Arlene G. Brost of Janesville pegged her last cribbage point Wednesday, August 26, 2020. Arlene was wife and constant companion of Raymond Brost for 72 years of marriage, a relationship that put art into partnership. She appreciate and cherished her 91 years of life not only for the love of her family, but also the enjoyment in sharing life with them through her interests in gardening, crocheting, card games, baking, camping, fishing, and the frequent family get-togethers, large and small. To one she was a devoted wife, to others a loving mother, grandmother, or great grandmother, and to all of them and to so many more she was a friend.
Her memory will forever be etched in the hearts of her ten children, sixteen grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren and her loving sons and daughters-in-law and many friends, nieces, and nephews.
Arlene is preceded in death by her son Steven, her parents and step-father, her mother and father-in-law, and her sisters Clara and Eleanor, and brother Leland Guk, and son-in-law Greg “Red” Hidden. She is survived by her devoted husband Ray Brost, her children: Mary Lou (John) Donnelly, Carol (Ray) Briggs, Gloria Hidden, Nancy Ford, Mike (Michelle) Brost, Judy Hanson, David (Therese) Brost, Lisa (Todd) Moran, and Suzi (Wayne) Hansen, and her beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren.
