Remembering Marlene Hruby … Marilyn Clough
Sadly, we mark the passing of Marlene Hruby on May 14, 2020. Details can be found through the Lima Family Santa Clara Mortuary on the internet (some details below). Marlene and her husband, Ron, were such valuable members of our chapter that it’s hard to know where to begin. Along with raising two sons and two daughters, they were active in many professional, educational, and community organizations. When younger, they hiked all over central California and supported local nature conservation activities. Marlene worked for Westinghouse as an administrative assistant for many years.
After retiring, Marlene was not only the editor of our Dispatch, she also edited another organization’s newsletter, for over a decade. She was president of our chapter for two years shortly after Ron’s death, and also served on our Tours and Nominating committees, among other chapter activities.
Marlene and Ron never missed a theatrical presentation in our area. What a performance by both of them! They will be missed by many in our community.

The funeral will be at NOON on Friday, June 5, at Mission City Memorial Park in Santa Clara. Flowers may be sent to Lima Family Mortuary by the afternoon prior preferred, or by 9 a.m. Friday. https://www.dignitymemorial.com/…/lima-family-santa-cl…/2461
Marlene’s grandson, Nicholas Xydes, is investigating a live broadcast for those not able to attend in person (likely to be Facebook live) as most members of her family do use Facebook.
