brother Dick Brenden and sister Jeanette Forest and survived by her sisters, Betty Isch Trueblood of Kalispell, Susan Vertz of Tucson and brother Gary Brenden of Leesburg, Florida.

A celebration of life will be held this Summer in Polson, Montana. Condolences may be shared with the family by visiting In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Ramsbacher Scholarship Fund in memory of her at the University of Montana ( or P.O. Box 7159, Missoula, MT 59807).

I am deeply saddened to hear of Darlene's passing. Darlene worked for me for several years while I was the Project Engineer at Fort Peck. She was always a wonderful source of information and really helped me out. I really enjoyed working with her. I will always value her friendship and want to express my deepest condolences to Johnny and her family. May she rest in peace.
