Marlene Lois Rembold was born on Friday, April 15, 1949 at Scotland, South Dakota to Richard and Lois (Newlon) Rembold. She graduated from Scotland High School in 1967. Following high school, she attended Concordia College in St. Paul, Minnesota. She worked for the Veteran’s Administration in St. Paul, Honolulu, Reno, and Sioux Falls. She later returned to Scotland to help her aging parents, but continued to work for the VA by working online and traveling to Sioux Falls. Marlene was a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church and the Scotland Historical Society. She loved her birds and dogs. She enjoyed crafts, furniture refinishing, needlework and always decorated her house for the holidays. Due to poor health, she entered the Yankton Care Center, later returning home for a short time. She was a resident at the Good Samaritan Society of Scotland, Autumn Winds in Yankton, and the Wakonda Heritage Manor. Marlene went to be with her Lord on Saturday, November 17, 2012 at the Lewis and Clark Specialty Hospital in Yankton at the age of 63 years,  7 months, and 2 days.
Marlene is survived by four sisters and one brother: Wanda Dolejsi of Yankton, Roger (Rosa) Rembold of Kaneohe, Hawaii, Joyce Brunken of Yankton, Lillian (Elden) Helms of Creighton, Joan Rembold and Mark Araiza of Honolulu, Hawaii; many nieces and nephews; and numerous great-nieces and great-nephews. She was a godmother to Melissa (Dolejsi) Plath, Eli Helms and Michelle (Rembold) Bly.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Lois Rembold, sister Barbara Rembold in infancy, brother-in-law Larry Dolejsi, and niece Carrie Russaw.

How sad that this is the passing of a truly remarkable family from Scotland. That house most recently was always called the Marlene Rembold house--but no more. I will always cherish visiting with the Rembold girls at the funeral home. Oh, did we laugh as we shared stories. Thanks for all the hours of babysitting you did for our kids. Wanda--I am sorry did not get to see you. Best wishes.

My deepest sympathy to the family, I am a cousin of all of you. I never got to know any of you but knew Rusty and Lois and remember them fondly. My Dad was Norman (Popeye) Newlon and he was a 1st cousin to Lois and my Grandma was Susie Newlon. I saw Marlene a few years ago at my Aunt and Uncle Bus and Dell's farm auction and she was in a wheel chair then. I read Marlene's death notice in the Mitchell paper. There are only 2 of my Dad's family left. My aunt Rose Newlon in Denver and my Aunt Sr. Carol Ann Newlon O.S F. in Millwaukee. I will let them know of Marlene's passing. May God be with all of you at this sad time.
