    Sincere Sympathy to Marlene’s family.
    She was a lovely lady and family friend. I will always remember her quiet and gentle way.
    Was so nice when she was at Virgis and we could visit and laugh about Coleman times.
    We will truly miss her.

  2. Lori, Cheryl, Michael,

    My sincere condolences for the loss of your Mom and my Aunty Marlene. She meant the world to me, and she was the most kind and generous Aunt that my sister and I could have ever asked for.

    I will always cherish the many dinners Aunty Marlene cooked Sourkraut and Dumplings for us, along with homemade Banana Slush mixed with Gingerale for Danyka and I. I will also never forget watching her and Uncle Tom dancing together, as well as the fond memories of the many trips to Edmonton to visit all of you when I was young. It is comforting to know that her and Uncle Tom are reunited, I’m sure they have been dancing up a storm together. I will miss her always.

    Love,

    Grady

    Lori, Cheryl and Michael,
    It is with a heavy heart that we say good-bye to Marlene. Your mother was always welcoming and supportive; her easy manner always comforting. Both your mom and dad were life-long friends of my parents and were our extended family. We have many fond memories of good times that we all shared. Marlene has begun her next journey and is once again with Tommy. The Hazuka family will always hold a special place in our hearts. May Marlene rest in peace and happiness, she will be missed.
    Mike and Lana Iwanski and family.

    Tim and I were so sad to hear of Marlene’s passing. Thank you Lori for thinking of us and letting us know. We send our heartfelt condolences to you, Cheryl, Michael, Terry, and the rest of your families.
    Marlene was a wonderful, kind, caring lady and we were very fond of her.
    Marlene and Tom were more than just our neighbors – we grew to love them both like family over the years.
    We know how much Marlene missed Tom since his passing so we take some comfort in knowing that they’re together once again. What a joyful reunion that must have been!
    We will never forget Marlene and Tom and consider ourselves so fortunate for having known them.
    With much love and affection,
    Natalie & Tim Ross
