    To Marlene's family, We were sad to hear that Marlene has passed away. We knew her mostly through her work and dedication to the Alberta Retired Teachers' Association. She was always friendly and cheerful and we enjoyed visiting with her when we had the occasion. Unfortunately we cannot attend her service since we will be away at that time. Our condolences to you. Paul and Myrna Lemay

We are sorry we didn't get to see her in the past year, but due to our own ailments, we just never got to visit. We will remember the good times we all had together. The Mielke family.

    I'm sending my thoughts and sincere condolences to the Reddekopp Family. Your mom and I met in the seventies and remained friends for many years. She was so gentle and soft spoken, we had many great conversations about our families, our children, and regular day to day living. She was a wonderful client, always bringing treats and cookies for all to share. Marlene will be joining the other Angels in Heaven, go rest high my friend! You will be missed.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Reddekopp was my grade one teacher. When I was in her class I had frozen my hands really bad while visiting a friend. During my time of healing, she always made sure my hands were being taken care of. To this day when they start getting cold I still remember her warming them up. She was a great inspiration to all of her students and we loved listening to her play the piano. Sincerely Derrick Kuzemchuk

    Mrs. Reddekopp was my teacher at Sexsmith St. Mary's in grade 1 and grade 6. While I have not seen her since these elementary school days, I have such incredibly fond memories of her and am sad to hear of her passing. School felt like a second home in this loving lady's classroom. She cared so much for her students and that has stayed with me after all these years. We love you, Mrs. Reddekopp, and thank you for all that you did for each and every one of your students. My thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones.

    Dear Reddekopp Family, What a sorrow to lose your Mom. She was such a special person who I've known since way back in the 1970s. We were neighbours first, then friends, then sisters in Royal Purple, and of course being the mother of my daughters best friend from kindergarten through high school. Treasure all your wonderful memories. Hugs...
