Arlene Marie Neuy, 70

Arlene Marie Neuy, 70, began her journey April 1, 1939, she arrived peacefully at the Lords Gate June 3, 2009. The last couple of months of her life she resided in the home of her daughter, surrounded by her children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters and loved ones.

Arlene was born to Arthur and Marion (nee Topel) Neuy in West Bend, where she resided for most of her life. She cared for multiple people throughout her life in home healthcare, making a huge difference in many families’ lives. She was more than just a person, she was a sister, a daughter and a friend of many, but most of all, she was a mother of six, a grandmother of 18 and a great-grandmother of 11. She will forever remain in everyone’s heart and soul during the rest of our journey and her memory forever is stationed here on Earth. We can only hope and pray that we are privileged enough for Him to take us into His arms and lead us to her when our journey has come to a closing.

Arlene was survived by her six children, George (Chris) Rick of Fond du Lac, Todd Rick of Campbellsport, Perry Rick of West Bend, Lisa (James Butz) Zimdars of Kewaskum, Kimberly (George) Albrent of West Bend and Jason (Nicole Langlois) Plaskey of West Bend.
