Arlene married William "Bill" Goodwin on October 30, 1954 in North East and became a vital part of Goodwin Farms and Greenhouses until their retirement in 2007. She was the friendly face of the market on Old French Rd in the summer and fall, and at the greenhouses from January to May. Her knowledge of flowers and produce was only surpassed by her friendly smile and willingness to help customers.
Arlene had a kind and generous heart and was always willing to lend a helping hand to others. Her jams and jellies, pies, brownies and soups brought a smile to many faces, and making and sharing them brought warmth to her heart.
In addition to her parents Arlene was preceded in death by two sisters, Virginia and Ruby; five brothers, Wilford, Raymond, Donnie, Dayton and Darrell Eastman; her mother-in-law Helen and father-in-law Paul Goodwin ; her brother-in-law, David and his wife Janet Goodwin.
