Marlene was selfless, positive and loving. She loved her family, her pets, her garden, and feeding crowds of people. She was known by all as a terrific cook and exceptional crib player. The family would like to give special thanks to Gurbir Martin and the staff of Tyne Valley Heath Center, the staff of Ambulatory Care at PCH, staff of Home Care Summerside, and the staff at O’Leary Community Hospital.

In the late 1980's, a group of citizens from the East Prince area met to discuss the possibility of establishing a co-operative funeral home. Two such homes were operating successfully in Prince County, namely the West Prince Funeral Home in Palmer Road and the Evangeline Funeral Home in Urbainville. As a result, on January 24th, 1989, the East Prince Funeral Co-operative Ltd. was formed.
