FULLER , Marlene (Scott) Marlene Fuller (Scott) was born January 9, 1933 in Central City, Nebraska and passed away in Phoenix, Arizona on November 14, 2017 at the age of 84. The Scott family moved to Sargent, Nebraska shortly after Marlene’s birth where her father, Dr. Roy Scott, established his dental practice. Marlene was united in marriage to Ronald R. Fuller on February 25, 1952 in Sargent, Nebraska. The couple resided in Sargent for a few years raising their son, Stephen. Later, the Fuller family moved to a farm house west of Burwell, Nebraska. After relocating to the farm, three girls were born, Debi, Monica and Lisa. Marlene enjoyed spending time with her family and serving her community. She was an active member of Kent Korner Klub, PEO, Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Burwell, Benevolent Patriotic Order of Does in Ord and several local bridge clubs. She was a leader of local 4-H Clubs and a volunteer for Loup County School Boosters. Marlene liked serving, reading, gardening, sewing and card games of any kind. She actively engaged in livestock and farming with her husband, Ron. After Ron’s death in 1982, Marlene worked as a teller at the Bank of Taylor and continued to farm. She loved dealing with fiscal matters and treasured the camaraderie of her co-workers at the bank. In 1984, Marlene had the opportunity to move to the land of sunshine, Phoenix, Arizona. There in Phoenix, Marlene quickly discovered the thrill of duplicate bridge and the excitement of travel. Marlene lived her life as a progressive farmer and steward of the land until her death. Marlene was a devoted mother and wonderful grandmother. She always made time for her daughters, grandchildren and visits with friends and neighbors. Her quick wit, wise intellect and great sense of humor will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Marlene is survived by three daughters, Debi and Jim Saunders of Paso Robles, California, Monica and Larry Storjohann of Phoenix, Arizona and Lisa Fuller Salcido of Phoenix, Arizona. Five grandchildren, Jimmy Saunders, Scott Saunders, Lindsay Salcido, Danielle Salcido and Haley Salcido. Marlene was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Ronald, son, Stephen and two infants, Michael and Susan. Contribution in Marlene’s honor may be made to the Hospice of the Valley, 1510 E.
