Arlene had 8 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She also had many nieces and nephews. Arlene was a loving wife and caring mother, grandmother and great- grandmother. Indeed these were the hallmarks of her life. Arlene had progressive dementia and showed us all how to live in the moment, keep life simple and remember to show love with smiles. Our family is so grateful to all the staff and residents at Interlachen English Rose who so lovingly cared for our mother. They were like family to Arlene.

"May you think of me each time the sun shines, a child laughs, or a smile blesses you...know I will be watching over you."
