Marlene grew up in Jehovah Holiness Church where along with her siblings she sang on the SY Choir, the Berkeley District Youth Choir and traveled with the Berkeley District Adult Choir.

Along with her brothers, Marlene crafted the art of playing the drums. She was also seen pretty much everywhere she went to service carrying her tambourine. Marlene was also very good with graphic art. What ever kind of flyer you needed, she may fuss a little, but she would get it done. She also made sure everybody’s pictures were up to date.
