Arlene was born in Long Island, New York to Ernest and Martha White on March 28, 1925. She grew up in Oswego, New York and participated in several activities during her school years. She played basketball, softball and swimming. She also was a Brownie and then became a Girl Scout , which she really enjoyed! (Arlene actually went on to be a Girl Scout leader for her girls later). She was involved in a lot of clubs at her church also. Arlene loved to go on vacations at the Lodge in Upstate New York so she and her parents went quite frequently. After high school Arlene actively volunteered for community events, one of which was the Sale of War Bonds. In 1945 she married Robert Jacker, they moved to Rochester (Gates), New York, and raised their 3 girls , Martha, Patricia and Barbara. (They divorced in 1974) Their girls eventually moved to Colorado.
After Arlene moved out to Colorado to be with her girls, she was doing office work in the medical field and then went on to work the last several years as the Payroll Manager at Meals on Wheels. She truly enjoyed helping others! Also once she came out to Colorado she became an avid Broncos Fan! And John Elway was her favorite!!!! She was even a member of the Front Line Boosters club back in the 80’s! You would always find her dressed to the hilt in her Broncos garb!!! One of the highlights of her weeks were those Bronco Games!!!
Arlene is preceded in death by her parents, Ernest and Martha White. Arlene is survived by her 3 daughters, Martha Robinson of Tucson, Arizona, Patricia Robinson (husband David) of Tucson Arizona, and Barbara Katz (husband Robert) of Livermore, Colorado.

Grandma, I always loved to tell you about life/school and what was ahead. I know you were very proud of me making it into nursing school. I wish I could have told you that I made it through my first week. But you knew I could make it. I still wear the ring you bought me everyday from a time when we went shopping together. Keep it sassy up there. I love you forever.
