Arlene was born in Milwaukee and graduated from Washington High School and the Milwaukee County General Hospital School of Nursing. She was a nurse for many years and was a longtime member of First Baptist Church in West Allis. Arlene loved gardening, baking, traveling, music and all animals. Her main passion was family.

When your Mother dies, you never quite get over it. You just slowly learn how to go on without her. But always keep her tucked safely in your heart.

We'll always remember the Golden Guys and Gals picnics and the boat rides. Henry and Arlene were long time members of The First Baptist Church of West Allis and Pam and I will always miss both of them.
