VIRGINIA BEACH – Arlene Elsa Losick, 81 passed away unexpectedly on May 17. She was born to Dorothy and Sidney Chernick in Kerhonkson, N.Y. on May 19, 1942. 

Arlene was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Mel. Left to cherish her memory are her son Heath (Beverley), daughter Sheryl (Leonard), grandchildren Tyler (Alex), Peyton (Jordan), Brandon, Sydney, and Dameon, great-grandchildren Liam and Solvi, and her long-time friend of 56 years, Pat.

Arlene owned and operated Armel Enterprises since 1972. She was very involved in the Jewish community, especially the synagogue, where she sat on the board of Sisterhood multiple times throughout her life.  Arlene loved to bake, cook, and help plan events at the synagogue.  She enjoyed Mahjong group weekly with the ladies, and she loved to travel with Mel.  Arlene had a little daredevil in her as was evident by her enjoyment of a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon.  

Family was the most important thing in her life, and she loved them deeply.  Her family brought her joy and were her entire world. Arlene enjoyed the fine arts, but saved her enjoyment of sports to only the ones that her grandchildren played. Nothing made her happier than seeing Heath play his trumpet in a concert, listening to Peyton sing, or receiving artwork from her grandchildren.

A memorial service in Arlene’s honor was held on May 22. Donations in Arlene’s memory to Kempsville Conservative Synagogue or K9 Justice League Https://
