    Marlene always made me feel special ❤️ Making blankets for my boys when they were babies and having kind words for me. She will be missed but I know she is happy reunited with Dennis.

    Ms. Marlene was my daughter’s bus driver for the last seven years. We loved her! She was kind and caring, and Bus 29 will definitely miss her.
