Burlingham, Arlene Arlene M. Burlingham, age 98, of Cascade Township, Michigan, passed away peacefully at Clark Retirement Community on September 25, 2020, with son Alan at her side, while listening to some of her favorite hymns. Arlene was born August 31, 1922 in Pittsburgh, PA, the daughter of George and Bessie (Graham) McMurray. She was united in marriage to Charles S. Burlingham on July 16, 1949, who preceded her in death. She is survived by her sons Douglas of Portage, Alan of Grand Rapids and Robert of Los Angeles. Arlene was a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church for over 60 years. Due to the pandemic, a memorial service has not been scheduled, but will be planned at a later date. Memorial contributions can be made to Westminster Presbyterian Church , Cascade Friends of the Library, or Clark Retirement Community. The family would like to thank the entire Clark staff, from the front desk, to her dining room servers, to her assisted living caretakers and everyone else, for a job well done. Thanks also to her friends living at Clark for the gift of companionship. Just as importantly, thanks to her nurses and social workers at Emmanuel Hospice for their loving care and support.
