    FROM THE SACRAMENTO BEE DATED 2 APR 2016:

    Marlene Antoinette Marshall (1938 - 2016) Obituary.
     USAF (Nurse Corps) December 2, 1938 - March 31, 2016 Marlene was born at home on a 
    farmhouse southeast of Howells, Nebraska on a cold December day. She wasn't weighed 
    for three days because her mother had to take her to the local meat market to be 
    weighed and it was fiercely cold in Nebraska that day. The fourth of seven children, 
    she attended a one room country school, taught by her cousin, and didn't have a 
    classmate until the seventh grade when she went to middle school in Howells. A bright 
    student, she begged her Mom and Dad to go to nursing school. Following graduation 
    from Creighton University, and a short time as a nurse in Dr. Pavelka's office, 
    Marlene joined the Air Force on a Buddy Enlistment along with two nursing 
    girlfriends. They enjoyed four consecutive assignments in Texas, California, Japan 
    and Texas. It was there she met the love of her life, her crazy man Richard. They 
    married after a brief courtship and were happily and romantically married for 43 
    years. Concurrent with her 25 years military service; including Travis, Mather, March 
    and Wilford Hall hospitals and 10 years at the 65th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron; 
    she worked as a registry nurse at Mercy, Sutter, Kaiser and Rideout hospitals. Some 
    of Marlene's proudest accomplishments include assignments to Tachikawa AB, Japan 
    during the Vietnam Conflict; Operation BABY LIFT; and Operation DESERT STORM. In her 
    civilian career, she proudly nursed to those in need from the Sacramento Aids 
    Foundation. She was loved and admired by all she met and with whom she worked. While 
    also an avid gardener, Marlene flourished with her knowledge of the Lord while in her 
    Bible Study groups. A diehard Nebraska Cornhusker and Kings fan, she watched college 
    sports and rooted with GREAT vigor. Family will be pallbearers in lieu of the Kings 
    players since she couldn't endure the Kings letting her down one last time. Lastly, 
    those reading this who own QVC stock are advised to dump it quickly, Marlene is no 
    longer ordering. Lt Col Marlene is survived by her adoring husband of nearly 43 years 
    Lt Col Richard; sons Jason of Clarksburg and Lt Col Adam (Sally) Marshall, 
    grandchildren Alina and Jesse of Ellicott City, MD; sisters Vlasta Kennebeck, Council 
    Bluff, IA; Betty Kubat, Crystal Lake, IL; Alice Virgl, Wahoo, NE; Bonita Hubers, 
    Highland, CA; brother Ronald (Barbara) Dostal, Howells, NE; preceded in death by 
    parents James and Otilia Dostal; brother James Eugene Dostal; in-laws Scud and Yvonne 
    Marshall. Services with full military honors will be held at Clarksburg Community 
    Church 52910 Netherlands Ave, Clarksburg, CA on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at 11:00 
    a.m., Bohemian Nebraska reception to follow at Marshall Ranch. Interment will be at 
    Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, 5810 Midway Road, Dixon, CA on Thursday at 2:30 
    p.m. In lieu of flowers, plant some flowers in your yard. Contributions may be made

    Club scholarship fund. River Cities Funeral Chapel.
