Darcy Rae Nyland, 44, of Harwood, N.D., passed away Monday, January 20, 2014 at Sanford Hospital in Fargo.

Darcy was born on August 27, 1969 in Mauston, Wis., and was raised in Frazee, where she graduated from Frazee High School.

After receiving a degree in nursing at Fergus Falls, she pursued, with a passion, a career of dedication and support for those under her care, going so far as becoming obstetrics manager at St. Mary's hospital in Detroit Lakes at one time.

Her marriage to James Johnson, Frazee, resulted in three children, Clint, Josie Rae and Mel. She met her current husband Scott Nyland in 2002, and together they had a son, Lake.

Surviving Darcy are her mother, Darlene Bowen of Mount Enterprise, Texas; four children, Clint (Emily) Johnson of Detroit Lakes, Josie Rae Johnson and Mel Johnson, both of Frazee, and Lake Nyland of Harwood; two brothers, Bruce (Suzanne) Bowen of Barnesville and Daniel (Colinda) Bowen of Minneapolis; two sisters, DeAnne (Charlie) Lessert of Wellston, Okla., and Donna (Loren) Guck of Perham; many nieces and nephews; and her husband, Scott C. Nyland.

Preceding her in death were her father, Bruce Bowen, and a brother, David Bowen.

Her bright eyes and special smile will be missed. Rest now in the arms of the Lord, Baby Girl.

Visitation is from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, with a 7 p.m. prayer service to follow, at Zion Lutheran Church, Harwood. The funeral will be 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24 at the church. Online condolences may be shared at
