Marlyne Marie Olsen was born on April 27, 1925, to Knud and Vera (Bellefeuille) Olsen at the St. Thomas Hospital in Marshalltown, IA. She was educated in the Marshalltown schools, graduating in 1943. Marlyne married Wallace Brindle of Conrad while he was stationed in the Air Force at Sioux Falls, SD, on June 24, 1944. She enjoyed membership and serving in offices in the American Legion Auxiliary, Royal Neighbors, Thursday Club, and Farm Bureau Homemakers. Marlyne served as Executive Secretary of the Iowa SPF (Specific Pathogen Free) Association and later, as the National Secretary until she retired. These organizations were for the raising of disease-free hogs. Among her many pursuits, she most enjoyed playing her Hammond Organ, teaching the Alice Church Adult Sunday School Class for 32 years, teaching and assisting with VBS (Vacation Bible School), and singing in both the church choir and as a soloist. As a result of letters to editors of various newspapers, Marlyne was asked to write a column called "Marlyne's Meanderings" for the Conrad Record, which she did for six years. After taking courses in Norwegian Rosemaling, she pursued the craft for 13 years. Over a thousand visitors registered at her home for demonstrations and to view and purchase items from her L-shaped shop. Marlyne's works are in almost every state including Alaska, and China and several other foreign countries. Her arts and crafts were sold in gift shops in the New England states. In 1990, Wallace and Marlyne held a farm machinery sale and Wallace retired from farming. In 2003, they purchased a condo in Conrad, eventually moving to the nursing home as their health failed.

Marlyne is survived by a son, Jerry (Dee) Brindle of Marshalltown, a daughter, Julie (Ron) Branan of Belton, MO; four grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; three step great grandchildren; and one foster great grandchild. Preceding her in death were her parents, a sister, Martha (Bob) Olsen of Texas, and her husband of 73 years, Wallace Brindle.

Marlyne was a special person as her husband Wally. You could see the love they had for Jesus and was ready to share it to the world. Bless their family and comfort them at this time of their loss. We all will see them in heaven Hallelujah
