1954 - 2024

Cheryl Cheryl "Darlene" Himes Humphreys, 69, of Barboursville, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, April 14, 2024. Darlene was born August 30, 1954, to the late Edward and Julia Himes in Waverly, TN. She grew up in Humphreys County, TN, with many cousins and other members of her extended family and graduated from Waverly Central High School. While in the Air Force, she then graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a degree in Business Administration in 1987 after attending Wright State University from 1983-1985. She retired from the USAF Air National Guard as MSGT with a total of 20 years of service after having served on active duty in the USAF and then in the USAF Reserves. In West Virginia, she worked as President of C & D Management, Inc. until her death. She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Edward and Julia Himes as well as her sister Connie Ruth Himes Hyer.

Darlene married David Humphreys on June 28, 1980, with whom she lived for almost 44 years. She was a devoted Christian, wife, mother, grandmother "Nainy" of her three wonderful grandchildren, aunt, and friend. She enjoyed her family and friends, especially time at Cave Run Lake in Kentucky. She was able to enjoy recent visits from family and friends from Tennessee, Kentucky and Chicago, Illinois. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Darlene is survived by her husband David Humphreys; beloved sons, David Jr. (Misty and their daughter Julia) of Mt. Juliet, TN, and Jonathan (and his daughter Annalise and son Noah) of Barboursville, WV; sister Patsy Davidson (Lavelle) of Paris, TN; brother-in-law Ted Hyer of McMinnville, TN, niece Kim Peebles (Sam) of Nashville, TN; nephews Jon Davidson (Mandy) of Paris, TN, and Joshua Hyer (Venessa) of McMinnville, TN; and a host of great-nieces and nephews, as well as many other family and friends.

Funeral services will be conducted at 10 a.m. Friday, April 19, 2024 at Wallace Funeral Home & Chapel, Barboursville, with the Rev. Dr. Gary Patton and the Rev. Dr. Jeff Garrett presiding. Interment will follow at Donel C. Kinnard Memorial State Veterans Cemetery, Dunbar, WV with full military honors.
