Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Arlene's family. We only wish Arlene would have had more time to enjoy her new kitchen and bathroom longer than she did. She truly enjoyed cooking and baking and enjoyed doing this for her family and visitors. She also enjoyed her garden. We thank her for sharing some of her wonderful fruits, vegetables and baked goods with us when we worked at her house. We will always remember her smile, it was never ending.

We will remember Arlene's kind and gentle spirit. She was a lovely woman and neighbor. I always thought she was a "role model" type of person - we could all learn some good things from her.
