Memories of Marlene Brewer Reetz Pauli
\r\nIn Memory of\r\nMarlene H. \r\nPauli\r\nObituary for Marlene Pauli\r\n\r\n\r\nMarlene Brewer Reetz Pauli, resident of Fraser, died peacefully surrounded by the love of her family on February 18, 2013. She was 65 years of age. \r\n\r\nMarlene had many interests as well as friends and family members. She was a staunch Republican who loved listening to Rush Limbaugh on the radio and watch Judge Judy on TV. Marlene loved Ice Road Truckers and was disappointed when it was no longer on. She has a strong work ethic which she demonstrated at every job opportunity she had, from secretarial to sales to real estate. Marlene loved to travel and would go to visit her brother Norm’s condo in FL yearly, most often taking her long time friends Louise and Jim along. Marlene loved it there and talked about how nice it would be to retire to Florida away from the cold and snow. Marlene was lucky enough to recently go to Kentucky and met cousins she had never met and traveled with an old friend, Ron. Marlene had an astonishing knowledge of antique dolls and the most impressive doll collection and loved going to doll shows with her friend Anita. She loved movies and often went with friend Denise. Marlene loved Art Deco and her home reflected that, but was also warm and inviting as was Marlene. Marlene had close friends that she loved dearly and treasured and so she made sure she kept in touch with them and was there if they ever needed her. Marlene also loved her garage and estate sales. Every Friday, weather permitting, which it almost always did, Marlene’s friend Dianne would pick her up and they would head out looking for treasures. When Marlene ‘s friend Kathryn was in town the three of them went and when Kathryn was in Florida with Marlene they even went there, she loved her sales. Marlene loved her kitties, Sidney and Jessica; they were her constant companions and have found a good home with her nice Aimee. She also loved her pappion, Patty, the tiniest sweetest little dog who is now part of happy pack at her brother Doug and sister in law Sharon’s house. Marlene loved life and enjoyed all of it, but most of all she loved her family, son Jeff, his fiancé’ Lucie, her son Nick, her brothers Norm and Doug and sister in law Sharon, all her many nieces and nephew and even her ex-husband, Jeff’s dad, Gene. She desperately missed her loving grandparents and her mother that passed away only six months ago and took care of all of them. Even though her mother had advanced dementia, Marlene made sure she had the care needed to keep her in her home until the very end. And thanks to her family and friends, Marlene was able to do the same. But Marlene always said the happiest days of her life were being Jeff’s mom. Jeff made her even happier when he met Lucie and her son Nick and the day he came to tell her they were getting married. Marlene was over the moon. All she had ever wanted was for Jeff to be happy, find his true love and live a long happy life. When Marlene was diagnosed with peritoneal cancer and told she may only have three month to live, her only concern was for her son. She never feared death, she feared pain; but to the end, she was a courageous, dignified, gratuitous and still worried about everyone else. Someone once said that their mother had shown them how to die; Marlene showed us that and how to live and would want us to do just that. No memorials, no long lasting tears, just a celebration of her life. \r\n
