After graduating from Jefferson High School, she married her high school sweetheart, Marvin Lee Livingston on January 9, 1958, and they then relocated to Melbourne, Florida. The couple raised four children together: John, Catherine, Anne, and Amy. The family moved back to Lafayette, Indiana in 1970, where they raised their family. Arlene lived a long and full life and touched many people through her community and advocacy work. Arlene worked at Meals on Wheels from 1977, where she brightened the lives of many people in her community through providing food and company to seniors, until she retired in 1998.

Arlene was a member of St. Mary’s Cathedral, The Rosary Alter Society and a strong advocate for the Tippecanoe County Right To Life.
