Marlene Rosine Kitchen was born on June 17, 1938 during the depression at Section 1, Township 12, Range 23 W2, near Truax, SK. Her proud parents were Elma (Pointer) and David Kitchen and she was the fifth child of nine siblings. Marlene attended Moorefield Country School near Truax, Sunshine Country School near Avonlea, and Avonlea School in Avonlea for grades 1 to 9. After grade nine she entered the work force as a waitress at the Town and Country Cafe in Gravelbourg, the Regent Cafe in Gravelbourg, the Avonlea Cafe in Avonlea and the Forest Lawn Hotel Cafe in Calgary, AB. In 1958 she met Louis Gall, who was renting some land near Osage from Tina Sivy. Louis and Marlene were married on June 17, 1961 at the Holy Trinity Church in Cedoux. They purchased Section 24-11-13 W2 in the R.M of Wellington #97 and began their family. Marlene and Louis had three children. Their first son, Wilfred was born on April. 28, 1962; second son, Dwight was born on September 10, 1965; and their only daughter, Karen was born on September 1, 1966. There were many good times and get togethers on the farm with family and friends. Marlene and Louis resided on the farm until October, 1991 when they retired and moved to their new residence at 64-10th Street in Weyburn while Dwight remained on the farm. Louis passed away on May 3, 1998. Marlene enjoyed gardening, auction sales, garage sales, visiting with family and friends, playing cards or games, watching movies and looking after her home. She undertook different pastimes over the years, such as selling Holiday Magic, Quazar, Amway, Avon and Tri-Chem painting. She was exceptionally gifted when using her hands to crochet afghans, baby items, doll clothes, doilies, etc., knit scarves, mitts, slippers and the making of various crafts and flower arrangements. She enjoyed collecting various items such as Avon Dolls, collector plates, collector spoons, bells, goose dishes and knick knacks, porcelain dolls, mini Barbie dolls, etc. Her love of flowers and yard ornaments showed in her yard. Marlene spent most of her time planting and caring for her garden and flower beds. Another passion of hers were the Thursday garage sale escapades with her sisters, Joyce and Sally, or daughter Karen. Marlene treated herself to the occasional bingo game or auction sale, but enjoyed quiet evenings at home watching movies or listening to music and crocheting. She relished visits from family members and friends and was always the perfect hostess. Her favorite holiday was Christmas, and she loved to shop for gifts, spending the whole year searching for presents to give her family and friends. She would rather give than receive, and had plenty for all. Marlene lived a quiet, simple life, but her greatest pleasure was her complete devotion to her children and grandchildren. She was an exceptional mother and and incredibly doting grandmother. She frequently had her grandchildren stay overnight to keep her company and deeply enjoyed any time they spent with her. All five grandchildren adored her. In May 1997 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, of which she was a fighter and a survivor. Marlene began having back pain in the summer of 1998. She was diagnosed with Osteoporosis and Arthritis that fall and struggled, but continued to fight and hide her pain. She never complained or asked "why me?" Her pain and suffering became more apparent as months passed and on July 27, 1999 she was diagnosed with bone cancer. By this time it had spread significantly and continued to grow. She posed a gallant fight and was the perfect patient, never gave up hope right until the end. She lost her courageous fight on September 5, 1999. To her we owe nothing short of total admiration and respect. She was the epitome of strength and endurance. Though God granted Marlene a short life and we feel cheated that she was taken from us so young, we must learn to be grateful and feel priviledged that she came along at all. The chances of having someone so unique and special to be a part of our lives is very small and for this we will be forever grateful. She had enough love in her heart to encompass everyone. Marlene was incredibly kind, generous, compassionate, forgiving, admirable, genuine, determined and pure of heart to the depths of her soul. Through all the adversities and trials in her life she continued to overflow with compassion and endearing qualities. All who knew her loved her. She will be dearly missed. Prayers were said Wednesday, September 8, at 7:00 p.m. from St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church, Weyburn. The funeral mass was held Thursday, September 9 at 2:00 p.m. from St. Vincent de Paul Roman Catholic Church, Weyburn, with Father Francis Hengen Celebrant.
