Marlene “Zelda May” Viele, 81, of Colchester VT passed away unexpectedly but comfortably at University of Vermont Medical Center on Friday December 20th, 2019. Marlene was born in New Jersey on August 25th, 1938 and grew up in Vermont.

Predeceased by her Sister, Sylvia Jean (Viele) Larmay in 1997 and Grand-Daughter, Erica Jean Smith in 2011.

Marlene was an inspiring woman who enjoyed every aspect of life. There are many words that could describe the kind of person she was but words alone are not enough. She had the courage to try new things like four wheeling and the drive to keep traditions alive. Camping, Fishing, the beach, Family gatherings, Spending time with Friends. There was never a moment when she was in a room were someone was not laughing. Marlene was a spitfire with sass and spunk but also had grace and warmth. She always spoke her mind no matter how untraditional it was. Many memories and a heck of a lot of joking around. She is an unforgettable woman who every time you think of will make you smile.

Her Spirit is carried on by her daughter Stacey Smith and Husband Wendell Smith, 3 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, family, extended family and friends from every walk of life.

“Special Thanks to The Dillon’s whom she considered her second family.”

Please share your stories, pictures, joy and memories with us.
A Celebration of her life will be held from 4:00 to 8:00 PM Saturday December 28, at the VFW 6 Maple St, Winooski, with a service starting at 4:30 PM, as parking is limited, please park at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers donation may be made to Stacy Smith c/o LaVigne Funeral Home and Cremation Service, 132 Main ST., Winooski, VT 05404.

Our sincere condolences to Stacy and family. Our beloved Marlene left an indelible mark on our hearts. So many memories of her over the years! As a baby sitter she was a force; she often seemed just like one of the kids, but an iron fist turned out when it was time to clean up before Mom and Dad got home! So many years when she helped us trim the Christmas tree - always the expert at hanging the lights, as well as other worldly topics. She was never void of something to say, but somehow always with a smile. We are honored that Marlene always considered us as her second family. RIP Marlene.

Love Jim Dillon and Oonagh McHugh-Dillon

I knew Marlene for many years while I worked as a vendor in her store. I always looked forward to seeing her and hearing about what was new and exciting, she loved talking about her family who she adored. I would run into her here and there after she left that store and every time I would stop and catch up, she was a wonderful, one of a kind lady and my heart broke when I heard the news today. I will always smile when I think of her.

Stacey and Aunt Marlene and family,
I can remember like it was yesterday and not more than 50 years ago that I was spending another day on my dear Aunt Marlene's porch playing with Stacey and I had very few more happy memories than that. It was only this last Wednesday that I messaged my dear Aunt Marlene thinking that we should get together, that it had been way to long and I should of followed up further when I did not get a reply. Rest in Peace my dear aunt and please hug your sis, my dearest aunt Sylvia and my mom Leona when you get to heaven. They will be rejoiced to see you again, albeit at our loss, with tears of love flowing from my eyes, your nephew, Billy.
