Marlene loved her children and grandchildren. She adored spending time with her children and grandchildren. She could be heard telling her daughter to leave my grandbabies here with me for the weekend. She loved plants and had a green thumb. She had a forest of plants in her home. One of her favorite pastimes was having great conversations with friends and family over a great meal and watching Nigerian movies. She could often be found at Golden Coral after church with family and friends. She was a very kindhearted and loving person, and never wanted to put her burdens on anyone.
On September 7, 2021, God called Marlene to take her rest and join her parents.
