Cuz Marlene/ (aka named Murline by my mother) was full of life and love in the deepest ways. Her gifts from the heavenly Father were many; strong faith based daughter, sibling, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, great aunt, dear cousin and friend to many.
Her humor and keen imagination will always be my strongest memories of her from high school classes through families times. Her big smile topped with a hearty laugh will be more than missed. From age 14 to date, I am so privileged to have known her. With much love for her and her families, Lu

She always had a beautiful smile and loving, caring ways. She will be missed by many. Hugs to her family❤️

My heart aches for this sweet family! Marlene was such a sweet lady who inspired many. She was a great Christian lady who I looked up to and admired! She will be truly missed. There will be a major void that no one can fill. Thoughts, love and prayers are with all family, friends and all who knew Marlene! Her generosity spread like wildfire! After all she went through and endured you never heard her say anything negative or you never heard her complain even though she had every right. Marlene, I know that I’ll see you again one day because there is not one doubt in my mind where you are!

Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

Please accept my condolences for your loss. I pray that you find comfort in your memories of Marlene and the warmth in God's promises to end this pain you are experiencing. Its comforting to know that God understands our suffering and promises a future where we can be truly happy and be reunited with our loved one. Please read Revelation 21:3,4 and John 5:28,29.
