My deepest condolences, to the family for your immeasurable loss. Arlene's mother Hilda is my Grandfather Ernest's sister, so we are extended family. In 2015, when I returned to live in New Hampshire after 30 years in Utah, Arlene and I started up an online friendship, reminiscing about our families and the older generations that we share. We had great desires to meet up in person to get to know each other better, and I am so very sad that we never managed to make that happen. I am struck by the incredible resemblances of Arlene and her children, with my family, particularly my Mom, Mary. The Nedeau genes are very strong! I am also sad to have missed the announcement of the graveside gathering, until the day after. I would surely have joined with you in honoring this remarkable matriarch of the family! Love to you all - your cousin, Susan Lund

As someone whose home Arlene diligently and professionally cleaned, yes, well into her 80s, I can testify to what a dear and amazing person she was, always prompt, thorough and caring. I cherish the time I got to spend with her and will long treasure her great laugh and wry sense of humor. And her loyalty and modest enthusiasm. Whenever she could, she’d come to a play of mine or a screening and always express her delight and even pride I feel honored to have known her and to have called her my friend. Ernest Thompson
