Darlene (Kinkela) Rubin, 78, of Slovan, passed away peacefully Wednesday, February 1, 2023 in Florida while visiting her family.
Born June 20, 1944, in Washington, PA, to the late John and Anna (Esno) Kinkela, Darlene, to all who knew her, was a spunky, fun loving and caring person who touched the lives of all who knew her. When you’d hear the word BINGO, you knew Darlene was around. She loved playing cards, spending time with friends, listening to music and rarely missed an episode of Let’s Make a Deal and The Price is Right. However, the joy of her life was her grandchildren who she loved spending time with.
Darlene is survived by her sons’ Marty (Karla) Ragan, and Ron (Paula) Ragan, her grandchildren Jessica, Marah, Cameron, Connor, Jenna, and Jayden, great granddaughters Malia and Mirabella and many nieces and nephews. All of these she loved and cared for deeply.
She is also survived by her loving life companion, Robert Grabski. Who has made her last 17 years happy!
In addition to her parents Darlene is also preceded in death by her sisters’ Mary Gavazzi and Irene Mlatnik, brothers’ John Kinkela Jr. and Dennis Kinkela and granddaughter Jasmine Ragan.
Friends are welcome for visitation on Thursday, February 9th, 2023, from 1 pm to 6 pm with a 6 pm service officiated by Pastor Angela Kress at Young Funeral Home & Cremation Services Inc. 23 Erie Mine Road, Burgettstown, PA 15021 724-947-2049 www.youngfhinc.com
