Obituary of Arlene Holzschuh Arlene Marie Holzschuh, age 87, passed away on April 10, 2018 in Grand Junction, Colorado after a brief illness. Arlene was born in Buffalo, NY, and was the youngest of three daughters of Harry and Veronica Robbins. Arlene graduated from High School and met Nelson Holzschuh, the love of her life shortly after. Together they had three children, Dawn, Scott and Colleen. Arlene enjoyed raising her children, volunteering with the PTA and various other organizations. She was outgoing, friendly and lived life with gusto! Arlene's favorite room in her home was her kitchen ... she loved to cook, bake and sing. She belonged to her church choir and sang in an adult choir in Florida. After the kids left home, Arlene went to work for TOPS in Buffalo and eventually became a successful Mary Kay Consultant. Together Arlene and Nelson enjoyed many years of camping, hiking and traveling. After Nelson passed away in 1992, Arlene sold their home in Wales Center, NY and headed to Florida to enjoy the sunshine, sand and warmth after living in cold and snowy Buffalo. She loved “her” Florida! In 2006, Arlene left the warmth of Florida and moved to Grand Junction, Colorado to be closer to her son and grandchildren. Arlene is survived by her daughters Dawn Terry and Colleen Rein, son Scott (Leslie) and their 3 children Tim (Liz), Ben (Lauren) and Kaelyn Clarke (Nick). Additionally, Arlene has 1 great grandson, Jacob. A family memorial service will be scheduled later.
