MOULTON — Grace Arlene Carter, 89, of Moulton, passed away Sunday, March 17, 2013 at Golden Age Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center in Centerville.

 Arlene was born Oct. 20, 1923 in Omaha, Neb., the daughter of Yvonne and Mildred “Love” (Stirts) Albee. She graduated from Centerville High School. Arlene married William E. Carter on Jan. 10, 1943 in Linneus, Mo. He preceded her in death on Dec. 23, 2002.

After a brief period of employment as a telephone operator, she changed careers and went to work for Miladys, a clothing store located on the north side of the Centerville Square. Arlene worked many years in the retail clothing business.

Eventually, Bill and Arlene moved out of the city limits of Centerville by relocating to a family farm west of Moulton. Arlene lived on the farm up until Bill’s passing.

She lived in her apartment for several years before making the transition to Golden Age Care Center in Centerville.

Arlene loved taking shopping trips to Des Moines with family and friends. In her younger years she enjoyed dancing. She also enjoyed playing bridge. Arlene attended the Drake Avenue Christian Church in Centerville.
