Arlene loved keeping in touch with family from near and far. Conversations with her brother and sister and nieces and nephews were a priority. She moved to Tucson in 2007 after a wonderful life in Milwaukee. The move allowed Arlene more time with her grandchildren, something she treasured greatly. Friends and family remember Arlene’s desire to do anything to help, her wonderful cooking ability that often focused on sweet treats and her dedication to a life spent focused on family, friends and making the world a better place one artistic creation after another. A service will be held on February 19th at 9:00 AM at Evergreen Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to either Kol Ami Synagogue or Sonoran Glass Studio."
