Dart described life as a wonderful roller coaster. She even stated, “It was just how God wanted it to be.” Her favorite sayings were, “Lefty loosey – righty tighty”, “Never go to bed mad at each other”, “Sweet dreams” and “I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck”. Some of her favorite times were holding her grandbabies and great-grandbabies during camping trips and vacations and being able to visit with them. Darts most remarkable accomplishments were that she survived cancer twice and became one of the best forklift drivers for Bohn and Dawson. She stated “I could pick a dime up off the floor. He challenged me to prove it. Fastest $500.00 I ever made.” Dart enjoyed her time at the Casino, Las Vegas with her late sister Carol, poker nights, bingo, Keno and playing horse shoes. God’s mission to Dart is to be kind and love one another, forgive, don’t judge and treat others as you wish to be treated.
