Arlene was born in Seneca Falls on September 2, 1936, the daughter of the late Thomas & Antonette Zone Pezzulo. She was a life resident of Seneca Falls. She earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Literature from Cornell University and her Master Degree in Education from S.U.N.Y. at Cortland. She had also earned 30 additional credits in school administration. Arlene was a member of St. Patrick’s Church, Seneca Falls.
She was an avid reader who also enjoyed gardening and cooking. Above all, Arlene cherished her family. In their eyes, there was no woman more dedicated to raising her children and supporting her husband. As a mother, she had the ability to know whether words of inspiration were needed, or just a hug and kiss. As a wife, Richard knew he had found the most loving and devoted partner he could ever find.
She is survived by her husband, Richard Laude, whom she married on April 25, 1959; daughter Kyle (Dave Carfora) Laude, Seneca Falls; son Brian (Diane Atherton) Laude, Orlando, Fl.; sister Carol (Joseph) Sgarlata, Oswego, NY; and several nieces and nephews.
