I was blessed to have known Marlene as a friend & business associate as BHS. Her smile would light up the room & her hand of friendship was always extended to those she met. Marlene had a gift for making others enjoy life!

My heart goes out to Kimberly and family. Marlene was a special member of our Brown Harris Stevens “family” for many years. I know if Marlene’s service were in Palm Beach you would see a lot of us there. And I don’t think I ever saw Marlene without a smile on her face – she was well loved.
