Arlene Dee Smyth Mills was born December 21, 1944, in Chehalis, Washington, to Art and Helena Smyth of Rainier, Washington. She received her wings on May 27, 2022, in Aberdeen, Washington, at the age of 77. She fought hard for the past two years.
Dee is survived by three daughters, Laura of Aberdeen, Washington, Brenda of Ransomville, New York, and Michele of Rochester, Washington; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephew. She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, one grandson, one granddaughter and her best friend.
Dee worked in numerous nursing homes and became friends with several residents; she liked what she did. In her earlier years, she was a bartender. She enjoyed going to the beach, trips to the casino, crocheting, and visiting with her family and friends. Dee was a mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, and friend to many. She will be missed, but never forgotten.
Per her last wishes, there will be no service.
