Darla Frances Bolin was born September 13, 1967 in Stettler, Alberta to Olga Bolin and Floyd Schultz, the youngest child in a family of six. Darla grew up in the Bashaw and Stettler area and attended school in Stettler.

On September 4, 1999 she married the love of her life, Clayton Lambert. She worked in various restaurants in Stettler and Bashaw and for the last few years, was head cook at Paragon Place, where she was loved by the residents and staff. She enjoyed camping, cooking, texting and visiting with friends. She had the ability to find any person, like an amateur private investigator. Collecting was a passion of Darla’s, from dishes to a rather large collection of blankets, she always said that there is no such thing as too many blankets.
