I first met Marlene when we took education classes in the 70s together at OU in Chillicothe. One week Marlene's family had camped out at Deer Creek SP near where I lived. So Marlene and I carpooled to our week of education classes. I enjoyed the time spent with Marlene.
As a new member of the Retired Teachers group I was impressed with Marlene's organizational skills when she served as President.
My sympathies and prayers to Marlene's family.

Her dad and my dad were classmates at Pickaway Township School. Around 1945 they started to farm together. Her family lived in Pickaway Twp., and my family lived in Wayne Twp. When we moved to town, maybe 1947, her family moved to the Wayne Twp. Home. As a child, going to her home was always fun and my first sleep over was with her. As an adult I saw her on occasion, the last time being at a 50 Plus Reunion. She was a lovely lady, and I liked her a lot.
