Marlene Ann Hartmann passed away on January 9, 2014, of breast cancer. She was born to the late Elsie and Milton Hartmann on April 1, 1947, in Red Bud, Illinois. Ms Hartmann graduated from Barnes School of Nursing in 1968 where she was later recognized as a distinguished alumnus. Ms Hartmann earned her Master of Science in Nursing degree from Saint Louis University and was a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society for Nursing. She was a dynamic nursing leader in the St. Louis community, rising from the ranks of staff nurse and head nurse to Vice President of Nursing at Barnes Jewish Hospital from 1980 to 2001. Ms Hartmann also served as a Senior Vice President for the BJC Health System. She was an active member of the Barnes-Jewish Nursing Alumni Association and a member of the Board of Directors for the Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College. Marlene had a particular gift for numbers, which she applied to the study of her beloved Cardinals, currency trading (after her nursing career), poker and other card games. She was a voracious reader and much loved by her friends and family for her dry wit and intellect.
