Darlene Lauris Dobson


Darlene Lauris Dobson

The sudden passing of Darlene Lauris Dobson, 61, of Dorchester, NB, occurred on Tuesday, October 29, 2019.  Born in Sackville, Darlene was the only daughter of Helen (nee McKinnon) and the late Raymond Phinney.

Darlene was predeceased by her father, Raymond.
