Marlene Velda Puls (1931-2021)
It is with great sadness that we say our final goodbyes to Marlene Velda Puls, our wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Marlene was born on September 15, 1931 in Vancouver, BC and passed away October 23rd, 2021 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s.
Marlene was predeceased by her husband Lewis Puls, parents Charles & Velda Reelie and brothers Norman and Lorne Reelie. She is survived by her son Lewis Puls (Lesley), and daughters Debra Colvin (Paul), Diana Brisseau (Greg), Cheryl Bourgeau (Marvin). She was blessed with 10 grandchildren Daniel Colvin, Lewis Puls, Jennifer Brisseau, Jesse Puls, Bridget Colvin, Laura McEwan, Stefanie Puls, Alyss Bourgeau, Gregory Brisseau, and Katie Bourgeau-Hellings, 10 great grandchildren Emery Archibald, Sophie Chabot-Brisseau, Chloe Colvin, Van Archibald, Morgan McEwan, Connelly Puls, Dylan Colvin, Sullivan McEwan, Lukas Burton, Theodore Bourgeau-Hellings and 1 step great grandson Wylie Rankin. She will hold a special place in all our hearts.
Marlene loved her BINGO and enjoyed playing card games and scrabble with family and friends. She will also be remembered for her knitted baby shawls and booties, crocheted phentex slippers with pom poms, and her amazing petit point, needle point, and cross-stitch pictures. She was a great cook, baker, gardener, but above all, she adored her family.
Heartfelt thanks to Nicola Lodge Alouette Care Team for their love and support.
Cremation to take place at Maple Ridge Funeral Chapel. A private family gathering to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation in her name can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of British Columbia.
