Arleen enjoyed life through the experiences she gained and the sites she viewed during her travels. We will hold dear memories of a loving and kind woman who loved to share her many mottos. Whenever she was asked how are you doing? She liked to reply, "I do as I please!" Although we are saddened she is gone we too are pleased, pleased she has been reunited with those she had longed to see again and pleased she is with the Lord. Honoring her wishes there will be no public viewing or visitation. Friends and family are invited to attend a Funeral Mass which will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Tuesday at St. Michael Catholic Church, Fr. Brian Warchola, celebrant.
