David & Jimmy, I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I had been thinking about her alot lately. I have so many great memories of her back in my St. Lawrence days. I just loved Marlene. I will never forget her trying to Moon walk over at Jackie’s. She was so much fun and just such a good person. Its crazy how fast time flies and before you know it, 10 years have gone by but it just seems like yesterday. I wish I could have had one more moment with her……I am so sorry for you loss.

I just learned of Marlene’s death. I’m so sorry and pray for your peace and comfort in the months ahead. I enjoyed my seven years working with her at St Lawrence Hospital Admissions Office. She was a terrific supervisor and good friend.
