Condolences for the family of “Lily Marlene Thorpe”

Condolence from Janis Nelson & Paul Nelson on November 10th, 2020 2:49 pm

Heartfelt condolences to Barry and family. Marnie and I go back to Public School in Woodbridge. Although we have not been in constant touch over the years we have connected on occasions here and there. When I think of Marn I see her smile and her quiet, gentle way. A loss for many and too soon. Thoughts and prayers to all at this very difficult time.

Dear Barry and family: Our deepest condolences to you and your family. I have bowled with Marlene for some time. I will miss her smile and great sense of humor. She always had a funny story to tell and her eyes twinkled with a good one. I hope that all the good memories will get you through this most difficult time.

Condolences to all of Marnie’s family. It has been many many years since we connected. Although I have thought of her often over the years. I remember fun times camping at Killbear Park & our CGIT camp experience & just hanging out at our homes & at WPS. AND I always remeber her pony tail. Cherish your memories…they are golden.

Condolence from Lorna Arnold on November 10th, 2020 8:29 pm

Barry and Family … Marlene has always been a fixture in the tapestry of my life. Like Darlene mentioned, CGIT, but I also remember dancing to American Bandstand in Hepburn’s living room and all the fun we had as innocent girls. She was a darling then, and remained a dear, sweet woman for the rest of her life. I can’t imagine the hole her passing will leave within her family … children, grandchildren, siblings and further. My heart is wrapped around all of you. Prayers for the strength to get through this most trying time. Most sincerely, Lorna (Gould) Arnold
