Marlene was predeceased by her grandson, Spencer Pritchard; aunt (mother), Mona Waldner; mother, Helen Erickson, and step father, Roy Burlog. Marlene was a strong woman who made the courageous choice to raise her four children on her own as a single parent in the early 70s. Marlene worked hard to provide for her children by working two jobs while still providing them the necessary skills to succeed which they are very proud and grateful for. Marlene was known for her compassionate demeanour which lead her to a career as an early childhood educator. Marlene worked as the director of the North Park Childcare Centre for over three decades and was known to the children there as their “daycare grandma”. She touched many young lives during her time there and that will never be forgotten.
