Arlene Rahoczy, 74, died on Jan. 10, 2014, after a brief illness at Danbury Hospital with both of her daughters by her side. She was the wife of Endre Rahoczy.

Arlene was born on August 24, 1939 in Danbury, Connecticut, the daughter of Adam and Mary (Eighme) Gereg. She was a longtime resident of Great Barrington, MA, and Ocala, FL, recently moving to The Watermark at East Hill in Southbury, CT, to be closer to family, this past August.

Arlene was a longtime personal care attendant prior to her retirement and was also the proprietor of the former Acorn Acres Motel in Great Barrington, MA, which her family ran for ten years. She was a graduate of Danbury High School and received her Nursing Assistant certification from Berkshire Community College. Arlene enjoyed volunteering with various local organizations including Saint Peter’s Church, Tuesday Morning Club and Great Barrington Kennel Club. Arlene was also involved with raising and showing Doberman Pinchers. She took great pleasure in gardening and travelling, but her greatest joy was spending time with her family, especially with her two granddaughters. She was a long time communicant of Saint Peter’s Church in Great Barrington.

Besides her spouse of 53 years, she leaves her two daughters, Michelle Bettigole and her husband, Edward, of Southbury, CT; Andrea Gladu and her husband Sylvain, of North Reading, MA; her granddaughters, Jade Bettigole and Chloe Gladu; her sisters, Sandra Gereg of Brookfield, CT and Elizabeth Metz of Ocala, Florida; and her niece, Vallie Metz of Winter Park, FL.

A Mass in celebration of her life will be held at a future date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Companion Pet Rescue, 5 Starwood Drive, Jackson, TN 38305, from where her dear dog friends at The Watermark, Daphne and Pepe, were adopted.
