God in His Ultimate Wisdom and Power saw that the road for Arleen was getting too difficult, therefore, He allowed the angle of mercy to wrap her in his warm and gentle embrace and take her safely to the heavenly place of peace and rest (home).She joined Bentonville Disciples of Christ Church Four Oaks N.C. under the leadership of her father, Vice Bishop E.V. George at an early age. She was a former member of the George Sisters Gospel singing group until her path led her to relocate to Greensboro, N.C. She received her education in the Duplin County School system and furthered her education at Brookstone College of Business in Greensboro, N.C. Arlene was a Christian woman who studied the word of God daily and encouraged others. She had started the process of writing a book until her health greatly declined. She will be long remembered for her strong attitude toward doing things decent and in order and in a business sense.
