Arlene was one of the charter members of this ministry, beginning as Full Gospel Deaf Fellowship; changing to Deaf Christian Church, then transitioning to the city of Philadelphia proper, and the name changing to Philly Deaf.
One fact that you would observe about Arlene is that she was 'ordinary.' Like the description of Jesus, there was nothing in particular that would draw anyone to her, but it didn't take long to love her. and Her love for the house of God and the people of God was obvious. She loved fellowship and would attend any and every event at the church that she could. In her latter years, these times become more infrequent, but we knew her heart, thoughts, and prayers were with us.
