Arlene was an energetic woman with a spunky and great sense of humor. She was an avid Green Bay Packers fan. She was also so very proud of her five girls, her grandchildren, and great grandchildren. After Arlene and Howard retired, they moved to a home they purchased on Lake Alexander outside of Merrill, WI, where they lived for 23 years before moving back to Janesville to be closer to their daughters and their families.
Arlene is survived by her 5 daughters: Jackie (Bill) Carlson, Judy (Jerry) McCann, both of Janesville, Jean (Steve) Silha of Edgerton, Joan (Dan) Oldenburg of Shopiere, and Jane (Tom) Fuller of Janesville; 9 beloved grandchildren: Andy Carlson, Amy (Bryon) Greenwood, Lindsay McCann, Brent (Karissa) Silha, Nicole (Jason Porter) Silha, Danielle (Adam Dilley) Oldenburg, Nick (Meghan) Oldenburg, Morgan Fuller, and Kyle Fuller; 4 dear great grandchildren: Gracelynn, Nicholas, Brooklyn, and Graham with two more great grandchildren due this year. She is further survived by her brother-in-law David (Paula) Lamb; sister-in-law Janet (Dave) Hart. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Howard; infant daughter Joyce Lynn; and twin grandsons Ryan and Scott Oldenburg.
A Celebration of Arlene’s Life will be privately held for the family. Memorials in Arlene’s name may be made to Agrace Hospice or the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin.
