Marlena Ruth Bajema was born in Bozeman on Nov. 26, 1946, to Edith and Garrett Van Dyken. She died on April 23, 2008, in Chandler, Ariz.
The Guest Book is expired.
Prior to moving to Phoenix, Marlena lived for 16 years in Bellevue, Wash.
She is survived by her husband of 40 years, Robert; and two sons, Gregory and Michael (and Christina).
Marlena was a faithful daughter of the Lord Jesus, and followed in His footsteps, being a servant to all. She was a highly successful woman, whose achievements are measured in the lives she touched, not for her glory, but for the glory of her family, friends and her Savior, Jesus Christ. We love you, Marlena and Mom.
Services were held on Monday in Chandler, Ariz. She will be laid to rest at a Churchhill cemetery on Wed., Apr. 30.
