April 16th, 1937 to January 12th, 2020

Marlene A. Sorget, 82, of Richmond, formerly of Bridgman and Grand Haven, MI, was called to her eternal home in heaven on January 12, 2020 at Lakeshore Woods in Fort Gratiot, after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

She was born April 16, 1937 in Porter, IN to the late Charles and Alice Bross. She married Norman “Jack” Sorget on June 25, 1955 in Glendora, MI. He preceded her in death on September 7, 1999. She was a lifetime resident in Southwest Michigan until briefly residing in Richmond and Grand Haven.

Marlene worked as a bank teller and then Assistant Branch Manager of Farmers and Merchants National Bank in Bridgman for 20 years. She retired from Donald C. Cook Nuclear Plant in Bridgman as a document control supervisor. She was a member of Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church in Port Huron and was actively involved in church activities throughout her life, including adult choir, Sunday School teacher, visiting shut-ins, and Grief Support Ministry Leader. She enjoyed people, loved family reunions, babies and little children and loved to cook and bake. Marlene always had a smile on her face and an irresistible laugh.
