Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Darla Duran, 69 of Gunnison and most recently Montrose, passed away on Feb. 5, 2024. She was born to Philip and Frances Duran in Gunnison, Colorado, where she spent most of her life.

Darla was a caretaker at heart. She was always willing to help others and would give you the shirt off her back. She had a love of working and her many different jobs as a caregiver, in hospitality and customer service allowed her to help even more people. Darla had a special love for animals. She always had animals of her own, and some that were not her own, but she loved them all the same. Her faith and willingness to share her faith with others helped her and her family through many things throughout her life. She had a great sense of humor and was always cracking jokes, making people laugh and being ornery.

She is survived by daughter Frances Duran, son Jason Johnson (Jaymi), grandchildren Adrianna Cole (Torren), Jacob Martinez (Raven), Joseph Bracamonte (Venessa), Isabella Smith, Erik Johnson, Jason Johnson Jr., and Ethan Johnson; great-grandchildren Zoey and Rain Bracamonte, Tatum Schultz, Noah, Wyatt and Tanin Cole. Siblings Joyce Sanchez, Judy Cabral (Poncho), Teri Caldera (Miguel), Cathy Mendez (Steven), Kenny Duran and Anita Espinoza; parents John Espinoza and Mary Duran; and many nieces and nephews who she loved dearly.

Darla was preceded in death by her parents and brother Thomas Duran.
