This past week-end, I received 2 emails and 1 phone call from a few of Marlies Walker’s customers asking me about LipSense By SeneGence grand LipLady 1…
I must say that at first thought I had to chuckle when asked about “Liplady1” because Marlies Walker was such an elegant, genuine lady that I would never be able to refer to as Liplady1. It brought a smile to my face knowing that her customers had that “close relationship” with her and they all praised her dedication to incredible prompt customer service.
I wish you could have witnessed Marlies standing on stage at our SeneGence conferences’ accepting her many awards for top sales achievement. She always received them in a humble, most gracious fashion as she appeared absolutely regal on stage…
Such a polished lady almost reminiscent of yesteryear movie stars…Beautiful!
It is with much regret and sadness that I had to share with those customers that Marlies’ had pasted away recently.
I am happy to offer the following information from The Chronicle as well as associated links should you be interested in donating
MARLIES D WALKER
“Marlies D. Walker was born in Hamburg, Germany to Max & Ilse Schoenke in April of 1940. Growing up, Marlies loved to read and took part in ice skating and ballet. She took great lengths to stay at the top of her class scholastically and, at age 15, her determination shown through when she won an ice skating contest. She particularly enjoyed choir and literature classes during high school and graduated in 1958.
For many years Marlies worked handling movie stars’ finances in Beverly Hills. Later she moved on to work in the dental field and then into business on her own. She was a member of many women’s business associations and won top marketing salesperson three years in a row for her SeneGence sales. Marlies’ most memorable vacations included horseback riding in Hawaii, Jamaica and Aruba.
Marlies married Larry Walker in May of 2000 in Las Vegas. There she added two step-sons, Mike and Scott, to her own son, Eric. Boomer, her Maltese and loyal friend for fourteen years, was also an important part of her family life.
Marlies continued working until June of 2008. She had by then relocated to Rochester for a peaceful existence. She had a couple of alpacas, two collies and a cat, Garfield. She grew roses and liked riding the train and traveling for as long as she was able.
Sadly, Marlies passed away after a brave battle with cancer on November 13, 2008 at Providence St. Peter Hospital.
Her husband, son and step-sons all survive her.
A celebration of her life will be held at the Centralia Rail Road Station on November 22, 2008 at 1:00pm.
