Marlene (Mar) Katherine Faimon was born in Hastings Nebraska to Arnold & Martha (Menke) Faimon on November 18th 1962. Heaven gained an angel, a jokester, a loving aunt, great-aunt, a godmother, a sister and a one-of-a-kind friend on March 24th 2020.
Mar graduated high school from Lawrence Nebraska and went on to be a camera tech for several years for companies such as KHAS, KOLN and a station out of Sioux Falls, SD. She then moved back to Lawrence where she made it her permanent home. Mar worked as a Programs Director at the Little Blue NRD in Davenport, NE for 32 years, working on many conservation projects including the beautiful Liberty Cove near Lawrence.
Playing and coaching softball was her passion, where she influenced the lives of many, many girls. Mar was so full of life and would travel the entire state to support her “kids” in the different activities they did. It was not only her nieces & nephews she supported, it included all of the kids whose lives she touched. She was never indirect but always had everyone’s best interest at heart. Throughout her life Marlene met and became friends with so many people, who she treated as family. Those friendships and people meant the world to her.
Other things Mar really enjoyed in life were Husker football games, golf, gambling and fantasy football. She held positions on the town board and was very involved in her community. Mar loved photography and capturing your most cherished memories…the click of a camera will forever remind us of her and the wonderful, crazy, fun lady behind it!

Those celebrating her life are brothers Donny, Larry (Mary) of Lawrence and Rich (Karen) of Glenvil, nieces & nephews: Kristina, Kevin & Kimberly Faimon, Bridget (Moh) Malek, Bruce (Stephanie) Faimon, Brooke (Cliff) Mazour, Brenda (Kyle) Tonniges, 15 great nieces & nephews, her many, many friends & relatives and her loving feline Taz.
