I'm so sorry to learn of Marlene's passing. She was a wonderful friend all through elementary school at Stephen Bull and junior high at Franklin. Marlene's mother was our Brownie and Girl Scout leader. She, the late Susan Perugini and I used to take turns at each others' homes on Friday nights, where we eagerly watched the latest episode of 77 Sunset Strip. Yes, we all  had mad crushes on Kookie. The three of us walked together to Park High for the first day of our high school classes, joined along the way by Janice Kirby. 

Marlene and I drifted apart during high school and didn't see each other again until our 50th reunion. She thought I wouldn't recognize, but I intantly did, and we had a wonderful talk about riding bikes as kids, the playgrounds where we played and all the good times we had.

RIP Marlene. My sympathies are with your family. I know that you were greatly loved. If you see Susan in the great beyond, please tell her that Pat says hi.
