Sad news of the passing of long time field trialer Marlene Herrington on Christmas day.

A member of the Vancouver Island Retriever Club, Marlene and husband Al (who passed in 2009) co-founded Maralan Kennels and were proud owners, breeders, and trainers of many fine and award winning Labradors.

Marlene had sold her home in Central Saanich and moved to Pemberton, BC with son Guy. Marlene passed at age 81 in hospital in Vancouver after a stroke in early December. Our condolences to Marlene’s family.
