Marlene was born August 13, 1946, in St. Cloud, Minnesota, the daughter of Kathryn (Nohner-Schmit) and Louis Lezer. She graduated from St. Cloud Technical High School in 1964. Marlene married her high school sweetheart, Roger A. Chirhart, on July 17, 1965, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in St. Cloud. They happily spent the next 56 years together. She and Roger had three children, Michelle, and twins, Michael and Mark. She was the best mother who stayed home to raise her three children and continued taking care of them with her motherly advice until they reached their fifties. After raising her children, she worked at the St. Cloud Hospital in the Laundry Department for 22 years, retiring in 2003. One of the biggest joys in her life was the birth of her only granddaughter, Allison, who she doted on and was so proud of.  Marlene was a devoted Elvis fan, loved to read, and loved a good glass of wine.

Marlene is survived by her husband, Roger; daughter, Michelle (Jerry Morford) Chirhart of St. Cloud; sons, Michael of Sartell and Mark of Minnetonka; granddaughter, Allison Stein; brothers, Jerry (Carol) Schmit of Ramsey; sisters, Betty Gaida of Holdingford and Gloria (Don) Lenzen of St. Cloud.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Daniel Schmit, Dennis Schmit, and William Schmit.

Mark, Despite our degrees, I find no words to express the sorrow I feel for your loss. A kind and gentle woman, I remember your mom’s smile as she listened and swayed to Elvis in the kitchen. She was infinitely proud of each of you, a truly good person to have had an opportunity to meet.

I remember her after seeing her picture of living 3 houses away on 3rd st. Seeing her n others that attended the wake. It brought me back to a young kid again, n the fish frys.Allison had a heart warming letter about her grandma n the times about being with her grandma. I also remember that parking lot across from their house. I could go on n on about her, n her husband, her children, n her wonderful granddaughter. Again, I am so, so sorry for your loss. May she Rest In Peace, n for your hearts be healed!!!!

I will always remember that Marlene was my procession partner when we made our 1st Holy Communion at St. Anthony’s. I think we were in front because we were both short….I also remember cutting thru a corn field & passing by quarries to get to the Schmit house to play with Marlene. That was so long ago!
