She was a Buckeye through and through and as such her support for Ohio State never waned; she followed the football team and would often wear some piece of branded Buckeye clothing.

Arlene and I met when we worked at the same company. She has been a dear and special friend ever since. She is one of the kindest and most generous people I have ever known. I will miss our lively discussions on current events and her easy sense of humor.
