On Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, Barbara Ann “Birdie” (Badger) Marlette, 94, of Nineveh, passed away as gracefully as she had lived her life.
She was a dear daughter, a loving sister, a wise wife, a playful friend, a beloved mother and grandmother, an avid gardener and an absolute angel. To know her was to love her.
Barbara was a graduate of Shortridge High School (Indianapolis). She received her bachelor of arts degree from Butler University, where she was a proud member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.
She spent her life giving back to the community through many and varied volunteer activities. She honored her passions for church, education and charity through generous bequeathments over the years.
Barbara is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Penelope Coit and Dewey Killman; her cherished granddaughter, Caitlin Coit Rood; her grandson-in-law, Jeffrey Rood; and her one and only great-grandchild, Samuel Kai Rood.
No services are planned.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Salvation Army, 3100 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46208.
