in Maryland for 24 years, where they owned and operated a Ben Franklin Store in Pasadena.

Arlene continued her love of painting and drawing and captured the beauty of local landscapes and wildlife on her canvases for most of her life.

They moved back to RI in 1993 and bought a rustic log cabin in West Kingston, where she studied local birds, walked the beaches, painted, knitted and crocheted, cooked wonderful meals, decorated, and entertained family and friends.
