August 25 1972- December 4, 2021

Marleen AKA Tooter was the oldest daughter of Marty and Shirleen Greenwood and was sister to Hoakie ( Walter)  Ulibarri and Melanie Greenwood-Kelly.

Marleen was an amazing aunt for her nephews Brendon Rosales, Richie Chavez, and Daniel Kelly, as well as her niece Braidyn Ulibarri and great-aunt to Reighlyn Rosales. Tooter loved her nieces Braid and Rynni, she had a special bond with her girls. She also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, and cousins, all of whom she shared her abundant life and who she loved very much.

Marleen was a teacher of many subjects, an advisor for FFA, and a coach of basketball and volleyball. Marleen loved kids and raised two sons, Mason Greenwood and Brice Rosales. She was so very proud of the young men that they have become and their many accomplishments. They were her life.

Marleen is preceded in death by her great-niece, Reighlyn Rosales as well as her grandparents.

She impacted many lives through her years teaching and coaching between Socorro and Magdalena. She was a big part of the Socorro County fair and served on the fair board for many years. Marleen loved livestock shows and the friends she made along the way. Marleen spent her time helping kids with their livestock projects, teaching, running the student body, and coaching.

She was always giving back to kids and her community. She strongly believed “ You cannot be good at something without being passionate about it” her passions were showing steers and pigs, basketball, volleyball, and FFA, and she has had an impact on each community.

Marleen’s best friends were Leslie, Shelby, Lori, and Sara Sue, but Marleen had friends everywhere she went and if you went anywhere with her you heard someone yelling “Hi Tooter!” which often led to conversations that could last hours.

Marleen kept a lot of things running… while running late to all of them. Time wasn’t her strong suit but when her time had come she went with her great-niece and buddy Rynni. She will be with Rynni forever watching over her and guiding her the same way she has for so many others.
