They retired to Beausejour in 1986. They shared 37 years of marriage, working, raising their family, and enjoying spending time with extended family and friends. After Dad died Mom continued volunteering with the church and in the community. In 1994 she married Alfred Otto and they celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in February. As Mom’s health failed Alfred was her devoted caregiver, cook and chauffeur as well as loving husband. Arlene lived a full life in her 82 years with all of the laughter and challenges that life brought her way. Mom enjoyed spending time with her family, being part of the Community Hall cooking group, being part of the Ladies group at Zion, and traveling with her sisters and their husbands early in her retirement.
