Professionally Marlene worked as a Sales Associate for SuperX Drugs for thirty-two years where she formed friendships with many of the customers. She was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and a big supporter of the Hannibal Pirates. She had a love for life and could turn everyday into a holiday. She enjoyed watching cardinal birds and working on puzzles. Her favorite motto was "Believe".

Marlene was fond of family gatherings and anniversaries and was especially happy to plan and celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary just like it was their marriage day.
