Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend passed away unexpectedly on March 20, 2021. Arlene was born to Eloy and Eufelia Herrera on April 25, 1962. Arlene was a good-hearted and hard-working woman. She worked for PCA (Packaging Corporations of America) for 12 years and was very grateful for the lifelong friendships created.
She was the youngest of 14 children. She loved all of her siblings and their children very much and enjoyed the memories they shared.
Arlene later focused full time raising her 4 boys and took great pride being the best grandma to her 11 grandchildren: Alyssa, Ethan, Missy, Damon, Juju, Zadie, Zariah, Sharlet, Etzio, Etsidy, Caitlin and her one great-grandchild Kai. She also had a special bond with all her of pets throughout her lifetime; Littlefoot, Snoop, Pinto, Daisy, Izzy and finally Mr. Lee. Some of our fondest memories of her were going to Hollywood Video every Tuesday to rent new movies or her very strong sweet tooth. She also loved Iris’s and Lilacs. She was a huge Utah Jazz fan and those who knew her were aware of her Jazz wall. She had a great sense of fashion and had a fresh set of nails for every special occasion. Arlene enjoyed spending time with her family and sharing delicious homemade meals she was known for like Chicken Tacos, Chicken Enchiladas and 7up Jello for birthdays and holidays.
Arlene is survived by her husband Salvador R. Briceno, her son's; Guadalupe Lopez, Salvador K. Briceno (Monique), Christopher J. Briceno (Catalina) and Roy G. Briceno. Arlene was an amazing contributor of love and understanding to this world. She will be deeply missed by her friends, family and all who knew her.
