Arlene Emma Ericson born October 15, 1946 passed away in peace and comfort, with her family by her side on October 21st, 2023 after a year and half battle with cancer. She grew up in Trumbull CT and landed her very first job at The Bridgeport YMCA where she was the bookkeeper for 17 years. This began her long and storied career with The YMCA where she moved on to work at Camp Hi Rock in MA and then Camp Speers in PA with the Equestrian program. With her love and passion for horses as a child this dream job allowed her to continue working with them throughout the rest of her life. She also met her beloved husband Tom through the YMCA where he was the Executive Director of both camps. Arlene and Tom were passionate about The YMCA, the camp life and what it stood for. In Tom's retirement they made the permanent move to PA. Arlene then began working for C&S Stables where she had many responsibilities including teaching riding and conducting trail rides. She particularly loved teaching kids with special needs on one of her favorite horses Louie. She truly loved not only horses but all animals which extended to her very own vast ensemble at home. Arlene was also highly skilled with Crocheting, Needlepoint and Photography; winning several ribbons at the annual 4 H Fairs for her amazing work. She was incredibly giving and compassionate and loved her family with all her heart. Her legacy is one of kindness to all people and animals alike.
Arlene is preceded in death by her husband Tom Q. Moore and is survived by her sister Elizabeth A. Calaway, her brother Alan E. Ericson and his wife Linda, nieces Alicia P. Calaway, Dana L. Emmanouilidis and her husband Dimitrios, Shelley M. Sousa and her husband Virgil, nephew Christopher E. Ericson and great nephews, Dimitrios P. Emmanouilidis and Dylan E. Emmanouilidis. She is also survived by loving cousins and Tom's extended family.
