Obituary of Darlene Higgs

It is with deep sadness that the family of Darlene Anne Higgs (nee Johnson) announce her sudden passing at her home in Saskatoon on Monday January 16th, 2023. She was born on March 26th, 1942 in Edmonton AB to Anne and Lloyd Johnson. She grew up in North Battleford with her mom and sisters. She met Bob and they were married in 1959. During their lifetime they lived in North Battleford, Yorkton, Moose Jaw, and Saskatoon where they retired. Darlene (Nan) is survived by her children; Brenda L. Higgs, Robert N. (Stacey) Higgs; grandson Nico (Chelsey) great grandson Luca; granddaughters Ashlyn, Cassandra and Alexis great granddaughter Charly; her sister Beverly (Bernie) and nieces and nephew. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 59 years Robert (Bobby) C. Higgs, her mother Anne Johnson, father Lloyd Oscar Johnson and her youngest sister Sharon Johnson. Nan was a talented photographer and a thoughtful, kind, generous, stubborn, strong, fiercely independent woman. Thoughts of Nan’s rockets, black liquorice, pringles, and the special memories captured in her photos will always bring a smile to those who received them over the years. Each photo-book she created was an act of love and will forever remind  us of our deeply loved sister, mom, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. The family would like to extend its sincere gratitude to: Pam Watt , Denys Kornuta and Emergency Services that were directly responsible for her care and the family on Monday. At mom’s request there is to be no funeral but in her memory have desert first for your next meal. In lieu of flowers please buy a desert and enjoy with your family or friends.
