Obituary of Marlene Mary Ann Pretula

With extreme sadness the family of the late Marlene Pretula of Spruce Grove, Ab (formally Canora, Sk) announce her untimely passing May 5,2023 at the Westview Hospital, Stony Plain, Ab at the age of 72 years. 

Marlene was very proud of her Health Care Aide degree where she spent caring and cooking at the Gateway Lodge in Canora for several years. Her flowers and gardening skills brought a lot of visitors and residents to her yard.

Marlene always had a vibrant smile and an incredibly young at heart spirit. Her smile was infectious even when life threw her obstacles. Her sense of humour was unmatched. She had an incredible kind soul and a giving heart.

Marlene was predeceased by her parents Nick and Sophie, husband Richard and brother Nick. She leaves cherished memories for her daughters Terri (Darren); Janet “her biggest fan” (Chad) ; brother Merv ; her grandchildren Brandon (Shaley); Kaidence, Bailey and Jaylyn. Along with her great grandchildren Brinley, Paisley and Rylan. 

Marlene will be incredibly missed by all of her family and who knew her kind soul.
