Resident of Los Angeles, CA
Jan. 11, 1948 – Jan. 30, 2017
Marlene Sauer passed away on January 30, 2017 at the age of 69. She was the beloved mother of daughters Angie (Michael) Corritone, and Dana (Jonathan) Goldstein; grandmother of Robert and Joey Corritone, and Andrew and Micah Goldstein; sister of Steve Sauer; sister-in-law of Micki Sauer; aunt of Jonathan and Molly Sauer.
Marlene was born in Vienna, Austria. At two years old, she traveled to the United States for three weeks by boat, and through dire conditions, with her parents, Jennie and Joe Sauer and uncle Harry Braver, along with other WWII immigrants. Shortly after the family settled in Los Angeles, her brother Steve was born. She attended Wilshire Crest Elementary School, John Burroughs Jr. High, Los Angeles High School, UCLA, and eventually earned a law degree from Whittier College. She worked as an attorney in the entertainment industry for 20 years.
Marlene was known for her ability to be able to talk to anyone. She enjoyed listening to good music (John Denver and Andrea Boccelli), watching ice skating, being an advocate for the humane treatment of animals, searching for good bargains, and connecting with her temple community. She had a special appreciation for the Hawaiian islands and the Polynesian culture. She cared deeply for her family, especially her four grandsons, and she loved her cats. She will be deeply missed.
