- Arlene 'Lee' J. Jankunas passed away peacefully February 4, 2017, at Mease Countryside Hospital, in Safety Harbor, FL. She was born March 13, 1943, in Elizabeth, NJ, to Henry and Dorothy Lihou. She lived in Maine from 1975 to 1990 and disliked the cold and snow the entire time. She moved back to New Jersey and later moved to Florida to live with her sister where she could stay warm. Arlene's life was all about her children and her pets. She would do anything for them. She was constantly spoiling her grandchildren and grand pets. She always put others needs in front of her own. In fact, she was even willing to spend a few winters back in Maine to spend time with her kids and grandchildren despite her dislike of the cold. She loved to read, play solitaire, do puzzles and smoke cigarettes.
Arlene is survived by sisters, Joan Smyth and Brenda Henderson; her children, Robert and wife, Karen, Kevin and wife, Stacey, and Steven; 4 grandchildren, James, Kyle, Shaelyn, Alex; as well as grand-pets of Jinx, Nala, and Tiger.
