Auntie Marlene was dedicated to her nieces and nephews who share fond memories of her handsewn Halloween costumes, Christmas stockings, as well as her continued support and encouragement throughout their lives.
She will be remembered for her selfless behaviour, positive spirit, intelligence, and kind heart. Her greatest joys were spending time with her family, watching crime stories and baking shows, doing arts and crafts, and playing bingo.
