Marlene Patricia

1940 - 2024

Marlene Cunningham, beloved wife of Neil, passed away peacefully after a lengthy battle with Dementia and Cancer on May 13, 2024, at the age of 84 in Drumheller.
Marlene was born on April 9, 1940, in Hanna, AB, and as a child, grew up in the Spondin area before her family made Hanna their home. It was here that she raised her beautiful daughter Sherri, and met and married her love, Neil. The couple eventually planted roots in Drumheller, making lifelong friends along the way. Her joy of life attributed to her affectionately being known as ‘Bubbles’. She enjoyed talking and visiting with family & friends, bowling, watching hockey & curling, playing cards & bingo, dancing & listening to old time country music, and anything purple. The last couple years of her life were spent in the Coalbanks Wing of the Drumheller Health Centre, being loved and spoiled by the staff.
Marlene is survived by her husband, Neil Cunningham of Drumheller, AB, daughter Sherri (Trevor) Sitter of Calgary, AB, sister Shirley (Jack) Peters of Calgary, AB, brother Terry (Teresa) Wolfert of Hillier, ON, and numerous nieces, nephews, and their families. Marlene was predeceased by her mother Theresa Wolfert, father Don Herold, step-father Jake Wolfert, and brother Don (Bud) Herold.
A graveside service will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at the Drumheller Municipal Cemetery (900 S Railway Avenue, Drumheller, AB) with Funeral Director Sean Grande officiating. A celebration of life luncheon will follow at 12:00pm, on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at the Nacmine Community Hall (119 3rd Street, Nacmine, AB).
In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make memorial donations to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, Canadian Cancer Society, or a charitable organization of your choosing.
Marlene was a kind, happy soul like her mom, and will be dearly missed by all.
