Arlene you will live on in my heart forever. My love to Ted and all her family
Arlene, I didn’t know you for very long but was a pleasure to chat with you at the get-togethers, sending our thoughts to your hubby and family
Our family is saddened to hear the news of Arlene’s passing. She was a dear and caring neighbor and always a joy to talk to❤️
She often cared for our cat, JUNIE, who adored her as much as we did.
