Mrs. Arleen June Wagner, 78, of Fort Plain, passed away on June 22, 2013, at Little Falls Hospital.
She was born on June 20, 1935, in the town of Palatine, daughter of the late Earl and Verna (Conklin) Stock. Arleen graduated from Fort Plain High School. She worked at Central National Bank in St. Johnsville before being united in marriage with Eugene Wagner at St. John's Reformed Church on November 3, 1956. Arleen and Eugene were best friends. Together they shared over 56 years of a very loving union.
Arleen was an active member of numerous organizations including the Women's Christian Association, Home Bureau, Birthday Girls, and the Treasurer of both Fort Klock Historical Society and the Ladies Guild of St. John's Reformed Church where she was also a member of the Consistory.
Arleen was generous, caring and compassionate. As a homemaker she especially liked to bake and was well known for her apple pie. She was an avid reader and enjoyed traveling as well as swimming and bowling. She loved small animals, dogs and cats but most of all she adored children, especially her own. She was a dearly loved mother and grandmother.
