SOUTHPORT, Conn. – Marlene Huff (Mar) Estabrooke, of Southport, died Monday, April 18. She was 85.

She was born Dec. 12, 1930 in Garfield, N.J. Her family moved to Bridgeport when she was 5. After she graduated from Harding High School, the family moved to Fairfield. She resided in Southport since 1982. Her first real job was at Sikorsky's in Bridgeport. After that, she enjoyed a 27-year career with the engineering department of Pepperidge Farm in Norwalk.

In retirement, she devoted countless volunteer hours to the Fairfield Historical Society and the Pequot Library. Her library work was particularly rewarding because it involved a year-round group effort to sort, price, present and sell used books. She also valued her membership in the Jenny Lind Doll Club. She served on the Harding High School reunion committee for many years.

She loved fashion, remodeling, home decorating, gardening, entertaining and volunteer work. She displayed an exceptional talent for sculpting and painting in the years after she retired.

She is survived by George Estabrooke, her husband of 41 years; and her brother, E. Donald Huff, of New York City.

A celebration of her life will be arranged later this spring. There will be no funeral or visitation.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Ave., Southport, CT; or to CT Hospice Inc., 100 Double Beach Road, Branford, CT, 06405.
