Arlene was born in the United States and moved at the age of three, with her family to Canada and settled in the Goodwin area.
Arlene was proudly baptised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the year Nineteen Hundred Seventy Two. She lived and served Jehovah faithfully as a very caring person. She brought joy and comfort to our family each day. We found her a great pillar of support.
