Of Blessed Memory: Arlene Zuckerman

Arlene Zuckerman passed away quietly February 16, 2024. She will be missed greatly by many, including her husband of 65+ years, Marty, children Leslie (Mike), Debbie (Bill), brother Larry (Suzi) and grandchildren Dustin, Samantha, David and Ember. Arlene was preceded in death by her sister Lee (Stan).

Arlene is remembered by her daughters as a force to be reckoned with when they were younger. While she enjoyed tennis as a young mother, her life was always full, working multiple jobs at once, playing bridge and enjoying a life pursuing a variety of artistic endeavors including fused glass, crochet, knitting, paper flowers, photography and jewelry making.

Arlene loved keeping in touch with family from near and far. Conversations with her brother and sister and nieces and nephews were a priority. She moved to Tucson in 2007 after a wonderful life in Milwaukee. The move allowed Arlene more time with her grandchildren, something she treasured greatly.

Friends and family remember Arlene’s desire to do anything to help, her wonderful cooking ability that often focused on sweet treats and her dedication to a life spent focused on family, friends and making the world a better place one artistic creation after another.

A service was held on February 19 at 9:00 AM at Evergreen Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to either Kol Ami Synagogue or Sonoran Glass Studio.
