Additionally, she wanted to recognize her beloved nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews who meant the world to her. Because of her love for them she felt blessed with being a beloved Aunt.

Marlene was a 1956 graduate of Woodsfield High School.

Marlene's first employment opportunity was selling tickets and popcorn at the Monroe Theater.
She began working at the Woodsfield Savings & Loan in 1959. She became manager in 1980 and retired in 1989. Subsequently, she was employed as a Senior Quality Assurance Analyst at JP Morgan Chase in Westerville, Ohio until 1999.
Marlene began a concentrated effort pursuing art at the age of 70. She became actively involved with the Monroe Arts Council for over a decade where she served as president for four years. Under her leadership, the organization acquired the current building that houses the Monroe Arts & Visitors Center. Additionally, in 2016, she was instrumental in securing the Monroe Theater for the Monroe Arts Council.

She was a member of the Woodsfield Presbyterian Church for twenty years, serving as an Elder. She also served as Treasurer of Session for 5 years before returning to the Catholic Church.

She was a member of the Order of Eastern Star, serving as Chaplain for five years. She was also a member of the Monroe Singers and the Switzerland of Ohio Garden Club.

While Marlene will be remembered for her contributions to many organizations over her lifetime, her greatest legacy will be the time and love shared with those whose lives she touched, influenced and nurtured. During her final months she was blessed with time spent with so many of her family and friends, that she knew she was truly loved.

My sincere sympathy to Marlene's family especially Arthur and family. Wonderful memories of the 50's and later renewed through singing with Marlene in the Happy Hearts and WHS alumni choir. Her smile will never be forgotten, her unselfish love and friendship brought joy to everyone who knew and loved her.

To all of Marlene's Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. We are grateful for the time that Marlene spent on the Board of Trustees of the Monroe County Historical Society. She stepped up to the plate when we were transitioning from a hand written treasurer's book to a computer spread sheet. She has always succeeded in embracing new technology while at the same time keeping her artistic flair. A brick will be placed in the front walk at the museum in honor of your dear one.

To Dick Moose and all the rest of Marlene's Family,

At a time in my life when I literally had no place to go, you took me in like a member of your family and rented me the beautiful Moose Log Cabin for the last several years. You have been my best of friends ever since. If there is anything I can do to help you through this time of grief and beyond please just let me know.

I will greatly miss and have missed my dear friend Marlene who has shared many great events, painting sessions and travels with me. Her support of the fine arts in Monroe County was valuable and significant. I intend to continue her legacy in support of Monroe Arts Council.
We worked through many issues over 9 years and never had a problem we couldn't help each other with. I believe we had a mutual admiration for each other and my life is richer because God blessed my life with her!
