Obituary for Marleen Talone
She knew how to fend for herself as well as care for those around her. Perhaps it came from Marleen’s youth: she was one of eleven brothers and sisters. Her two sons were the reason for her existence, but if any of her siblings needed a hand she was always ready to help and her door was always open. Earlier years found Wheaton Glass Co. getting all the benefits from her hard work, but she left the area and went to Florida to be close to her Mom and sister, Colleen. While there she worked at Home Shopping Network as a customer service rep: Marleen dealt with the most difficult customers. Soon after solving their problems they’d be thanking her for her soothing ways. Marleen gave the perfect gifts, but it wasn’t by accident. All year she saved and planned for just the right purchases for her sons at Christmas; always the right clothes and the trendiest games and toys. In 2015 she retired, sold her house, packed up and came back to New Jersey to be with a son and get to know the grandchildren.
She is survived by sons, her caregivers, Stan Tarquinio (Lisa) of Swedesboro and John Tarquinio (Teresa) of Colorado, 5 grand children and a large extended family.
Come celebrate 63 feisty years Sunday from 2 p.m. at Daley Life Celebration Studio where the service will be at 3p.m.
