Marlene Ellis Glasson passed away October 5, 2021 after a lengthy battle with Dementia. She was born August 12, 1940 in Gregory, TX.
Marlene was a graduate of Gregory Portland High School and went on to receive an Associate’s degree from Del Mar College. In 1958, she married Norman Glasson and they had three children. She enjoyed church, her family, music, traveling, shopping and her flower garden. She loved Christmas traditions and when the family would gather at her home for food and presents. She got to run the show. Her Chicken N Dumplins and chocolate pies were the best. A true matriarch of her family, her infinite words of wisdom will be missed the most.
