Marlene Ferlemann

Marlene Ferlemann Marlene A. Ferlemann was received into the loving arms of Her Savior on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 surrounded by her family at Henry Mayo Hospital in Valencia, California.

Marlene was born November 28, 1932, in Wamego, Kansas to Clyde and Della Ferlemann. She lived with her parents and brother Glenn Ferlemann in Manhattan until she married Jack C. Glover on December 23, 1953. Marlene graduated from both Manhattan High School and Kansas State University with a degree in Business and Matchmatics. While studying at Kansas State University Marlene belonged to the Alpha Xi Delta sorority. After graduation she moved to California to be with her husband who at the time was in the Marine Corp. After the Marines Marlene and Jack moved back to Kansas where Jack attended Medical School. Marlene and Jack had 4 children, Diane Kay, Karen Sue, Judith Ann and Elizabeth Jill. After medical school they moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico before moving to Farmington, New Mexico several years later. Marlene lived in Farmington, New Mexico until 1972 when she moved with her daughters back to Manhattan after her marriage had ended with Dr. Jack C. Glover. Her father Clyde Ferlemann owned and operated Ferlemann’s Liquor Store on 3rd street. She managed his store until she purchased it in 1977. After an attempted robbery at the Liquor Store Marlene decided to sell that business to open her own Christian Bookstore in Manhattan named Abundant Life Bookstore. Owning and operating a Christian bookstore was her favorite occupation. She truly had a deep and abiding love for God and Jesus Christ. She loved reaching out to others and introducing them to her Savior and faith. After the bookstore closed, Marlene stayed in Manhattan getting involved in local politics and helping others. Marlene also traveled frequently to California to visit with her family. She loved the ocean and going out on boats. Every chance she got she would find herself out on the water. She also went to Branson, Missouri to attend Christian conferences and prayer meetings. Marlene loved to pray and spend time with God.

Marlene is survived by three of her children Diane K. Glover, Judy Anderson and Elizabeth Jill Glover, her grandchildren Jacki Masters, Steven Masters and Garrett McKnight plus one great grandson Jaxson McKnight.
