Arlene married her beloved husband John Lohle in 1957 and they lived in Rockville Centre, New York before moving to Park Ridge, New Jersey where they spent the remainder of their married life.

Arlene loved to sing and was a song leader at the Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic church in Park Ridge, New Jersey for years. She also loved to paint and draw. An avid world traveler, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina also held a special place in her heart.
An engaging conversationalist with a ready smile and an impeccable image, Arlene enjoyed entertaining and deeply loved her family and friends.
After the passing of her husband John, Arlene moved to Shelton, CT in 2002. She joined the Gaelic Club of Fairfield and was active in several senior centers, the Red Hats Society and other organizations.
