In Memory of
Darrylin Francine Heard
-

Darrylin Francine Heard was born September 17, 1949 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Elger and Catherine Simmons. She was educated in the Detroit Public School System where she graduated from Central High School.

She accepted Christ at an early age under the leadership of Pastor J.E. Crouch at New Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church. Darrylin loved to sing and direct the choir...in fact, singing and directing were her passions along with cooking and traveling. During her time at New Mount Sinai she directed the Young Inspirationals, Pastors Choir and Gospel Chorus until her health could no longer permit.

On November 20, 1970 Darrylin married Wallace Christopher Heard and to this union two daughters were born, Ebony Lynnette and Adrienne Renae.

On April 22, 2003 Darrylin was stricken with stroke that left her partially paralyzed on the left side of her body. Although that was a traumatic event, that didn't stop her from doing the things she most wanted to do, including making the decision to leave Detroit in 2016 to move to Houston for warmer weather and to be closer to her grandson, Xander. For the last year and a half she enjoyed every second of being around Xander and watching him grow.

On Monday October 2, 2017, Darrylin departed this life surrounded by both her daughters and grandson and entered into eternity with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was preceded in death by her mother, father, husband and sister Denise. She leaves to cherish her memory daughters Ebony, Adrienne (Leo) Baker, grandson Xander, stepdaughter LaKisha Riggins and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives.

Our thoughts and prayers are most certainly with you at this time. We remember the wonderful blessing that your Mom was to us and we will always remember the gift of song that she shared with us at New Mt. Sinai. I Thessalonians 4:13-18 tells us that God is a God of comfort and he can and will bring you through in times like these. Take comfort in knowing that your Mom was loved dearly and she will be missed greatly.

Adrienne, we’ve known each other for over 20 years. In those 20 years, whenever you and I would talk or hang out you would make it known that your mother ALWAYS asked about me and to make sure you told me hi. Your mother was always so sweet, caring and friendly. I wish I could be there for you in your time of need, but I’m praying for you everyday. I love you and know that your mom will always be in your heart.
