Cameron while he was stationed in Saskatoon, fell in love and married on December 14, 1957.

Darlene lived to live, which is her greatest legacy to her family and all who knew her. She was brilliant at whatever she did and was never intimidated by a challenge. She believed in helping people get ahead and she worked very hard in her accounting practice to do just that. She was never still, always busy with work or hobbies; she had boundless energy. Even while ill, she tried to continue until her body told her no more. Darlene is survived by her husband and best friend of almost 51 years, Martin Edward Cameron, Margaree Forks; her daughters, Laurie Cameron (Chris Corkum), Halifax; Leslie Pottier (John), Ottawa; Lynne Cameron (Ottawa); Leanne Fraser (Elliot), Baddeck; and son, David Cameron (Maureen), Detroit, Mich., as well as her grandchildren, Emily and Seamus Corkum, Amanda, Catherine and Mathew Pottier, Kieran MacGillivray, Joshua, Lara and Merrin Fraser, and Liam and Isabel Little and Dominique Cameron.
