Arlene Severino , age 74, of Ashtabula, Ohio peacefully joined her beloved husband Jerry Severino on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, surrounded by her family at Ashtabula County Medical Center.

Arlene was born on December 17, 1943 in Ashtabula, Ohio, the daughter of Melvin and Rose Johnson.  She graduated from St. John High School in 1961 .  On March 11, 1967, Arlene and Jerry married.  She resided in California, alongside Jerry and their children prior to their return to Ashtabula  in 2007.  Arlene was an active member of her church and a continued supporter of Academics, Athletics, and Drama Club at St. John School. 

Arlene was a Godmother to many, as well as a surrogate mother and grandmother to many people across the country, and loved each of them as if they were her own; but nothing compared to the love she had for her own children and grandchildren.
