Arlene was born in Los An geles, California, on October 3, 1950, to James and Angelina Nazario. She spent her youth in southern California where she met her husband, and together they brought forth three children. Years after the family relocated to Bridgeport, Arlene became a beloved friend in the community. Once she became part of the congregation at First Presbyterian Church, she devoted as much time as she could in ministry. Arlene loved her spiritual family, God and her country. Although she is in a better place, she will be dearly missed.

She is survived by her two daughters, Anna and Jael, and her son, James.
