Darcie “Babygirl” Beene was born Dec. 25, 1990, in Russellville, AR, to Danny and Kim (Wescott) Beene. Her family moved to Vermillion, and Darcie graduated from Vermillion High School in 2009. After high school, she became Certified Nurses Aid and began working at Sanford Care Center in Vermillion. She later moved to Sioux Falls, where she worked at the Good Samaritan Center until moving back to Vermillion in 2013, where she worked for Morris Inc.
Darcie loved riding four-wheelers whenever she could, attending stock car races and tractor pulls, taking care of her car, shopping and being outdoors. She especially loved spending time with her nephews and her dog BOSS. Everyone knew Darcie as “Babygirl”, a nickname her father gave her as a child. She truly was her father’s Babygirl and she will be greatly missed by everyone.
Survivors include her father, Danny Beene of Sioux Falls; mother, Kim Beene of Vermillion; two sisters, Marissa (Ross) Mockler of Burbank, and Danielle Beene of Vermillion; two nephews, Marshall and Landon; uncle, Greg (Nanci) Wescott of Harrisburg; two cousins, Bailee and A.J.; and her constant companion, BOSS.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, John and Judy Wescott.
