October 13, 1946 — September 20, 2023



On September 20, 2023, Darlene Green Kirchen, surrounded by her family, was called home by our Heavenly Father.

Darlene was born to Cecil Hanson Green and Flora Lee Green on October 13, 1946 along side her twin sister, Charlene Small.

Darlene was a self-employed Beautician. She retired at the age of 73 from Head Rush Salon in Waxahachie. Doing hair was her passion and truly loved making women feel beautiful. She was a joyful person, always smiling and loved to shop. She knew the latest styles and trends. She always had her hair fixed, makeup on, with the best shoes and the best matching outfits. She was one-of-a-kind and a true gem.
