Her children and grandchildren were her greatest joys. In later years she devoted her attention to prayer, encouraging her friends and family and generously sharing whatever she had with others. She possessed a quiet, gentle disposition and warmth that deeply affected all those who knew her well.

Arliss is survived by her three children Joan (Joanie) Sharon (Rexanne) of Rockford, Minn.; Robert Edgar (Connie) of Parker, Colo. and Dwight Douglas (Paula) of Centennial, Colo. She is additionally survived by three grandchildren, Elizabeth Francesca (Will), Jacob Robert and Gavin Isaac.
