Marlene Lillian Sawler

It is with great sadness that the family of Marlene Lillian Sawler announces her sudden passing on January 21, 2023, in the Victoria General Hospital after a brief and intense battle with cancer. Born February 4, 1953, she was the daughter of the late Roy and Beatrice Schofield.

Marlene was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion, Kings Branch No. 6, Kentville for many years and enjoyed spending her time participating in activities such as darts and bingo at the Meadowview Community Hall. Marlene was formerly employed at Great Valley Juices and Mic-Mac Poultry, she spent her later years caring for her family and relishing in time spent with all her grandchildren. Marlene was an avid knitter who spent countless hours making keepsakes that her family will forever cherish. Marlene was quick to lend a hand, a shoulder to cry on or give advice. She was admired for her honesty and never thought twice about calling a spade a spade. She was an incredible matriarch, leading her family through the ups and downs of life.
