Norristown crossing guard Darlene Stevens is the "Neighborhood Mom."

Called “Neighborhood Mom” by all, Norristown crossing guard Darlene Stevens is recognized for her devotion to the kids in the community, writes Justin Heinze for Patch.

Patch is partnering with T-Mobile to recognize community leaders by accepting nominations for these often-unsung heroes from Patch readers.

Melissa Kleinert, a Norristown reader, has nominated Stevens for her dedication to the neighborhood for more than 30 years.

Kleinert wrote, “Mrs. Stevens is a crossing guard. She was my crossing guard as a child and is now crossing the next generation. She not only keeps us all safe, she is always there with open arms to offer a hug or encouraging words.”

She added, “She has been our neighborhood angel for so many years and we all love her a lot. She has been honored before by our township for her outstanding work and dedication, but she deserves to be recognized on a larger platform.”
