Nick and Family- It is with profound sadness that Cindy and I learned of the passing of your beloved wife and mother, Marlene. I will always remember the smile she would give me when we would meet at St. Rose of Lima. It was warm and welcoming. Although her health was slipping she was more concerned for others, including me. We will always be grateful for her unselfish kindness. Our thoughts and prayers are with Marlene and all of you at this time. Her spiritual presence will always be a part of St. Rose of Lima and this community.
God Bless Marlene and all of you today and always.
Cindy and John Scott

My condolences to the Schmitt and Kieta families from the West Coast. So sorry to hear of Marlene’s passing. She was a person
who always possessed high moral standards in her life and passed it on to both her children and grandchildren. She completed her studies in the late ‘50’s to become a pharmacist which demonstrated both her academic ability and personal drive since the pharmacy profession was heavily dominated by men at that time. In that respect, she was definitely ahead of her time.
