Arlene graduated from Enumclaw High School and was a lifelong Enumclaw resident. She was very proud of her 33-year career with Boeing as a Machinist.
Arlene was a devoted mom, grandmother, sister, and auntie. She loved Mount Rainier, the farm, NASCAR, the Mariners, and traveling with friends and family. Arlene was a diehard country music fan, enjoyed watching the hydroplane races and Blue Angels during Seafair, and the company of her cat Charcoal.
Arlene is survived by her son, Earl (Buddy) Petrusse (Sonya); sister, Carol Buckendahl; two granddaughters, Kendell and Raylynn; three nieces, Terra Higginbotham (Mike), Trina Munsch (Chad), and Tricia Hoskins (Steve); and many great nieces and nephews.

A private family graveside service will be held at Enumclaw Evergreen Memorial Park with Father Clarence Jones presiding.
