Helen Marlene Cline, 84, entered into eternal rest Monday, August 30, 2021, at her home in Lexington. Marlene, as she was known, was born December 4, 1936 in Perry, Ohio, to the late George, Jr. and Helen Kantor Wesney. She had most recently been a travel agent, helping vacationers book fully-staffed upscale villas in Jamaica, and she previously worked at J.C. Penney in fine jewelry and in the photography business. She enjoyed gardening and feeding the birds. Marlene loved her family. In order to keep her youngest grand-daughter Katie on the straight-and-narrow while shopping together, Marlene would remind her that they were “on a mission.” She made amazing cabbage rolls (a skill passed down through her Hungarian roots) and loved to treat her family to that favorite dish. She also enjoyed gathering her family at Mi Mexico for wonderful Mexican food and to hear the Mariachi band. She leaves precious memories with her three children, Karin Isaacs, husband William Gary, Cynthia Lea Riley, and Norman Lee Cline, Jr. (whom she affectionately called “Charlie Brown” due to how his luck usually ran), wife Denise; as well as six grandchildren, Leslie Isaacs, Kari Moody, Laura Beach, Jennifer Atkerson, Samantha Woods, and Kathryn Isaacs; and 10 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren. In addition, she leaves her childhood memories with two sisters, Nancy deVos of Florida and Priscilla Hoyle of Ohio. Her sweet dog Luna, who was her constant companion for the last seven years, misses her already. Besides her parents, Marlene was preceded in death by her eldest daughter Kyle Denise Isaacs, her sister Barbara Zwilling, and the father of her children, Norman Lee Cline. Her family will honor her with a Remembrance Memorial Service at 2:00 PM Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021 at the KCAL Old Time Radio Theater, 109 S. Main Street, Nicholasville. They will greet friends that day beginning at 1:00 PM. “If there ever comes a day where we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.” Hager & Cundiff values nothing more than the trust given to us to care for Marlene and her family.
