PRICE - Marlene passed away on April 9, 2014.

She is survived by her husband, Pierre; her son Michael Pierre, daughter-in-law Holly Riedelbach, and her beloved grandchildren Harper Ruby (four) and Milo Pierre (one) of Austin, Texas; her sister, Phyllis Sillitoe and brother-in-law Jay; brother Stanley and his wife Linda; her sister Jolene Frandsen; her brother Tedd and his wife Janet; and sister-in-law Carol Frandsen as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Glenn and Irene, and her brother Kent.

Cremation and burial have already taken place.

One of Marlene's final requests was for her family to honor her strong, independent spirit by letting her speak for herself:

I was born in Price to Glenn and Irene White Frandsen. I grew up on the family farm in Carbon County with my siblings Phyllis, Stanley, Kent, Jolene and Tedd.

I married Pierre Carlson on April 10, 1965, in Ely, Nev. We have one son, Michael Pierre.

I was diagnosed with Leukemia in November 2007. It has been a long battle, but by now you know who came out the winner: BIG C.

Pierre and I traveled extensively in our RV for 45 years. After retiring, we did all the retiree stuff: Snowbirds in Arizona, traveling in and out of the United States, taking many cruise-ship adventures--including the Panama Canal. My favorite place was Alaska.

I want to thank my nephew Raymond, brother-in-law Merrill, aunts Colleen, Barbara, Rosalie, and Joyce for always checking on me and for their love, friendship and support.

I want to thank my sister Jolene for helping me check off items on my bucket list, and for staying with me during my last days on this earth.

I would like to thank Dr. Scott Samuelson, Toni, Stephanie, Tiffany, and the rest of the staff at Utah Cancer Specialists for helping me through the years and also allowing me to hang out in the infusion room. Also thanks to Barbara, Nicole and the rest of the staff at Good Shepard Hospice. .

It is time for me to start my next journey, which is to explore and travel the universe on my beautiful unicorn, Sparky.
