Tenant of the Month


Tenant of the Month!

Arlene Engh

Arlene was born on February 3, 1930, on a farm south of Britt.  Her parents were Ed and Nellie Anderson.  She grew up with four brothers and that could be a challenge.  Arlene attended school at Erin #6 until the 7th grade.  She then attended the Vernon consolidated school system where she graduated.  After graduation she worked for Bell telephone company in clarion for one year.  She married her husband Willis on March 19, 1948, at the Renwick parsonage and they were married for 65 years.  After they were married, they lived on a farm by Kanawha for 41 years, where they raised their three sons.  They moved to Kanawha in 1989 after they retired from farming.  Arlene has been a lifelong member of the Kanawha Lutheran Church.  She loves spending time with her 8 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.  Willis died in 2013 and Arlene continued living in Kanawha in her home until a year ago when she joined the Summit House family.

Congratulations Arlene on being Tenant of the Month!
