Together they had three children, Kathy (Dallan) Buckley of Syracuse, Melvin Brent (Sandy) Cole of Harrisville, and Mitchell (Collette) Cole of Pleasant View.

Arlene married Grant Frank Likens in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 17, 1991. They spent many hours together traveling. He later passed away on December 29, 2000.
