We are so sad to hear that Marlene has passed away. We have especially wonderful memories of Walt and Marlene as they attended so many of our GD get-togethers. Walt built a delightful caboose and lighthouse for us which we're proud to display on our back patio in the summer. Marlene, so soft-spoken and lovely; how she loved her girls, their spouses and children. Hopefully her love of gardening and of family will live on in your generations to come. Our deepest sympathy, Fondly Nancy and Bill Koerner
