Peacefully at the Woodstock Hospital on Saturday December 1, 2018. Marlene (nee May), of New Durham, in her 80th year. Beloved wife of the late John Lendvay (2008). Loving mother of David (Marlene), Diane (David) Schertzberg, and Darlene (Glenn) Aicken. Cherished grandmother of Alexis and Zoe Lendvay, Melissa (James) Gow, Ryan (Nicole) Schertzberg, Vanessa (Clayton) Shebec, and Gina and Carla Aicken. Great-grandmother of Lennix Schertzberg, Griffyn and Myra Gow. Dear sister of Gord and Paul (Elly) May. Sister-in-law of Durk Ypma, Tom Porchak, Frank (Carolyn) Lendvay, Julie (Medard) Herreman, Joe (Barb) Lendvay, and Phyllis Lendvay. Predeceased by her sister Carole Ypma, sisters-in-law Sharon May, Mary Porchak, Phyllis Lendvay and brother-in-law Steve Lendvay. Marlene will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, family and friends.

Born in St. Thomas, Marlene moved to New Durham after marrying her best friend John. Her greatest joy was her family but she found beauty in all living things. Marlene was a true farmer from her green thumb to her Brown Swiss cows. Always willing and able to help, she could bake chiffon cakes to driving tractors in the field. Everyone knew her red truck and endless stories of everyday life.

Friends will be received at the Keith Ovington Funeral Home, 134 King Street, Burford on Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will be held in the chapel on Saturday December 8, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Interment at the Norwich Gore Cemetery. As expressions of sympathy, donations in Marlene’s memory may be made to Canadian Diabetes, Canadian Red Cross or St. Joseph’s Parkwood Institute, London. Keith Ovington Funeral Home 519-449-1112.
