Arlene M. Thomas – age 80, passed away Thursday November 28, 2019, at Bethany on 42nd, surrounded by family. She was born in Bottineau County, ND on August 13, 1939, to Alfred and Adeline Allard. Arlene attended school in Bottineau, ND, where they resided. After beginning her career in accounting, she married Wayne Thomas on March 15, 1962, in Bottineau, ND. Wayne and Arlene met at Stone Café in 1960, where she worked in Bottineau, while he was in town working on road construction.

In her spare time she enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, painting ceramics, going to concerts and comedy shows at the casinos.

    So sorry for your moms passing… It’s hard to see your friends parents pass when you’ve known them too all of the time we’ve been friends. Hugs to you all during this sad time. Now your mom is happy in heaven with your dad…
