Marlene was born to Clifford and Laura Faux and grew up in the Roseisle area. She married Dennis Doerksen of Stephenfield on September 18, 1964 and they lived in Winnipeg and Burnaby, BC before settling back at the family farm in 1973. They enjoyed farm life for many years.
Marlene suffered a stroke in 2010 and they moved to Carman shortly after.
Marlene was a kind and caring person and cherished her family and was delighted with the arrival of four grandchildren. Marlene battled illness for many years and proved to be a tough lady who would fight through all the rough spots life threw at her. She will be missed greatly and never forgotten.
Our deepest thanks and gratitude to the team at the Boundary Trails Health Centre for the care Marlene received over the last few weeks.
Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at the Carman United Church. Family interment will be held in the Riverside Cemetery, Graysville.
