Remembering Marlene Rome

It is with great sadness that the family of Marlene Rome announces her passing in Bossier City on Thursday, January 5th, at the age of 79. Marlene was born July 19, 1942 in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, to Frank Sylvester Noel Sr. and Constance Jackson Noel.

Marlene was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Anthony Nicholas Rome Sr.

She will be lovingly remembered by her children Anthony (Tag) Nicholas Rome Jr., Todd Michael Rome and wife Tammy, and Christopher Noel Rome; her grandchildren Victoria Noel Rome, Anthony Nicholas Rome III and his wife Katie, Michael Anthony Rome, Sophia Arlene Rome, Camille Alice Rome; and great grandchildren Gabriella Oliva Rome, Anthony Nicholas Rome IV, along with additional family, and countless friends.

She was laid to rest with the love of her life, Tony Rome, at the St. Lucy’s Catholic Church cemetery in Hodge, Louisiana on January 10th. The Romes, although both south Louisiana natives, settled in Jonesboro and joyfully raised their family there.

Memorial donations in the couple’s honor (Tony & Marlene Rome) may be made to the American Heart Association.

Marlene may be gone, but never forgotten.
