She was an unwavering and devoted Christian, whose unwavering faith was evident in her constant prayers and praises to God in every situation. Even in the face of immense adversity, such as the passing of her beloved husband in 2006, she remained a steadfast pillar of strength and resilience. She raised her three children single-handedly, providing them with unwavering love, support, and guidance. Her home was a sanctuary for anyone in need, and she never hesitated to provide food, shelter, and comfort to anyone in need. She was a woman of integrity and honesty, always speaking her mind without fear of consequences. She instilled in her children the importance of maintaining eye contact when speaking to others, and of treating everyone with respect and dignity, regardless of their station in life. Her knowledge of herbal remedies was legendary, and she brewed the perfect tea for any ailment one might have. Marlene spent her life serving her community as an auxiliary nurse until she migrated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in January of 2015.

Marlene was a woman of great faith, whose dedication to the Lord was a cornerstone of her life. Her wise, caring, and forgiving nature touched the lives of many, reflecting her deep devotion to her faith. She firmly believed and often shared the lesson that love for the Lord opens doors to endless possibilities. Marlene was a beacon of light, sharing the message of faith, hope, and love wherever she stepped foot.

The crowning glory of her life was her three children, who were a source of endless joy and pride for her. Marlene leaves behind not just the fond memories of love and laughter but a lasting legacy of kindness, generosity, wisdom, and unyielding love for the Lord. Throughout her life, she placed her trust and faith in God, and this unwavering trust remained with her until her final breath.
