My deepest sorrow to all of the MacDonald Families to Vanessa and family also Chrysta and family. I have so many fond memories of Marlene /Lois . I think the one that makes me smile the most is she and I taking the kids (Heather Bobby Joelene and Joe) trick or treating when they were little and she got a beer from one of the fathers she and i laughed so hard about that . Made the journey a lot more fun. She always dressed up no matter the occasion . I had the pleasure of working with her at Amphenol later and she was so much fun to be around . I know she missed Verne when he left us and I don't think she ever got over his passing , it took a bit of her spark for sure. Well Marlene you are together now , big hugs for the both of you. You were definitely a huge part of our lives our kids had lots of sleep overs and loved you Grandma and Grampa MacDonald . Rest in Peace my dear friend Love you
Nancy and John

I will always remember Aunt Marlene as a fun loving person that always had a smile on her face, loved a good laugh and truly adored her family. I will cherish the fun memories of the many family reunions held in Terra Cotta which Uncle Verne and Aunt Marlene never missed. My heart goes out to her family, she was a special person that will never be forgotten.
