Marlene L. (Sadler) Weigle, 85, of Loysville passed from this earth and joined her Heavenly Father on January 3, 2021. Marlene was born at home on September 15, 1935 to the late Darwin and Barbara (Schmohl) Sadler of New Kingstown. She is survived by four children: Brian (Rachel) Weigle of Montana, Brad (Ann) Weigle of Bloomsburg, Brenda (Douglas) DiSante of Camp Hill, and Beth Weigle of Perry County and eleven grandchildren: Jarrett, Tanner, and Colton Weigle of Montana, Nichole Klein of Trevose, Steven, Brandon, Remington, Morgan, and Alexis Weigle of Bloomsburg, Devon DiSante of Camp Hill, and Shannon Rudy of Shermans Dale, three step grandchildren: Jeffrey and Lauren Skjoldal of Bloomsburg and Sheridan Oakes of Montana and fifteen great grandchildren. Marlene is also survived by two sisters: Darlene Stansfield of Carlisle and Deanna (Larry) Kostelac of Mechanicsburg, and two brothers, Ronald Sadler of Carlisle and Donald Sadler of Mechanicsburg.
Marlene retired from the Hemlock Girl Scout Council in 2000, where she was the Merchandise Sales Director for Harrisburg. She also worked for Linens and Things as an Assistant Manager for 10 years on Harrisburg Pike of Mechanicsburg. She was very social and active within her community, whether it was luncheons with her classmates or trips with the Red Hat Ladies Association. She may have had a trick or two up her sleeve while playing cards with her friends of the Sherman's Valley Apartments. Her spirit longed for Fun, Travel and Adventure. You could find Marlene with a visor on and the top down in her favorite convertible car chasing the sunshine on her way to the next yard sale. You could call her your Modern-Day, Thelma and Louise. When the sun wasn't shining you could find her with a hot glue gun putting together just about any craft she could dream up. She enjoyed going to craft shows as a vendor to share her many talents as well. She was known as such a beautiful, kind woman. There wasn't a single person around her that didn't catch her infectious laugh. Marlene enjoyed her career and community but lived for her family. When the children were young, she was "the cool mom." The kids and all their friends gravitated to her not only because she was the classroom mom, planned parties and went on field trips but mostly because of her nurturing, loving and caring demeanor. They knew she was a support system for them and they could trust she always had their best interest at heart. As the children started organized sports, you would find her in the bleachers cheering the children and grandchildren on to victory. Nothing made her happier than seeing her family succeed.
Funeral services for Marlene will be held In the newly renovated chapel of Nickel Lochstampfor Family Funeral Home on Saturday, January 9, 2021. The family requests that those attending wear blue in honor of Marlene since it was her favorite color. A Gathering of Friends and Family will begin at 11 AM and continue to 12 noon.
