I lived on Rhode Island near Marlene for years; I can still hear her laugh. She was a sweet and kind soul, who also had a great sense of humor. Marlene always greeted me with a smile and nice conversation. She will be missed.

From Anne Underwood...

Marlene was my treasured friend and neighbor for 17 years. My fondness for her was immediate and only grew as time went on. She was kind, funny, sincere, loving, interested, and interesting…to say the least. I am so sad for the loss of this precious soul in my life. We will all (Rodney, Grady, myself, and the cats) miss her deeply. Love and prayers to the family, and my deepest condolences. 🙏💞🌸

I’ve adored Marlene,since the first time she rode my Para Bus,(MANY) years ago ! We could always have a good “chuckle” (about most anything) ! I am grateful that I was able to see her (just last week)….She wasn’t on my schedule,regularly. I knew something was wrong (when “they” cancelled her morning ride);she rarely missed work !!! Certainly didn’t expect to lose her !!! Sincere thoughts,and prayers….💞🌈😇
