I’ll never forget that Marlene was the one who taught me how to tie my shoes when I was in kindergarten; a difficult task for me as a five year old, but the bunny-ear method worked like a charm. I’ll never forget that act of kindness.

My memory of Marlene and her sisters is 60 years old. But the memory of her beauty and grace is vivid in her old neighbor’s mind. My deepest sympathy to her husband and family.

I remember Marlene with a special smile. I enjoyed her coffees when coming home for the holidays, and also playing cards.

Marlene was a good friend with a smile. I have fond memories of fun summer evenings on 11th street. I am so sorry Marlene suffered poor health for many years. My best to Claire and family. Sarah Dunkerton Lande

Marlene was my first true love early in my high school years. She was fun, graceful and beautiful. And she had the most accommodating, wonderful mom who any of us could wish for. Her patience during our "kick the can" games on ninth street was endless. Marlene, you are missed!
Love, Bob Norris
