Marlene D. Fischman, 51

M arlene D. Fischman, 51, passed away on March 15, 2011, in Stony Brook Hospital near Nesconset, Long Island, NY.

She was born July 31, 1959 at Monticello, NY, the daughter of A. Jacqueline (Bennett) Litts and Roy H. Litts. The family moved to Granville, NY in 1966. She graduated from high school there; class of 1977. After spending two months visiting with a family in Japan, she matriculated to Stony Brook University in Long Island, NY. While there, she spent one semester at a University in London, England. Marlene graduated from Stony Brook University, earning her Bachelors degree in Foreign Relations in 1981.

She is survived by her husband, Dr. Daniel Fischman and their daughter, Leah Fischman, both of Nesconset, NY.

Marlene had an expansive sense of humor and was so happy when making others laugh. She was also very out-going and felt that a stranger was only someone that she had not yet met. One of her favorite daily adventures was walking her beagle dog “Patches” around her block, and greeting everyone. She was a vibrant, sincere, and personable woman who is sorely missed.

Survivors include her parents, Roy and Jacqueline Litts of Granville, NY; brothers Wayne Litts, wife Suzanne and daughter Nicole of Comstock, NY; Brian Litts of Lake George, NY; Keith Litts, wife Deborah and daughter Emeline of West Rutland, VT and several uncles, aunts and cousins.

Memorial donations in Marlene’s memory should be made to the American Cancer Society or other charities of one’s choice. A memorial service is to be held later in the Spring.
