Marlene Friesen

    Funeral services for Miss Marlene M. Friesen, 37, of Nampa, who died at her home on Tuesday, June 5, 1990, will be conducted at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, June 9, at the Nampa First Church of the Nazarene, 600 15th Ave. S., with the Rev. Jerry White, pastor of the church, officiating.  Burial will follow in the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell.  Services are under the direction of the Alsip Funeral Chapel.
    Miss Friesen was born Sept. 17, 1952, at Rosthern, Saskatchewan, Canada.  She was reared and educated in Kirkland, Wash., until she was a sophomore in high school.  She then moved to Canada where she graduated from high school.  She attended Bible College for two years in Canada and the University of British Columbia for three years.  She graduated from Northwest Nazarene College in 1979.  For the past 11 years she had taught at Nampa Christian Schools where she was loved by all her students, staff and teachers.  She was a member of the Nampa First Church of the Nazarene.
    Marlene was a genuine person.  Her laughter and energy were ever present to those around her.  Although someone has tried to silence her they never will, for her love for Jesus shines on in the hearts and lives of those she has touched.
    Marlene is survived by her mother, Lorayne A. Friesen, Seattle, Wash.; her father, Buno C. Friesen, Federal Way, Wash.; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Dennis and Loris Friesen, Kent, Wash., and John and Veronica Friesen, Pearl City, Hawaii; two sisters and a brother-in-law, Alice Fay Friesen, a student at NNC, and Della and Jim Rogers, Missoula, Mont.; and seven nieces and nephews.
    The family would like friends to know that there will be an interpreter for the hearing impaired at the services.
    Friends may call at the Alsip Funeral Chapel today until 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
    The family suggests memorials be given to the Marlene Friesen Memorial Fund at Nampa Christian Schools, P.O. Box G, Nampa 83653; or flowers may be sent.
