Marlene Pearl Born was born to Foster and Dora West in Yakima, Washington on March 1, 1935 – the oldest of four children. She passed away at home on May 29, 2018, surrounded by loved ones.

In her early years, she grew up on the family dairy farm and was very active in 4-H and Future Homemakers of America.

Soon after marrying Glenn Born in 1957, she and Glenn volunteered for two years at Church World Service Center, New Windsor, Maryland where she designed clothing patterns for refugees.

Throughout her life, she created beautiful floral designs for churches and weddings, mostly from flowers she grew in her own garden. She was an excellent homemaker and a devoted wife and mother.

From 1979 to 1985, Marlene worked with husband Glenn and sister and brother-in-law, Dortha and Clyde Glover, in Born Glover Custom Cabinet Shop.

She was an active member of Peninsula Evangelical Friends Church for 50 years.
