Surrounded by her dear family and many friends, Mrs. Arlene Genevieve Kozlowski (nee Dalley), age 83, of Avondale, PA, formerly of Newark, NJ and Lenox, PA, died on March 26,2022, after a brief, but courageous battle with brain cancer.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of nearly 65 years, Joseph R. Kozlowski, Sr.; her children, Barbara (Kenneth), Joseph (Beverly), Paul and Kenneth; her grandchildren, Meredith Arlene, Kenneth Robert, Joseph Patrick, Briana Sansouci, Paul Daniel Jr and Jessica Lee and one great-grandson, Walker Tate. Also surviving are her siblings, Robert (Annette), Lenore (Thomas) and Edward (Marlene). Arlene will also be dearly missed by her friends at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church in Unionville, PA, the Kennett Square Senior Center and the Ladybug Quilters. Mrs. Kozlowski was a proud member of the Chester County (PA) Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
She was predeceased by her parents, Charles Dalley and Esther Bunk Dalley; sisters, Marion Dalley and Judith Dalley McGowan.
Arlene was utterly and completely devoted to her family and by extension, to the friends and neighbors who quickly found themselves ‘adopted’ into the fold. Food was central to all the family activities and Arlene’s baking skills were legend ~ creating Thanksgiving pies by the dozens and Christmas cookies by the thousands. An avid quilter and award-winning craftswoman, Arlene was a prodigious sewer for many a fundraiser. She also participated in the “Quilts of Valor” program and supported many fundraisers for her church and community through her sewing.
The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to the staff of the neurology department at the University of Pennsylvania, the staff of Hospice of Bayada, Media, PA, the Rev. Stuart Luce, April Hipkins, RN and to Dr. Richard Huag, MD, for their care and compassion.
A celebration of Arlene’s life will be held at Noon on Tuesday, 29 March 2022, at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church, 109 E. Doe Run Road, Unionville, PA. Repast to follow in the church hall.
