Darcy is a native to Remington, and spent her younger years growing up on a farm. She loved it and the many adventures it brought! She also is a talented singer and baker, and loves sharing those gifts with others, for them to enjoy. She actually has a little side business of making cupcakes, which she runs out of her house… it gives her an opportunity to make them while not having to eat them all! These two things… singing (and playing instruments) and baking are Darcy’s passions.
Darcy’s job here is defined as Production Manager; basically, she manages our production kitchen and stays on top of the making of our frozen foods. She stumbled upon the Homestead when she was in search of a job, and asked her friend if there were any open positions. She loves the atmosphere here and the laughter we all share together. It isn’t always easy, but its so rewarding when we can all work together to fight through a challenge!
Although– as she puts it– some feel like she’s a grandma stuck inside a young adult, (we disagree!) she loves to crochet, garden & can, and participate in anything outdoors. She also loves helping others, as she’s very active in her church group. Bet you didn’t know this: Darcy has tried out for both The Voice and American Idol! We occasionally get the privilege of listening to her sing to herself while she’s working.
One of Darcy’s greatest accomplishments was graduating Purdue with her Bachelor’s degree. It was such a great experience for her, which she would never want to give back. She met so many great people and friends living on campus and while it was wasn’t always easy, the satisfaction she got in overcoming obstacles was so well worth it. She has been inspired along the way by her husband, family, and Catholic faith. These are the what have kept her going…. She has God to look up to, and her husband and family to rely on!
Darcy is married to her husband Tommy, and doesn’t know what she would do without him! God placed him in her life when she needed him most, and as she puts it, the rest is history!
