I have so many fond memories of my beautiful Sister-in-Law Arlene, I don't know where to begin. She was my first hairdresser and shopping partner making trips to downtown Chicago. She was also a patient listener to any problem I thought was unsolvable, giving me advise that was so very helpful. We also had many nice evening's enjoying the shows at the Holiday Star where she had connections to the best seats in the house. She was a devoted and loving wife to my brother. A dedicated and loving mother, and grandmother. Always bringing in little pets to nurture and protect, plus feeding any stray animal and finding them loving homes.
She was a stylish lady always meticulous with her appearance and lovely home. She always made a profound impressing on all who just met her and those who knew her well. She will be severally missed by everyone who loved her. But we can have some comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering but rejoicing in her new home with all her loved ones that went on before her. Rest in Peace until we see you again...
