Arlene was a mentor and a role model for many.

I was so sad to hear about Arlene's passing. She was a wonderful woman, who accomplished so much and inspired so many! Thank you for sharing her with us; her Cal Poly and Student Affairs family will miss her warm smile and energy.

I am forever indebted and thankful to Arlene for her mentorship, passion and reassurance. Her personal cards of encouragement to continue being a leader are treasured keepsakes. What a debt of gratitude we owe Arlene for her courage and wisdom. Thank you Arlene for leaving the legacy of Family Services Center/Community Counseling Center for us all.

Arlene was truly a shining light in our community. Each time that I had the honor to be around her, she always had big smile and something lovely to say. While I did not know her well, I certainly cherish the times I was able to be around her.

Arlene was a truly remarkable person, always dedicated to helping others. This dedication explains why she was a committed member of the Democratic Party all of her adult life. I remember her telling me that she not only voted for FDR when he ran for a 4th term as president in 1944, but she recalled walked precincts for him! FDR was her hero and Arlene is my hero. Like FDR, Arlene set a standard of caring involvement in public life that few of us will ever match.

We are so sorry to know of your loss in your wonderful family, and know how incredibly special she was. Such an accomplished person and parent. Thinking of you all during this time with much love,

A remarkable life - lived fully and in service of others - an example to us all. My heart goes out to Chan and family, especially Mark, Carolyn and Lea. May Arlene rest in eternal peace.

Arlene Chandler was one of the first persons who welcomed to me to San Luis Obispo when I arrived 40 years ago this month, as a young city planner very new to the wonders of SLO. I got to know Arlene first in our work with the Sierra Club Santa Lucia Chapter, and on many campaigns over those four decades. She was a great role model for me as a civic activist, as a concerned citizen, and as a proponent of democratic values. She was an inspiration to so many people: To women and girls, to writers and journalists, and to community activists like myself. She touched so many lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and with Everett and all of the Chandler family.
