She later started in the housekeeping department at Massena Memorial Hospital, where she continued until her retirement in 1985. Arlene was a member of the VFW and AMVETS Auxiliaries, Massena Senior Citizens, and the Highland Red Hatters. She enjoyed following NASCAR, going to Dirt Track races, camping, playing cards, knitting, fishing, and playing bingo. After her retirement in 1985, she and her late husband enjoyed many winters in Ocala, Florida until his passing in 1991.
