Marlene took her schooling in Preeceville from Kindergarten to Grade 12. After high school she ventured off to Regina, where she spent many years working in the food service industry (McDonald’s and Hungarian Club).
In 2012, Marlene and Dennis decided to make a major change in their lives. They moved to Endeavour, where they became incredibly content, happy in their home and enjoying the friendships that make small town living so great. They loved feeding the deer and birds that would come to their feeders on a daily basis. They loved going for drives in the country and spending time at their hall at Lady Lake. Marlene loved watching the Saskatchewan Roughriders and her favorite hockey teams on tv.
Marlene soon began her new job as a caregiver at the Preeceville Personal Care Home, where she truly found her calling. She loved her work and the people she cared for and worked with. Serving others gave Marlene a sense of fulfillment that gave her life a new spark. This job was meant to be! She always took pleasure in sharing and giving. She was truly, “one in a million!” Marlene was so thankful for her many good friends who have been so loving, supportive and kind, especially in the past couple of months. She appreciated you so very much!
