While the kids were in school, Arlene was a stay at home mom. She then began working at Marking Solutions where she enjoyed packing parts and pieces with the girls and working for her boss, Joe, whom she enjoyed so much.
Arlene was active in her younger years as an avid bowler and enjoyed her league play at Rose Bowling Lanes. She supported her kids’ and grandkids’ activities in every way possible. Later in life she was able to support Charlie in his favorite pastime in Senior Softball. They enjoyed many fun times during this time.
She was never shy from a challenge and doing any type of activity from building projects, playing music with her organ, cross-stitching, and crocheting to pass the time.
We all know that she is now back with her most favorite thing to do and that is keeping Charlie in line!
