Marlene Caroline Hannah (Fessler) October 27, 1935 ~ February 16, 2018

Surrounded by her family, Marlene passed peacefully to God’s arms at the Moose Mountain Lodge in Carlyle Saskatchewan, at the age of 82. Marlene is predeceased by her parents, John and Vera Fessler, sisters, Thelma (Cliff) Elder, Addie (Bob) Ferguson, Hazel (Ken) Coward and her brother, Bill (Phyllis) Fessler. She is lovingly remembered by her devoted husband, Dale Hannah; son, Richard (Denise), Rick’s daughter, Cara Leigh (Rob) and their children, Chase and Paige and Denise’s son, Dontae; daughter, Heather (James) and their daughter, Hannah as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and friends. Marlene grew up in Drinkwater, Saskatchewan surrounded by family and wheat fields. She met the love of her life Dale, while hanging over the hockey boards at the ice rink in the nearby town of Roleau, Saskatchewan. They were married February 19, 1955. Marlene was a stay at home Mom who prided herself on keeping a clean house, cooking and looking after her family. Marlene excelled in this role, and was a wonderful loving wife, mother and grandma. Marlene and Dale enjoyed many happy summers at White Bear Lake, where they hosted and attended numerous celebrations, golf tournaments, and bon fires. Marlene loved to have fun, play the piano and sing. For many years Marlene and Dale spent winters in Texas and Arizona enjoying their retirement. Their prayers were answered when granddaughter Hannah (McCutchon) was born - finally grandparents! Dressing up, singing, going to the beach, boat rides and parades were shared during this chapter of life. In Marlene’s last years, she resided at Moose Mountain Lodge where she received the best of care. Our family is so grateful to all the staff there. Thank you for all your kindness. The Memorial Service for Marlene will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. from Carlyle United Church, Carlyle, Saskatchewan with Sandy Dalziel and Jaclyn Evaschesen officiating. Lunch and fellowship will follow at the church. Interment will take place at a later date in Southerland Cemetery, Carlyle, Saskatchewan. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Memory of Marlene to: Carlyle United Church at 202 2nd St. W.
