For many years she baked and decorated wedding cakes with all their fancy trimmings. She also worked at Montgomery Ward, IRS, and the Senior Citizen Lunch Program which she absolutely loved. She put her whole heart and soul into helping these friends she loved, and they loved her.
Marlene enjoyed being with her family, planning family picnics, and organizing family parties. She never forgot a birthday and enjoyed sending cards of love to those who were in her thoughts.
