Our Heavenly Father wrapped his loving arms around our wonderful mother and grandmother Arlene Jean Egosque on Friday July 15, 2022. Arlene passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Custer, S.D., surrounded by her loving family. She was 91 years young.

Arlene's Celebration of Life will be at 10 a.m. Friday, July 22, at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church Nashua, Mont., with a lunch to follow. Committal service will follow lunch at Highland Cemetery Glasgow.

Arlene was born April 3, 1931, in Glasgow, to Fred and Maggie (Schaffer) Stohl. She attended Nashua Schools, in Nashua, graduating in 1949. In 1950 she married the love of her life John. Arlene worked for her brother at the Nashua grocery store and then worked for the USPS where she retired in 1991. She was a lifelong member of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Nashua and Elks Club of Glasgow. After retirement Arlene and John traveled on numerous bus trips visiting every State except Hawaii and Alaska.

Arlene was a very dedicated, caring, loving wife and mother. Arlene and John spent 66 wonderful years together. Arlene loved her daughter Pam and would do anything to protect her, they were best friends. In 2014 after losing her husband John, Arlene moved to Custer part-time and then full time in 2019 to be closer to her daughter and family. Her grandchildren, Danielle, Tyler and Brody, were her pride and joy. Arlene loved and enjoyed all her family and friends.

Arlene loved her flowers, playing cards, camping, campfires, hanging with her family, having girl's night with Pam, jewelry, purses and shoes. She was one of the most organized people in this world. Her smile and quick wit will be missed tremendously. We know she is safe in the arms of Jesus now.

Arlene was preceded in her passing by her parents Fred and Maggie; loving husband John; brothers Clifford and Irven Stohl; and sisters Loraine Stohl and Norma Holden.

Survivors of Arlene are her daughter Pam Storm and husband Jeff, of Custer; granddaughter Danielle Bilbruck and husband Tyler Braun, of Brooklyn, N.Y.; grandson Tyler Bilbruck and wife Samantha, of Hot Springs, S.D.; grandson Brody Storm, of Custer; sister Elaine Maas, of Billings, Mont.; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
