A Mass of Christian Burial for Marlene C. (Apel) Kokojan, age 82 years, of Enid, is 2:00 pm, Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Bison, Oklahoma with Father Edward Menasco celebrating Marlene’s life.

Marlene was born December 14, 1936 in Enid to Henry and Rose (Descher) Apel, and passed away on Wednesday, December 26, 2018 at The Commons in Enid.
Marlene was born and raised in the Enid community, graduating from Enid High School. She married James “Jim” Kokojan on October 24, 1959 in Bison, Ok. They made their home in Waukomis where Jim farmed and raised cattle and she was a homemaker and stay at home mother to four children. She and Jim were members of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Bison, and she was a lifetime member of the Bison Alter Society. She was one of the best cooks around; always making a favorite dish for Jim and each of their children’s birthdays. After Jim passed away in 2009, Marlene enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and especially enjoyed working crossword puzzles and jigsaw puzzles.
