Marlene Acevedo, 76, of Blackfoot, Idaho passed away Friday, January 23, 2015 at her home.
Mary Marlene Stoll Coggins Acevedo was born July 28, 1938, to Kenneth W. Stoll and Bertha A Rounds Stoll in Rock Springs, Wyoming, just 7 minutes after her identical twin, Merna Arlene, was born.
Following her graduation from Mountain View High School in 1956, she attended Ricks College where she went through registered nurses training. She was in the last class to complete the three-year training through Idaho Falls LDS School of Nursing and graduated in 1959.

During her life, she worked as an RN in the Blackfoot Medical Clinic and Hospital.  She was the House Supervisor at Bingham Memorial Hospital and head of the OB/Gyn Department for many years.  She enjoyed her work and was an outstanding nurse.  It brought her  pleasure to help bring so many babies into this world.
