Griepentrog -- Arlene E. Griepentrog resident of Albuquerque, former resident of Milwaukee, WI. Taken by her third heart attack the evening of Thurs. Nov. 19, 1998 at the start of her 69th year. She rejoins Howard, her husband of 41 years. Dear mother of Jim and sister to Donald Bublitz of Eland, WI. Though her family was small her bond of friendships crossed miles and generations for dozens of people. This self-proclaimed hairbender touched lives as more than a beautician. As a volunteer at St. Josephs Hospital she offered aid. As an instructor she gave her experience and knowledge. And, Arlene balanced family and career as an older working mother before this was common. She leaves the world a better place from her presence here...too soon and missed. A wake will be held at 12112 Calle Zagal NE between noon and 3:00 p.m. this Sunday. Memorial contributions can be made to Catholic Social Services of Albuquerque in her name.
