Lois Darlene Bushnell
1939 – 2014

Lois "Darlene" Bushnell, 74, passed away in her home on July 10, 2014. She was a longtime Tehachapi resident.

Darlene was born on Aug. 16, 1939, in Fresno. In 1957 she married Richard W. Bushnell.

She was an amazing blackjack dealer for 18 years in Reno and Las Vegas, Nev. Her hobbies were gardening and her grandsons, Jesse and Dillon Lee.

Mrs. Bushnell is survived by two daughters, Kelli Barklind and Lissa Verdugo, both of Tehachapi; grandchildren, Brandy Dutton of Arkansas and Rachel Navarro of Oklahoma; six great-grandchildren; and Guy 1, her beloved cat.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard (Dicky); her mother-in-law, Thelma Hinds; and her son, Rick, in 1983.
We, as her family, want to thank Hoffmann Hospice for your caring, but professional way you helped with our mom.

Also, to the chaplain who came out at 3 a.m. without even blinking an eye.

And to everyone else we want to say ...DON'T TAKE LIFE FOR GRANTED because it can be over in an instant.

Wood Family Funeral Service, Inc. was entrusted with her care.  For condolences please visit
