Marlene was a very special lady in my life for the past 30 plus years. I had the honor of working with her at Theda Clark as a new nursing assistant and subsequently a RN. She was always a positive influence on us “kids” working with her and taught us more than she could ever realize. My family is blessed to have known her and been able to maintain a relationship with her after her retirement. It always brightened our day when we saw her at the theater.
Godspeed Marlene “Mother Morris.” You’ve earned your wings.

I just saw the wonderful tribute to Marlene on the news tonight. I have not been to the movies for a year, but I was always happy to see Marlene sitting in her chair to collect my ticket. She always wonderful to talk to. She would always comment about the movie you were seeing or if you asked he what she saw she would tell you. She was a wonderful person in the times I went to the movies. Sending you thought and prayers. She will be greatly missed at the movies.

We will always remember Marlene fondly from the movie theater and the local theater she attended in the Fox Valley area. She was always a joy to see with her kind smile and wave.

Marlene was such a treasure. I worked with her at Hollywood Cinema and always referred to her as my adoptive grandma. She always had a way to make me laugh and was such a kind, caring, amazing woman. I will always cherish the memories I have with her and all of the life lessons she taught me. Rest In Peace, Marlene!

What a sweet lady. I Always looked forward to seeing her friendly face -first Hollywood & then Valley Grand theaters. She would always give me her honest opinion of the movies. As a movie buff I thought it was such a wonderful opportunity for her to be able to work there. I will miss her. RIP.

I worked with Marlene at the Valley Grand theaters. She was a kind, funny, sweet lady, who would give you her honest feedback about any movie :) My son, Xavier, loved that she always remembered his name when we came in.
