Relation: Long-time family friend from Youbou

Just learned of Marlene’s passing and am so very sorry to lose such a vital part of Youbou’s spirit. I have many memories of her and times spent at their house on Cypress –especially sledding and tubing down that long driveway in the winter. Marlene was always so full of life!
