Darlene Carol Fournier-Linnell, 58, of Wareham died unexpectedly on October 2. She was a former Sandwich resident and leaves family here.

She was born in Wareham, the daughter of Marjorie M. (Fish) Fournier and Albert J. Fournier. She lived in Sandwich for most of her life and recently moved to Wareham.

Ms. Fournier-Linnell was the caregiver for her parents and, for more than 25 years, worked at Community Systems, Inc. in Buzzards Bay, where she assisted people with disabilities.

Fournier of Onset, David A. Fournier of Plymouth and Bryan W. Fournier of South Yarmouth; many nieces and nephews; and extended family.

A memorial service will be private for the family.
