She worked for Whipple & Associates, Mass Mutual for almost 25 years. However, her main role in life was being a second mom to the neighborhood children of Bonner Street, where she and her husband, Steve Sacks, raised their family.

Arlene is survived by her children, Bryan (Cheri), Ilyse, and Matt; her beloved grandchildren, Jaime, Jessica, Tanner, Jericho, and Jade; great-grandchildren Marley and Trey; and brother Barry (Donna) Yaffe. She leaves behind a heartbroken extended family, including her best friend Nonnie (Dave) Checkoff and brother-in-law Alan Sacks.
