It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Arlene Langman on August 27, 2022.
Arlene will be lovingly remembered by her brothers Ira and Alan, husband of 53 years, Marc; children, Bennett (Megan), Jessica (Jeremy), and the source of her life’s greatest joy, grandchildren, Andrew, Leah, Lindsay, and Eli.
She received her bachelor’s degree and Master’s Degree in Teaching from Penn State University. She taught for over 30 years, spending most of her career in Philadelphia Public Schools. A passionate educator who loved her students, she believed in being a teacher, mom, and advocate for every student that came into her classroom.
The only thing Arlene loved more than teaching was her family. Whether it was celebrating the family’s own unique holiday traditions, eating at the Palm or traveling to Disney, she relished any opportunity to have an adventure with her husband and children. Her affection also extended to the dogs she owned throughout her life, as for many years, a Collie (from the brilliant Mitzi to the aptly named Latke) was never far from her side.
Arlene also had an infinite wellspring of strength and willpower that continues to sustain her family after her passing. She lived with Multiple Sclerosis for over 30 years, never once allowing it to limit her. She was an example to her entire family, constantly inspiring them to triumph over any adversity they faced.
While she will be missed, Arlene leaves behind a legacy of education, toughness, and unconditional love. Her memory will always be a blessing and treasured gift.
A funeral service will be held Wednesday, August 31, 3:30 PM at Goldsteins' Rosenberg's Raphael Sacks Suburban North, 310 2nd Street Pike, Southampton PA 18966. Interment is private.
