It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marlene on July 5, 2022 at the age of 68 in the comfort of her home. Loving wife of the late Jeffery Hipwell (2007). Beloved mother of Jenny Hipwell, Missy Jenkinson (Warren), and Matt Hipwell (Jill). Cherished Grandma of Lyla and Hazel. Survived by her mother Margaret Randall, her siblings the late Dave, Marilyn, Debbie and Donnie. She will be greatly missed by her dear friend Lesia Parr, extended family and many friends. Missy would like to express her gratitude to all the healthcare providers who helped take care of Marlene when she needed it most; especially Andrea, Sally & Stacey. Marlene was like a mother to everybody. She nurtured through her actions, not words. Marlene did so much for so many. Her absence will truly be felt by all.
Family will receive friends on Monday July 11th, 2022 from 11AM-1PM with a celebration of life at 1PM at Patrick J. Darte Funeral Chapel (Downtown), 39 Court St, St. Catharines. Online tributes may be shared at www.pjdartefh.ca.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
