It is with great sadness that family announce the passing of Marlene Wall of Coaldale, Alberta at home on May 3rd, 2021 at the age of 72 years.
She is the loving mother of Paul (Kristi) Perchacz, and Karin (Colby) Wall, and is predeceased by her husband Kenneth Peter Wall (1996), her mother Lore Perchacz (2019), and her father Peter Perchacz (1963).
Marlene was the oldest of 5 children and is survived by her brothers; Alan and Charles, and her sisters; Doris and Carmen.
Marlene was born in Backnang, Germany on December 27th 1948. She and her family emigrated to Canada in 1956 and Marlene lived in several different places, including the Yukon, Hope, and Chilliwack BC, before settling permanently in Coaldale in 1973 with her husband Ken.
Marlene is remembered by those who knew her for her generosity, her humour, and her willingness to help others. She loved to make crochet blankets and other needlework crafts, of which she had a tremendous talent for. Marlene was also known for her baking, often sharing muffins or banana bread with her friends and those she knew in the community. She loved animals and there was never a time when her home was not a shelter for lost or abandoned cats.
Marlene will be dearly missed by those who knew her. The family is choosing to postpone a funeral until a later date.
