Marlene Joyce (Clark) Chandler, age 87, passed away on October 24, 2020 in Greenwood, IN of natural causes.

Marlene was born in Ferndale, MI on January 30, 1933. Her parents were the late Victor E. Clark and Estella Clark (Holmes). She graduated from South Side High School in Fort Wayne, IN in 1951. On February 14th, 1953, Marlene married the love of her life, Joseph M. Chandler and they were married 65 years, until Joe’s death on February 18th, 2018. They lived in Fort Wayne for 54 years before moving to the Indianapolis area in November 2017.

Marlene (also fondly known as Mar, Mart or Marty) was an accomplished interior designer much of her adult life, winning Best Overall Home award in the Fort Wayne Parade of Homes in 1998. An avid artist, Marlene enjoyed painting, pottery, and making multimedia greeting cards for friends and family, expressing her abiding love through her art work. She recognized beauty all around her and was constantly creating and cultivating it in her world. She graced the lives of everyone who was blessed to have known her. Marlene and Joe spent their leisure time with their grandchildren, creating beauty, camping, and traveling, in the US as well as abroad.

Marlene’s spirit lives on in her children, Tracy (Kristen) of Indianapolis, Scott (Marien) of Chandler, AZ, and Darcy Milner of Indianapolis, her grandchildren, Victor, Carmen, Hannah, Logan, Garrett, Joe, and Carly, and her sister, Beverley Owens of Harrisville, MI. and other family and friends.

A memorial service will be held at a later date with details posted on the FairHaven Funeral Home website, www.fairhavenfortwayne.com.
