I only ever knew Marlene as "Mrs. Andrews", but in the best way. She read stories to us in elementary school and I was lucky enough to cross paths with her again when she moved to Woodbury Senior High. She was beyond tolerant of someone like me, the disrupting type, encouraging the good things I did while giving the bad a "tsk - tsk". I was also her paperboy for quite a few year, living just a few doors down the street. Such a lovely person - always with a smile and never did she seem to be anything but happy to see you. I'm sad to hear she has passed on but grateful to have known her.

When I met Marnie, Kathy’s Mom, for the first time, my thoughts were...Wow, what a fun loving lady with a big smile & a bigger hug to give me! She made me feel so welcome.
I was Kathy’s roommate at WSU for 4 years, so when Kathy’s parents visited, I was treated like another daughter. Marnie was so full of life and so very POSITIVE, Her smiles were contagious & it was fun to laugh together.
Marnie, you were Kathy’s best friend in life & you will be her forever angel in heaven. Please keep watch over Kathy, Dick, and her family; remembering to smile down at them from heaven. Peace and love be with you all. Love ❤️ from Gail & Steve Scholl
