Darlyne Anne (Higginbotham) Larson was born on April 5, 1929, in Nashwauk, MN, to Robert and Clara (Rollin) Higginbotham. The family moved to Alaska when the Alaskan Highway was completed. Darlyne graduated from Palmer, Alaska, then returned to Minnesota, where she trained to be an LPN. She worked at Glen Lake Sanatorium and Hennepin County Public Health in their Chest Center. Darlyne was united in marriage to Charles Sims, and to that union were born three children: Kim, Chris, and Tracy Sims. She was later married to Wendell Larson of Minneota. Darlyne resided at Morningside Heights Care Center for the last four and a half years. She was active with the American Legion Auxiliary and the Order of the Eastern Star.

Darlyne was an avid pet lover, and she treasured all dogs and cats. She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Darlyne and Wendell enjoyed many trips together, as well as going to casinos and concerts. They also enjoyed quiet time at Moon Lake.

Darlyne passed away peacefully on Friday, April 16, 2021, surrounded by family, at Morningside Heights Care Center in Marshall. She is survived by her sister Delayne Burke; daughter Kimberly (Raul) Planes of Rosemount; sons Chris Sims of California and Tracy (Heidi) Sims of Ramsey; step-children Linda (Richard) Nuytten of Minneota and Danny (Tracy) Larson of Minneota; grandchildren Corey Nielsen, Chris (Sarah) Sims, Tyler Sims, Afton Sims, Jess (David) Moriarty, Paul (Sarah) Nuytten, Rachel (Tim) Farrell, and Renee Larson; and great-grandchildren Marshall and Lennon Sims, Imogen, Padraic, and Rabent Moriarty, Ryder and Reese Nuytten.

Blessed be her memory.
