Marlene H. Schreiber (nee Bound), 72, of Lorain, passed away Monday, March 8, 2021 at Mercy New Life Hospice, Lorain.

 

Marlene was born in Cleveland, OH on July 29, 1948, to Wayne and Helen (nee Stotts) Bound. In 1969, Marlene met and married Ade Schreiber. Together they had two sons, Kurt and Brian, and one daughter, Holly. In the 1970s, they began their family life in North Ridgeville, OH, and then moved to Amherst, OH in 1980 where they lived for the rest of their lives. Marlene and Ade remained married until Ade’s death in 2008.

 

Marlene had a successful career in bookkeeping that started in the 1980s working for her husband, Ade’s, real estate company, Home Mark Realty & Investments. In the late 1980s, she started working at Lorain County Community College in the controller’s office. In the early 1990s, she spent a short time working for ServPro in Elyria, OH. Then, in 1993, she accepted a position in the Controller’s Office at Oberlin College in Oberlin, OH. This position was the most rewarding experience of her career, and she stayed at Oberlin College until she retired in 2016.

 

Marlene had a deep passion for and devotion to God for over 40 years. She was an active member of many churches for the past 40 years and enjoyed participating in several church activities, such as prayer groups, sign language, and potlucks. She especially enjoyed teaching the children during Sunday morning services. Most of her closest friendships were with other members of the many churches she has belonged to over the years. 

 

Over the years, Marlene has enjoyed several creative hobbies that included cross-stitching and scrapbooking. She used to cross-stitch beautiful designs that she then would turn into pillows that she gave as gifts to family and friends. In the latter years of her life, she began scrapbooking and was working on memory books for her children and grandchildren until her health began to deteriorate.

 

Marlene loved to travel. She enjoyed several family vacations to Florida with her husband, sons, and daughter and the May and Mitnick families, with whom Marlene and her husband, Ade, had a deep friendship for over 50 years. Within the last several years of her life, Marlene has enjoyed vacations to Disney World, Myrtle Beach, and The Great Smoky Mountains.

 

Marlene’s greatest love was her children and grandchildren. She shared a unique relationship with each of her children and enjoyed each one separately and together.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Wayne and Helen, her brothers, Wayne, Gary, and Billy, her in-laws, Adolf and Elsa, and her husband, Ade. She is survived by her sons, Kurt (Deanna) and Brian (Christy), her daughter, Holly, her grandchildren, Sophia, MaKayla, Luke, and Amanda, her older sister, Sharon, her Goddaughter, Tiffany, her younger sisters, Deleen and Shawna, and her younger brothers, Jimmy, Raymond and Jeffrey, as well as several nieces and nephews.
