EDMESTON - Grace Arlene Oliver, 86, left this world Nov. 15, 2017, to go to the next.
Arlene, as she preferred to be called, spent most of her life in Edmeston. She was a beloved mother, spunky friend of her local coffee gathering for years and caregiver to her neighbors with baked goods, hands on care, and unending wisdom.
She leaves behind two daughters, Debby Rendo of Morris and Susan Staffieri of Long Island; son, Joseph White of North Carolina; five grandchildren; four sisters; a brother; many nieces and nephews.
Arlene was predeceased by her youngest son, Rick; husband, James; one sister and two brothers.
Arlene requested there be no memorial service. Instead, she hopes you lend a hand to your neighbor and to each other, take time to smell the roses, hear the birds sing and make your part of the world a better place.
The family thanks Dottie Tilbe for her daily companionship to Mom and all those who came to see her, call and for their help over the years.
"Journey well Mom."
