Arlene House Obituary
Arlene was born in Huntington Park, CA and moved to Bakersfield as a young teenager, graduating from East Bakersfield High School in 1952. She enjoyed a long and busy retirement after working many years at
PG&E.
Arlene loved to travel with her beloved husband Joe in their motorhome, spending many weeks each year at the coast and shopping for her girls while at Quartzsite, AZ. She was a talented seamstress, an extraordinary baker of apple pies and provided countless friends and family with her famous pomegranate jelly. She also enjoyed gardening and feeding and caring for her many hummingbirds. She was a faithful member of Valley Bible Fellowship.
She is survived and her memory cherished by her devoted and loving husband of 32 years, Joe House; daughters Shayrn Wilson, Mary (Mike) Maggard, Dea-Anne Wilson, and Jennifer House; son Joe House, Jr.; grandsons, Jacob (Zoe) Maggard, and Andrew (Rebecca) Maggard; and great-grandson Rhys Maggard.
