Arlene was my mother’s , Avon lady for years! Mary H Owens . We lived on 46 and I was a small child and I remember Arlene coming to our home and sitting down with my mom and explaining about Avon products and always gave my mom a little samples of lipstick. My mother always told me to wear lipstick and to wear face powder because Arlene said that’s what made make up complete! Those memories have stuck with me for over 50 years! You all have my deepest sympathy.
