Marlaine KLEIN


Marlaine Klein passed peacefully on January 29th 2015, at the age of 66 at the Rimbey Hospital surrounded by her loved ones. She was born May 3, 1948 in Rimbey AB to Herman and Alice Odenbach. Raised in the Rimbey area, Marlaine married Ernest Simpson. Together they had two children, Cheri-Lynn and David. Later Marlaine met Bill Klein. Together they moved to Rocky Mountain House where they lived until it was time to move back to the homestead in Rimbey. Throughout her life, Marlaine had a great green thumb. She was so proud of her gardens and flower beds, which was rightfully so, they were beautiful. Marlaine was able to express her creativity in many different ways. She was an accomplished artist, and many hours were spent at her craft table. Her paintings and Christmas ornaments were marvelous. Marlaine loved being a Grandma. She loved having her family around her and at the farm. She would take each grandchild on their birthday for a special birthday shopping trip. She enjoyed spoiling them with love; and Grandma made sure that no one left the house without Grandmas raspberry jam. Marlaine leaves behind to mourn her passing, husband Bill, two children Cheri-Lynn (Ken) of Rocky Mountain House, David (Becky) of Red Deer; five grandchildren, Jaylene (Logan), Keanna, Keegan, Kaleb and Karter. She will also be deeply missed by her brother Ron and his wife Gina of Spruce Grove along with her nieces and nephew. Marlaine also has many special friends that will feel the loss left by her passing. Marlaine was predeceased by her parents Herman and Alice, her first husband Ernest and sister-in-law Lois. A Celebration of Life was held from the Rimbey United Church in Rimbey, Alberta on Thursday February 5, 2015 at 1:30 PM with Reverend Deborah Laing officiating. Cremation has taken place and Marlaine’s cremated remains will be placed in the Columbarium at West Haven Cemetery in Rimbey, Alberta at a later date.
