Much loved grandmother of Cameron, Liam, Hunter, Spencer, Dylan and Aidan. Marlene’s greatest loves, including reading, and spending time “up north”, have been gratefully inherited by her family. Her life’s influence and contributions stay with us and make us better people as a result. Cremation has taken place, and Marlene’s ashes will be scattered at one of her happiest places.
