Arlene O’Connell went to be with God on June 10, 2019, after a courageous battle against cancer. Arlene moved to Maryland as an Army brat, at age 16, and never left. She graduated from Arundel High School in 1967. During her 30-year career at Xerox, and then 12 years at T. Rowe Price, she garnered many friends and admirers.
She leaves behind a son Daniel Joseph (“D.J.”) (wife Pam), two sisters Shari Lucas (husband Chip) and Doreen Shea (husband Michael) and a brother Michael Young (wife Debbie). Both of Arlene’s parents have already departed for Heaven, father Avery Young in 2003, and mother Lily Young in 2008. Arlene also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, who knew her kind spirit. She also had an abundance of friends and co-workers, all of whom knew how her calming presence could make a situation more enjoyable, or a difficult task less formidable.
