  • Dear Ken, Cheryl and families, I want you to know that even though we haven’t kept in touch real well that I have thought of all of you often over the years. Your mother was a wonderful woman and I always looked forward to spending time with her. I can’t remember even once that she was ever annoyed with any of the five young children landed on her. She is the kind of stepmother that all stepmothers could take lessons from. I loved her very much and wish that I had done a better job keeping up with her. I remember when we went fishing at Deer Springs and I got to steer the boat for the first time, Arlene kept saying Dale, Dale and he was busy fixing a pole for someone and was ignoring her when she yelled DALE!!!! he looked up to see that we were only an inch or so from the solid rock cliff and jumped to take the controls thereby saving us and the boat. Arlene never scolded, yelled or chastized me for that close call. She was a great stopmom. She must have been an even better MOM. I know you will miss her deeply. Thank you for sharing her with all of us. Cindy

  • My step-mother, Arlene, meant a great deal more to me than she ever knew. I think I told her that at our last meeting. I have many fond memories of her picking us 5 kids up, for a weekend visit with Dad. Many times before they were married, we waited for that ride that never came. Arlene brought us back with Dad, and we knew it was because of her. I remember many times going to the Tri-City Raceway, and watching Annie yell for her favorite driver, “Go Chuck Bigelow, GOOOOOOO!!” Those are just a few of the things I remember. Cheryl, Ken…I am saddened by your loss. I hope she did not have to suffer long. I wish I could have gone to say good bye, please know that I am grieving this loss, too.

  • Not only was she a loving grandma but she also was my friend. She was always there for me and if I need a shoulder to cry on she was there. I have so many wonderful memories with her and I will cherish them for the rest of my life. You will always be in my spirits and everytime I look at Rattlesnake mountain I will see you and smile. I love you grandma and I miss you deaply.

    Your loving granddaughter,
