She stayed locally in Utah and graduated from Jordan High School. The most important day of her life was June 16th, 1954 when she married her eternal companion James Roy Ashby in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they had 8 children and mom’s greatest joy and accomplishment was her family. Arlene loved music and led many choirs. She served faithfully in the Jordan River Temple for many years, as well as in many other church callings. Arlene had a strong testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and shared that by example in the way she lived her life. A family graveside service will be held on April 20th, 2020 at Larkin Sunset Gardens. Proceeded in death by her husband James Roy, her son Layne (Cindy), her parents and numerous siblings.
