Youngstown - Darlene Ann Antonucci left this Earth suddenly on December 27, 2020 at the young age of 60.
Darlene was born November 16, 1960 in Youngstown, a daughter of the late Joseph and Jane Polak Cefalde.
She was a 1977 graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School and attended Youngstown State University. After her schooling, she chased her dreams of living by the ocean and relocated to Sarasota, FL. Darlene wanted to share her love of the sand and sea with her daughters, creating many beautiful childhood memories for them to cherish. In 1996, when her mother's health began failing, Darlene moved back to Youngstown to help care for her.
Very creative and artistic, she enjoyed listening to music, especially Cher, and loved drawing. Generous and always thinking of others, Darlene loved to cook for everyone and enjoyed shopping, often buying things for others. She was a caring mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend. Darlene truly loved the simple pleasures in life and was happiest when she was surrounded by her daughters and grandchildren.
Darlene is survived by her daughters, Lisa Antonucci of Austintown and Joanne "Misty" Neff of Canfield; her grandchildren, Alissa, Carley, Shaina, Salvatore, and Giovanni; great-granddaughter, Baby Laila; her loving sister, Diane Begalla and husband Mike, along with their children; and brothers, JoJo and Daniel Cefalde.

They are requesting the honor of your presence on Saturday, April 10, 2021 from 2-6 p.m. at A La Cart Catering, 429 Lisbon Street, Canfield, Ohio 44406.
