Mrs. Arlene Harris, 84, passed away peacefully after battling pancreatic cancer on Oct. 27, 2023 at Advent Health Hospice Care in Altamonte Springs.

Arlene was born on Oct. 14, 1939, in New York. She and her husband, Charles, later moved to Longwood, Fla., where she owned Affordable Tours and Travel. She sold the travel agency so she could retire and be with her husband who later passed away.

Her family grieves her loss but they take comfort knowing that Arlene and Charles are together once again. They always believed that family is important. Her love for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren had no limits.

Arlene is survived by her three daughters, Jodi Schiff, Randi Klingenberg, and Dawn Cohen. Her seven grandchildren — Jennifer Martin, Julie Dreihaup, Massin Cohen, Haydn Cohen, Morgyn Cohen, Sarah Klingenberg, and Jenna Klingenberg; her six great-grandchildren — Addison Dreihaup, Zoey Dreihaup, Carter Dreihaup, Camilla Martin, Brooks Martin, and Kennedy Martin.

The celebration of life was held Nov. 19, 2023, at DeGuspie Funeral Home, 9001 Orlando Ave., Maitland, Fla.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Arlene’s honor to the Cancer Foundation.
