Marlee left this Earth to join her beloved sister Linda Jo the afternoon of Oct. 27, 2018, in Alpine, Texas, following complications with a recent injury.

She was born July 26, 1959, in Monahans, Texas, the second daughter of Joe Lanier of Eastland, Texas, and Maurine (Carlile) Lanier of Stamford, Texas.

Her love of music started very early on. Following her very first piano lessons, Marlee’s gifts became evident, and for the rest of her life, she was able to play almost any instrument she picked up.

No stranger to struggle herself, Marlee was a devoted and loyal friend, and used her keen sense of humor, her kindness of heart, and her sparkling blue eyes to ease the burdens of those around her. Family and friends alike often witnessed Marlee placing the needs of her loved ones ahead of her own. Never was this more evident than when an opportunity to help a close friend or an animal in need presented itself. Her compassionate nature will be missed by all who knew her.

Marlee was preceded in death by her sister Linda, and her father Joe.

Left to mourn her passing are a multitude of family members and friends, including her cherished son, Justin Rowan, and his wife Kara, of Midland, Texas; mother Maurine Pendleton of Alpine; older brother Leslie Lanier and wife Rosie of Lubbock, Texas; younger sister Lisa Lanier of Alpine; and her constant companion/sidekick, her Chihuahua, Honey.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at the Quarter Circle 7 Hotel pavilion located in Alpine at 2800 West Highway 90. Family and friends are encouraged to bring musical instruments and memories for a joyous celebration of Marlee’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her name to the Alpine Humane Society.
