CHAR­LOTTE - Mar­lene had a peace­ful tran­si­tion to a bet­ter place. She de­parted on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 23, 2018. Mar­lene fought COPD for decades and it fi­nally wore her out. She was 66 years old. She has left be­hind her hus­band of 27 years, Bob, a son JD of Hawaii, and a step­son Char­lie of Durham. Mar­lene was born in Pitts­burgh, and raised in Meadville, Pa. She could ride horses, and had to get up and milk the cows, and was proud that she knew all about farm­ing. Her mother Frieda, sis­ter Liz, and broth­ers Bob and Art. Still live in east­ern Penn­syl­va­nia. There are many lov­ing neph­ews and their spouses, their chil­dren, and a gag­gle of step­sis­ters. Too many friends too list. Many cousins are also feel­ing her ab­sence, but es­pe­cially Jimmy. Her fa­ther Art and sis­ter Eileen pre­ceded her in death. Mar­lene’s wish was to keep her pass­ing low key. Cel­e­bra­tions of her life will be held in Char­lotte, Durham, and Meadville later. She was al­ways up for a party and wants to be in­cluded in spirit in a few more.

If any­one feels the need to do some­thing, Mar­lene was a big sup­porter of lo­cal SPCA’s.
