She is predeceased by her father Albert; and siblings, Bryan, Albert, Clint, Bernice, Kenny, and Keith.


Marleen was the 7th born of 13 children. She grew up in Richer, Manitoba. She was quite the rebel in her childhood. She had a beautiful, contagious smile. She loved to spend time with her daughters and her grandchildren. She had a sense of humour like no one else, and she continued to crack jokes right to the end. 


The family expresses gratitude to Ethical Death Care, Dr. Blom and the team of nurses at Riverview Health Centre, and her Rapid Response home care nurses Gwen and Samantha.  


In Accordance with Marleen’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private service will be held. 


Marleen’s family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.

Marlene was a very special lady in my life when she was at her best. She was my step mom for 10 years and known to my bc children as MeMe. When we lost my brother very suddenly Marlene took it very hard and never seemed to fully recover. She was caring, funny and always there for everyone. This is the lady I chose to remember and celebrate. I did visit her in her last week and we had some good laughs. Rest easy Marlene and give my big bother a hug for me. We will meet again.

Marleen was my step mother. She went throu my toughest teenage years with me. I thank God every day that he put Marleen in my life. We both had the same monster in our life at that time and I know more times than not we survived for each other. I'm happy that we kept in touch from time to time throughout the years and we both knew we loved each other dearly. I'm really going to miss you Mommy Marta. You'll always have a huge part of my heart. Until we meet again. I love you❤️

Kelly, that is false. And if you want to know why he wasn't included, you can talk to me directly. If anyone says anything else about this or talks shit about the rest of the family, I will just continue to have your ignorant ass comments removed. This page is for honouring my mother, not Fred. Who is being disrespectful here?

I agree with you uncle Moose.

Freddie has been there for aunty Marlene for so many years.

I know she is at peace now

I never had the pleasure of meeting Marleen, but I know how loved she was by her daughter Lehanne. I hope she's at peace.
