Arlene was the daughter of Aaron and Sarah Sheetz Hoffman, and born on her parents farm east of Enterline, PA, on June 28, 1914; baptized at St. Paul's German Reformed Church in Enterline on August 13, 1914. She married Albert Chubb Lyter, and the couple eloped to Alexandria, Huntington County, PA on September 5, 1938, for a private ceremony. They never told their parents till weeks later. They lived their entire life in Halifax, primarily living in the residence of Aaron and Sarah Hoffman, and caring for them until their deaths. Arlene worked for the Willits Shoe Company in Halifax for 47 years before retiring in 1977. In her retirement years she made countless homemade bed quilts, and wonderful home cooked dinners for all of her relatives and friends. Arlene and 'Abe" were always hosting holiday celebrations every year after the Halifax 30th of May and Halloween parades. The couple were held in the highest esteem by the citizens of Halifax. They were stable pillars of the community, always to be counted on. Twice they were honored by the town as their "Grand Marshalls" for the 1969 Halifax Susqui-Centennial celebration, and again for the 1994 Halifax Bi-Centennial celebration. They helped to found the local Halifax Historical Society, and over the years made countless contibutions, including artifacts, and monetary gifts to the HAHS (Halifax Area Historical Society).
