Marlene Joyce (Brehm) Sanderson

Marlene Joyce (Brehm) Sanderson, age 80, of Camp Hill, and formerly of Carlisle, was reunited with her family in Heaven on Wednesday, July 31, 2019.  Born December 23, 1938, in Carlisle, she was the daughter of the late Lee B. Brehm and Geraldine E. (Gleim) Brinkley.

Marlene was a 1956 graduate of Carlisle High School and she retired from the Naval Inventory Control Point after a long federal career.

She enjoyed shopping excursions, going to the beach, and being surrounded by her pets.  Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandsons.

Marlene is survived by her two daughters: Kimberly (Wolfe) Dolan of Mechanicsburg and Joy (Sanderson) Everts of Enola; her two grandsons: Connor and Quinn Dolan, both of Salt Lake City, Utah; and her one niece.  She is preceded in death by one sister, Joanne Y. Koztmoyer.

Marlene’s family will be remembering her life privately.

Contributions in celebration of Marlene’s life can be made to The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Pennsylvania Chapter or to the Humane Society of the Harrisburg Area.
