Meyer Hospice House in Palm Coast, Florida, after a courageous 4-year battle with esophageal cancer. Marlene was born on July 28, 1958 at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pa. She was the second daughter of Dolores (Babyok) and the late Eugene Vlasic. After graduating from Ambridge High School, Marlene moved to Daytona Beach to escape the cold winters of Pennsylvania. As a single mother raising a young daughter, she put herself through school at the Daytona Beach Community College receiving an Associate Degree as a Coding Specialist. In 1993 she secured a position at Peninsula Medical Center, currently Advent Health, where she was employed until her death. A lover of music and pop culture, Marlene enjoyed live concerts and fan conventions. Attending several as VIP allowed her to meet and greet a few of her favorites including Guns & Roses, Weird Al Yankovic and the stars of television's X-Files. Marlene's big dream was to visit Croatia this summer. Sadly, she was unable to do so due to the rapid progression of her cancer. In addition to her mother, Marlene is survived by her daughter, Amanda; a granddaughter, Chloe; one brother, James (Deb) Vlasic, Eden Prairie, Minn.; two sisters, Rebecca (Paul) Wargo, Ambridge, Pa., and Rachel (Tom) Micija, Conway, Pa.; three nephews, Brandon and Bradley Wargo, and Jonathan Vlasic and three nieces, Audra Wargo, Katie Vlasic and Annie Micija.
