Arlene was born December 27, 1928, in Havre to George and Myrtle (Quamme) Daniel. She was raised on the family farm on Sandy Creek northwest of Laredo, attending school through the eighth grade at Madden School and high school in Havre. In 1944, Arlene married Richard Brown, and the couple had three children. When they married, the couple moved to the family farm located on Laredo Road, where Arlene raised her children and was a 4-H Leader for many years. She was also very active as an Avon lady.

Arlene was a quick-witted woman with a heart of gold who enjoyed sewing, quilting, reading, and gardening, and was a member of Fifth Avenue Christian Church and the Havre Eagles Club.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard, in 2001; grandson William Brown; parents, George and Myrtle Daniel; siblings Robert "Bud" Daniel, Dohreen Palin, Gloria Chamberlain, Mark Daniel, and Lee Daniel; and sisters-in-law, Ethel Couch and Helen Lawrence.

Arlene is survived by her children, David (Julie) Brown and Matthew (Jimmi Linn) Brown, all of Havre, and Pam (Lynn McCraney) Brown of Goodlettsville, TN; grandchildren Daniele Brown, Robert (Tracie) Brown, Candice (Mike) Snyder, and Eric (Jenny) Seidensticker; six great-grandchildren; sister Joyce Hecht of Albany, OR; numerous nieces, nephews, and other extended family and friends.

To honor Arlene and her love of quilting, her family would like to ask, if you are attending the services and have an item that she has made for you, please bring it and display it over your chair.  Thank you.
