began her career in Nashwauk where she met Richard. They were married in
Nashwauk on January 5, 1957. Her teaching career ended teaching Special

granddaughter’s sporting events. She loved to golf, play cards and bingo, and had
a sweet tooth. She will be lovingly missed by her family, including sons; Jim of
Vista, CA, Jon, and daughter, Jill (David) Brownell. Her wittiness, love of golf,
and strength will be carried on through the lives of her grandchildren, Emily
(Brock) Freeman, Amy Brownell, Kylie Katalinich and with soon to be great-
grandchild, Baby Freeman. The family would like to thank Kathy Brownell and
Home Sweet Home for the wonderful care that was given to Marlene. Mass of
