Evelyn Marlene Austin

August 5, 1938 — July 29, 2023

Marlene Evelyn Austin, a devoted and loving mother, wife, grandmother, and great-
grandmother, peacefully departed this earthly realm on July 29, 2023, at the age of 84, in
Marion, Ohio, USA. She was born on August 5, 1938, in the town of Galion, Ohio, USA.
She leaves behind her beloved husband, Richard Austin, with whom she shared cherished
memories. Marlene's legacy will be carried forward by her son, Darrell McCarthy and her
Stepsons, Richard Austin, Todd (Julie) Austin, Shad (Stephanie) Austin, and her Step-Daughters,
Mya Austin and Melissa Austin. Her grandchildren, Jessica Baisley and Robert McCarthy.
Marlene's great-grandchildren, Connor Baisley, Khyra McCarthy, Jaelen McCarthy, Trinity
McCarthy, Jordan McCarthy, and Haleigh McCarthy, honor her memory and carry on her spirit.
Marlene was preceded in death by her father, George Johnson, her mother, Margaret Johnson,
and her sister, Sandy Johnson. She also mourned the loss of her sons, Todd McCarthy and
Steven McCarthy, as well as her daughter-in-law, Lu Ann McCarthy.
Marlene will be remembered for her unwavering devotion to her family, her gentle nature, and
her compassion for all living creatures. Her presence will be profoundly missed by those
fortunate enough to have known her. We would like to thank Gentiva Hospice and Presidential
Post Acute for their kind care.
Let us gather in remembrance and pay tribute to the remarkable life of Marlene Evelyn Austin.
May her soul find eternal rest, and may her spirit continue to shine upon us all.

God looked around his garden- And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth- And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you -And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful -He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering -He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never – Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough – And the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids – And whispered, ‘Peace be thine’.
It broke our hearts to lose you – But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you – The day God called you home.
