Remembering Arlene Marion Pierce

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Arlene Marion Pierce, a beloved sister, wife, mother, aunt and grandmother.  Arlene peacefully departed this world on July 22, 2023, surrounded by her loving family.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Thena and Louie Peters; husband, Paul Pierce Sr.; daughter, Paula Suzanne Pierce and grandson, Chance Gregory.  She is survived by daughter, Carla Lucero and husband, Ronnie; son, Paul Pierce Jr. and wife, Mary; grandchildren, Landon Lucero, Jackson Pierce, and Molly Pierce, and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.

Born on December 23, 1946 in Pleasant Hill, LA, Arlene was the epitome of kindness, love and generosity.  She lived a life devoted to her family and brightened the lives of all who knew her. Arlene’s warmth and compassion extended far beyond the walls of her home, touching the lives of countless friends and acquaintances who were fortunate enough to cross paths with her.

Arlene’s heart was captured by her beloved spouse, Paul, whom she shared 56 wonderful years of marriage with. Together, they built a strong and enduring bond, exemplifying the true meaning of love and partnership. Their love was an inspiration to everyone around them and a testament to the power of commitment and devotion.

As an excellent homemaker, Arlene’s nurturing spirit was evident in the welcoming environment she created for her family. Her home was a place of laughter and comfort.  She poured her heart and soul into preparing meals that brought joy and contentment to all who sat at her table.

Arlene will be deeply missed, but her legacy will live on in the hearts of all who were fortunate to know her. She leaves behind cherished memories and countless lives touched by her presence.
