Mary Elizabeth (Darling) Bellonger, 77 of Sioux Falls, SD and formerly of Williamstown, MA passed away surrounded by loved ones on Friday, November 8, 2019 at the Williamstown Commons.
Mary was born in North Adams, MA on December 25, 1941 to the late Arthur and Ruth (Haskins) Darling and resided at the family homestead on North St in Williamstown. After graduating from Williamstown High School in 1959 she worked in various town establishments such as Dox drugs, Chef’s hat and North Adams Regional Hospital as a secretary in the lab. One of her most proud endeavors, Mary graduated from the Nursing Program at McCann Technical School as an LPN at the age of 42 and became employed at the North Adams Regional Hospital once again as an LPN. Her nursing career continued at the locally owned Sweetbrook Nursing Home until her retirement. Mary and her former husband, Richard “Bud” Trombley, provided foster care to over eighty juveniles over a twenty year period. She remarried on December 21, 2005 and relocated to Sioux Falls, SD., but Williamstown was always home. After a lengthy battle with cancer, she took the only flight of her life aboard an Angel Medflight to get back to town and family for her final days.
Mary is survived by her husband, Terry Bellonger, of Sioux Falls, SD and her beloved dog Misha. She is also survived by her daughter Andrea Bryant and her husband Daniel of Williamstown, MA and her son Richard Kenneth Trombley, Jr. and his wife Tammy of North Pownal, VT as well as stepchildren Troy Bellonger, Terri Lynne Johnson and Timothy Bellonger, all of Sioux Falls. She leaves five grandchildren Richard K. Trombley III of Bennington, VT, Amber Pease and her husband Nicholas of Williamstown, James Bryant and his wife Emily of North Adams, and Alyssa and Luke Trombley, both of North Pownal, VT as well as five great-grandchildren Emily, Haven, Autumn, Noah and Ava. Mary leaves her elder sister Brenda Gaylord of Bradenton, FL and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her siblings Joan (Lestage) Mason, Linda (Darling) Cox, Perry Darling and Robert Darling. She held very close relationships with former family members Holly Mead and Joel Alvarado who remained family to her.
FUNERAL NOTICE: Services for Mary will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at the Sherman Burbank Memorial Chapel in Williamstown followed by a burial at the family plot in Westlawn Cemetery.

Dearest Folks;
As we pay our final respects to Mary..let the peace that passes all understanding fill your hearts with joy. She has taken her second and final flight. The first was on the Angel Med Flight..@ 41,000 foot altitude. Where only spy planes and Astronauts fly higher. This time..her flight will arrive in Heaven.. on God's Airline. While married to her.. she had a collection of Angels. Looking back.. I wonder if there was some latent message in that? I believe there was. For now she is one. As a Nurse..her patients surely thought she was. As did her co-workers. . who gave her a number of those Angels as gifts. The whys and wheres may be open to debate. But they are a common thread, woven through Mary's life. Though not in Massachusetts, to share with the friends and relatives, I shared 14 years with my Angel. Rejoice in knowing that Angels were instrumental in ensuring Mary's return to her homeland. The joy I've received, in seeing so many of her loved one's hearts warmed by her priceless beyond description. That more than compensates for my not being there. If she were to speak from 'over there'...she might say something like: "This place is real. No more sorrow. No more tears. Just joy unspeakable and full of Glory...forever in the presence of Jesus Christ and the loved ones who've gone before. Do not miss out on this. I'll be waiting for you." Amen, Mary. Humbly yours, Terry

Family and Friends:
Though words are necessary to communicate, moments like these may put our abilities to a supreme test. We struggle to comfort one another, with expressions that soothe broken hearts, as well as conveying uplifting hope of that glorious realm with the Savior..Jesus Christ. Let your hearts be your guide, the words, though conveyed through tears, will follow. Trust me on that. I had the grand privilege of meeting and marrying Mary. Dec. 21, 2019 would have been our 14th Anniversary. (on my sister's birthday ) Those years included our 2017 trip, via Sioux Falls, to Louisiana, to Florida and AMTRAK's Auto-Train, up the East Coast to New England. A brief trip up to Maine marked my having been in all 50 states. A life's goal of mine. Our great moments were shared. Perhaps the most significant being our Angel Med Flight, That was the ultimate miracle for her family. The joy on their faces, to have Mary back home, was priceless to behold. Only the great Banquet of the Lamb, in Heaven, will exceed what I had the blessings to be a part of. Rejoice for Mary..and give thanks to God, for it all. Til we meet again..Beyond the Sunset. Peace, Terry L. Bellonger
