    Barry & I want to send our heartfelt sympathy to Marlenes family.

    She was and always will be my one and true friend. None are as close as those friends you make when one is young and in school.
    Our lives are all so much richer for having known Marlene. Words can not express our sorrow but prehaps it helps knowing she touched so many lives and to know so many share your loss. God bless you all Dorothy Mcvey (Vetter)

  2. Dear Ed,

    It was with sadness that I learned of your loss of Marlene. I have very happy memories of her when she was our CGIT leader in Provost many long years ago. Looking back, I admire her dedication to our group and have a special place in my heart for her for the fun and joy she shared with us all. She was a treasure.

    Bill and I want to extend our deepest sympathy to your and your family on your loss. I know she will be greatly missed.

    Donna & Bill Paynter
