Marlene Felicia Mincin

October 22, 1934 — February 11, 2021

On Thursday, February 11, 2021, Marlene Felicia Mincin, mother of three sons (David, Mark, and Roy), passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 86 on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Marlene was born on October 22, 1934, in Pittsburgh. She married David Mincin on September 7, 1957. Her husband David, died on January 15, 2018. Upon his death, Marlene moved from McMurray, Pennsylvania to Seattle, Washington to be with her sons, grandchildren (Katie, Emily, and Haley), and her daughter-in-law Lauren.

Where to start with Marlene’s passions and the things she loved? Most importantly she loved her immediate and large extended family, which meant everything to her. She loved her life-long friends and neighbors in Pittsburgh and missed them deeply when she moved to Seattle. She loved her many friends at Center Presbyterian Church. She loved gardening and being outside in the summer—she grew beautiful flowers that surrounded the family’s McMurry home for 60 years. And she absolutely loved (loved) cooking and baking. There was no better. Her kitchen was the center of family life up until her death. The day before she passed away, she was still printing new recipes to try out from her iPad. Her homemade ravioli and gnocchi were two of many favorite dishes of family and friends. We are fortunate that Marlene taught her grandchildren, sons, and daughter-in-law to make many of her most special Italian recipes so they can be passed on to future generations. She will be greatly missed.

Donations can be made to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank ( A burial service will be held for immediate family in Seattle on February 19th.

Arrangements are entrusted to the Cook Family Funeral Home of Bainbridge Island.
