They spent the first half of their life together, living in Yuma Arizona and Cortez Colorado. For the last 26 years Watertown has been her home.
Roylene was an exceptionally kind and loving individual. She had a tender heart and compassion for animals. If she wasn’t golfing with her friends, you would often see her sitting in her sun porch. She would listen to the tranquil sound of water that was provided by the pond right outside the porch windows. It was the kind of ambiance she appreciated while she spent time on her iPad or reading a book.
Roylene is survived by her husband Dennis of Watertown SD; children: Randy Marx Minneapolis MN; wife to his children Linda Marx Mankato MN; Billie Rillo (Art) Granite Falls MN; grandsons: Isaac (Kate) Chandler, Ben; granddaughter's: Taylor (Ace),Breanna and Nicole; great grandsons: Julius and Lincoln.
