Lurline Marx, age 84, passed away on November 5, 2020, after experiencing several lengthy health issues.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 66 years, her parents, and her sister.
Lurline is survived by her son, daughter, son-in-law, and adored grandchildren.
Lurline was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. As a teenager, she played piano and organ at churches in the Uptown area and along the river. She went off to college, but returned home after one semester to marry the love of her life. Through the years, Lurline sang in the choirs of two different churches; her favorite piece was Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus. She loved everything about Christmas and took great pleasure in the seasonal choir performance of The Messiah. She enjoyed baking and cooking, especially at holidays, and craft works, such as ceramics and pottery.
Lurline was friendly, kind, and generous with all.
A private interment will be held at Greenwood Cemetery. Due to the pandemic, a memorial service will be held at a later time.
