Arlene Josephine, daughter of John and Mary Ann (McElwaine) Lohmeier, was born November 11, 1918 on a farm near Manning, Iowa. She was the youngest of six children born at the end of WWI when her oldest brother was missing in action. Arlene grew up on the family farm on the edge of Manning and attended Manning schools graduating with the Class of 1936. On April 16, 1933 she was baptized at First Presbyterian Church in Manning.
