I am so sorry to read about Marlene. I always received a Christmas card from her for 36 years after I left Beaver County. I will always remember her for the ceramic classes and I still have many cherished pieces! I also worked with her at the Medical Center, she was a great nurse. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family!
