When someone as special and beloved as Arleen Sievers passes on to Heaven, we all realize that she lives forever in our hearts and minds. We remember and celebrate her warmth, humor, and genuine affection for those lucky enough to have known her. The lives she touched, created and influenced is hard to measure, as a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, daughter, and friend. But you can easily feel the love that surrounds her family... eternal, strong, and real. Selfless, generous, caring, and thoughtful, Arleen was always quick to accept and forgive, and rare to judge. She is woven into the fabric of our lives as we all add our own patches to the family quilt. A quilt that is comforting to those who are sad at her passing. But that sadness disappears when you remember that sweet smile of hers. You can see it still down here on her children's and grandchildren's faces. Her passing the day before her birthday holds a wonderful truth. Because what better way to celebrate a person's life than by being reborn in Heaven. Sweet Dreams Arleen. Thank you for the love, laughter, and joy you gave us. We all love you very much.

In loving memory to a wonderful sister. Although physically we lived miles apart, you were always near to me in my heart. We will miss your special laughter whenever we talked. I celebrate the special woman that you became, but mostly the wonderful sister that I was so lucky to have...lovingly, Jerry and Jeanette
