Obituary of Marlene A Blake

Please share a memory of Marlene to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Marlene A. Blake, 88, longtime Mundelein resident, passed away peacefully on May 11, 2022 surrounded by family. Marlene was the proud mother of 7 and earned her nickname as the “Neighborhood Mom” of High St in Mundelein. She handled the chaos of a full house with a constant calming demeanor.

She was preceded in death by her husband James, her sister Janet Fistel and her niece Lisa Brunette and nephew Leslie Fistel.
