Arlene was an active home maker and involved mother of 3. They moved to their new home on Nine Mile Creek in 1961 and lived the typical suburban life. In 1975 they moved to a ten acre hobby farm north of Delano. This gave Arlene the opportunity to enjoy her love of gardening where she kept large flower and vegetable gardens. Twenty years later they moved to a home on Collinwood Lake. Arlene and John enjoyed fishing, camping and travelling. They travelled in U.S and Canada in their motor home. They visited several countries in Europe. They moved to Litchfield in 2000 and John died three years later. Arlene continued to travel and spend the winters in Arizona until 2012. She moved to Inver Grove Heights in January to an assisted living community. She also enjoyed genealogy, reading and fishing.
