Arlene Ann (Sluiter) Seeger, 89, of Dumont, Iowa, passed away Friday, March 9, 2018, at the Franklin Country View Nursing Facility in Hampton, Iowa.

She was born March 24, 1928, in Dumont, Iowa, to Adolph and Hattie (Hartman) Sluiter. Arlene attended Gospel Hall in Aredale, Iowa, where she received Jesus Christ as her savior in April 1935. She graduated from Dumont High School in 1945 and attended Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls from 1945 to 1946. Arlene was united in marriage to Harold Seeger on May 22, 1948, in Dubuque, Iowa. To this union three children were born; Dennis, Douglas and Peggy. Arlene taught kindergarten to fifth grade at Bennezette Township rural school from 1946 to 1948. She then taught at Bristow Junior High School from 1948 to 1949. From 1950 to 1966, Arlene took a break from teaching to raise her family and work on the farm. In 1967, she returned to the classroom as a teaching assistant at the Dumont Community School until 1994. Arlene also had a career in direct sales working out of her home for World Book Encyclopedia and Princess House Crystal. She enjoyed her flowers, gardening, traveling and playing cards.

Arlene is survived by her son Dennis (Vicki) Seeger, daughter Peggy (Harold) Lovin, grandchildren Lynsay (Bryan) Candee, McKynsay (Matthew) Vanderpan, Melissa (Jonathan) Orns, and Kyle (Rhonda) Lovin, great-grandchildren Jack, Clara, Tysan, Cora, Kolten, Craig and one due in July, brother Burdeen (Carolyn) Sluiter, sister-in-law Betty Fink, along with many nieces and nephews.

Arlene was like a second Mom to my sister Carol & I growing up. Our sympathies to you, Dennis & Peg, and your families!

Harold & Peggy, Sincere sympathy to you in the loss of your Mom. It's always hard to find you're now the oldest generation! Thinking of you with love and prayers. Charlene Hanson - Gordon Brocka

Arlene was such a good help to me in the classroom and as a trusted friend during my early teaching days. Our daughter Meredith was born near midnight the day before her birthday and she always teased me that I could have waited just a few minutes so they could share birthdays as she and Reid did. We had a lot of fun together and I'm glad she's no longer suffering. I'm pretty sure there are no recess duties in heaven! My deepest sympathy to her family--she always filled me in on the latest for her kids and grandkids whenever I saw her.

So sorry to hear of Arlene's death. I have lots of fond memories of gatherings and games played south of the driveway on she and Harold's Farm. My sympathy to Dennis and Peg and their families. Prayers for comfort in rough times. dkramer
