Marlene passed away peacefully in her home on June 11, 2023.
Survived by Mark Stewart, the love of her life for the last 20 years. Beloved Mother of Richard Gasko (Cheryl) and Michael Manzelli (Katie).
Marlene was an art enthusiast. She devoted nearly 40 years of her life to Macy’s Department Store where she loved working, managing, marketing and creating advertisements for their art department.
If you knew Marlene, you also knew she loved to shop – especially those sample sales.
Her hobbies included traveling, shopping, sharing meals with friends, playing cards and, of course, any and all things art related.
Marlene was a devoted friend. She loved her friends dearly and loved doing life with them.
She met many folks along her journey of life, however two of her closest gal pals were near and dear to her heart. Jeanine and Diane were like sisters to Marlene. They enjoyed shopping, trying new restaurants and loved playing cards together.
Marlene was kind, generous, and full of spirit. We will all miss her and her gorgeous smile and cherish our memories of our time spent with her.
