Marlene K. Stirnweis, age 88, passed away Mar 19, 2021.
Marlene was the beloved wife of Erwin A. J. Stirnweis; loving mother of the late Cameron, Jeffery, Shari, Sandra, and Virginia Stirnweis; and dear sister of the late Richard Schneider.
Marlene was very active at her church, St. Patrick Episcopal Church in Madison Heights. Not only in her attendance there but with the charities the church was involved with, such as the Crossroads Food Pantry. Over the years she was also involved with the Campfire Girls, Cub Scouts, and many other activities. Her caring and giving nature truly went before her, wherever she went. One of her great passions in life was to travel and experience the world around her. Marlene was blessed to have visited all seven continents, and loved every trip. More than anything, she enjoyed the simple pleasures of life, laughing, loving, and giving.
