Marlene June Schultz Brough crossed to the other side of the veil on October 18, 2017 at her home of 68 years. She was born on September 5th, 1931 to Clarence William Schultz and Elsie Verrol Birdzell. She was born in Salmon, Idaho and then moved to Wells, Nevada after her father died in 1939. She graduated from Wells High school and then married Ferris Toone Brough on June 6th, 1949. They had three children: David Lavar (Katheryn), Wilde Ferris (Sherry), and Dorian Verrol (Stephen) Boyer.
She served faithfully in many capacities in the LDS church including Relief Society, Young Women, and Primary. She also served as a leader in the community 4-H for years in support of her children and others in the community. She loved to serve others and always put others’ comfort above her own. She dedicated herself to providing care for a dear friend, Ula May Vandiver, for an extended amount of time in her home. Above everything else her family was first and foremost. She showed pure unconditional love to those around her and was a place of refuge for several friends and family. She helped on the ranch in many capacities including doing laundry for the working crew and cooking a full spread of food for anyone and everyone who came to her door. She loved animals and always felt compassion for the lost and weak. She came from a long line of great cooks and showed her love for her family by cooking delicious food for them.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years and her one full brother, Willard Schultz and two half-brothers, Jan Tibbitts and Tim Tibbitts and 2 great grandchildren. She is survived by her 3 children, 14 grandchildren, and 28 great grandchildren.
The family would like to thank Genesis Home Health, Heather Boyer, Teresa Bottroff, and many other caregivers that cared for our mother and grandmother. The funeral procession will begin at her home in Clover Valley at 11 on Saturday, October 21 and proceed to the South Clover Valley Cemetery with funeral beginning at 12. Meal following at the LDS church in Wells. In lieu of flowers please donate to a domestic violence center near you, a cause that was very dear to Marlene’s heart.
