She is survived by her children Marc (Alex) Miller of Phoenix, AZ, Virginia (Dan) Britsch of Columbus Grove, OH, Ruth (Keith) Paff of Lima and David (Christine) Miller of Sacramento, CA. She has thirteen grandchildren; fifteen great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandson; a sister Jane (Jack) Duhon; a special nephew Rick (Donita) Warner; a special niece Wanda (Dennis) Newland and many nieces and nephews, too numerous to mention.

Before marriage, Arline worked at the NYA making clothes for orphanages, the Lima Cigar Factory and Sears downtown, where she met Wayne. After marriage, Arline not only raised four children, she worked side by side with Wayne on the family farm.

Arline enjoyed needlework, playing Mexican Train Dominos, was an avid reader and she loved her game shows.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the home of her son, David Miller, at a later date and will be officiated by her son-in-law Pastor Keith Paff.

The family would like to thank her wonderful staff and caregivers with Intrim Hospice, Virgi Ulmer, Carissa Sandlin and Susie Carter, along with her grandson David Nieman.
