Arlene was born June 18, 1937, on a farm northeast of Linton, where she was raised. She was the daughter of John and Bernita (Sikel) James. Arlene married Arnold Zoller at United Methodist Church in Linton on Jan. 24, 1953; they enjoyed 65 years of marriage together and raised four sons and a daughter.
Arlene enjoyed reading, camping, and watching wildlife. Arlene’s passion was her family. She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and loved family gatherings. Arlene will be remembered for her genuine smile and being a kind, loving individual who always put others’ needs before her own. She was considered a mom and grandma to many who met her. Arlene always had a hug and plate ready at the dinner table for “extended family.”
