Arlene devoted her life to making a warm and loving home for her husband and children. She was a wonderful cook and baker who will be long remembered for her delicious red velvet cake. Each spring Arlene looked forward to planting a large vegetable garden which she nurtured into fruitful abundance to can and share with family and friends. Even in the final years of her life, Arlene still adorned her apartment building with dozens of colorful potted plants. She loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing and swimming in the area lakes. Throughout her life, Arlene created many beautiful lawn ornaments which she brightly painted. Later in life, she perfected her painting skills with many beautiful mountain and timber landscape paintings. She will be long remembered for her feistiness that always let you know how she felt.
