During her free time you can find Darlene cooking, reading, playing golf, shopping, or watching sports. She also loves spending time on her boat on Lake Weir, where she enjoys time with her family and friends.  She has been with her husband Chip Parrish since 2002 and they were married on 8-8-8 in Torch Lake, Michigan.  She has 3 step children and 5 step grandchildren.  And many furry little friends. 


Darlene prides herself in helping others to make their Dreams Come True – sometimes more than once. Many of her customers are currently enjoying their 2nd, 3rd and 4th homes! Darlene thanks all of her loyal customers for their continued support and for helping make her dreams come true too. The wisdom and kindness she learns from her customers is like no other.

“I love working for the Morse Family. They truly are an American dream and they are beyond selfless. They care about this wonderful place and have worked very hard for it. They take amazing care of their employees. The vision they have for the residents allows them to have the time of their life to really create their retirement dream! I hope to retire and enjoy this amazing place one day with all of you.”   This place keeps you young!!
