We will sure miss sweet Marlene. She was a precious member of our church and the Sojourners Sunday School Class. She will always be remembered for her kindhearted, thoughtful nature and the way she always made others feel loved. I know she is pain free today and full of joy in the presence of our Loving God. May this truth comfort us all as we adjust to life without her on this earth. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Love and Blessings,
Jenny Seawright

Tommy and Stephanie,
Thinking of you during this most difficult time and praying for your strength as you reflect on her precious memories.
I worked with Tommy at MBF for many years, He would always speak so highly of his dear wife. I remember Marlene in a special way; very kind, caring, and giving. She always shared her most delicious pound cake with us that only she could make!

Banes family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you as you face the difficult days ahead. Lean on each other and hold to the promise of God being with you each step of the way. We worked with Marlene at the shirt plant in Greenwood many years ago. We have been praying for her and now she is pain free. Treasure all the wonderful memories and hug each other tighter as you face the difficult days ahead. Prayers for all, Wayne and Dale Bagwell
