Eunice "Arlene" Lietner Briscoe, was born February 18, 1931 to Parents John and Lucille Lietner in Electra, TX. She was received by our Lord Tuesday October 22, 2013. Her Father worked for the Magnolia Oil Company and they lived and he worked all over Texas. Her parents operated a diary and a farm in Alvord where she could tell tales about raising tomatoes and watermelons. Arlene has a Sister, Belva Garrett of Alvord, TX and a Brother Larry Lietner in Elm Mott, TX.

Arlene met her future husband of 53 years, Ralph Wallace Briscoe while she was riding in the school bus she rode after he returned from Guam in WW II in the Seabees. They married May 8, 1948. Ralph worked in an aircraft factory in Saginaw, TX and Arlene was a beautician in Alvord, TX and later in Wichita Falls and Archer City, TX. She was a Teacher's Assistant in the Wichita Falls Independent School District. Ralph and Arlene traveled extensively in their later years until Ralph died in 2002.

Ralph and Arlene had two sons, Arnold W. and Daylon R. Briscoe. Ralph and Daylon preceded Arlene in going to Jesus. Daylon left a widow, Barbara Briscoe, two daughters, Tricia and Laura and her Son James and Daughter McKenzie. Arnold and his wife Elaine have one Son, Adam and grandson Connor.

Arlene's greatest joy was being a member of Mim's Baptist Church and often even though knowing the church might not open until 6:00 PM, she would be there at 5:00 PM just in case. Knowing several weeks in advance of the surgery she had, she started making out cards for members of her Sunday School class and others through November just in case she might not be able to write them after getting out of the hospital.

Arlene never met a stranger and wanted to take each one of them to Heaven with her when she went. She is there now, so those she met she expects to see with Jesus one day.

Visitation with the family will be Thursday, October 24 from 6:00-8:00 PM at Sam Houston Memorial Funeral Home in Willis. Her funeral will be held at Mim's Baptist Church, 1609 Porter Road, Conroe, TX 77301 on Friday, October 25, 2013 at 2:00 PM. Pastor Gene Kendrick will be officiating. For those traveling in or just local, there will be a lunch served at the church at 12:00 Noon. Interment will be at the Alvord Cemetery at 1:00 PM on Saturday, October 26, 2013.
