She leaves to cherish her memory, daughter, Jenefer Sarka, son-in-law Ken Sarka; sisters, Gwen Gustavson (Jon), Nancy Davis (Jerry), and Joann Lee (Benny); several nieces and nephews, cousins, and an abundance of friends. She retired from AT&T after faithfully working in a number of positions through her years of devoted service. Arleen performed many roles in her life.

She had friends from all walks of her life whether it be from her career, school years, neighborhood or the karaoke community. Her passion throughout life was music. She will be remembered for her amazing voice and performances through the years. Arleen overcame much adversity in her life. She was strong when life called for strength. She was wise when life’s circumstances required wisdom. She was persistent when others would have given up. And she loved her family and friends fiercely.
