Loving wife of Marvin. Always ready to help people, Arlene worked 40 years at Little Company of Mary as head supervisor of transfusion services. She loved to do any kind of puzzles--crosswords, logic, jigsaw, all kinds. She was a fantastic cook, made meals that were out of this world. Arlene loved to travel. Going anywhere was a joy to her. The Galapagos Islands, Tahiti, Bora Bora and others she visited. A very avid animal lover who fostered cats. She was so kind to everyone. Arlene ran the Sacred Heart Church Christmas Giving Tree Program, was a senior altar server for funerals, worked the parish picnic and the spaghetti dinners. She was a Eucharistic minister, family interviewer for funerals, involved in the program "To Teach Who Christ Is" and with that said, the greatest wife anybody ever had.
