Arline was born August 7, 1945, to Thomas Leo Golden, Jr. and Margie Maley Aspelmeyer in Baltimore, MD.

Arline was a long time member of the American Legion Auxiliary, with the mission of supporting the American Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who served. Additionally, Arline was an advocate for truck drivers, her husband Fred having been a long haul truck driver himself. She was a lifetime member of the United States Transportation Alliance (USTA). USTA is a grassroots nonprofit created by truck drivers to help develop common sense rules and regulations with the vast experience from drivers and independent drivers with the hopes of making the roads a safe place for everyone.

Arline was preceded in death by her husband, Fred Bennett. She leaves behind her children, Chris (Vera) Wyatt of Carlisle, PA, Bea (George Fallar) Wyatt of Cave Creek, AZ, Jerry Wyatt of Glendale, AZ, Rob Nicholson of Hopatcong, NJ, Bryan (Kim) Bennett of Mt Juliet, TN, and devoted daughter, Jennifer Powell of Lancaster, OH, who provided so much care to Arline in her long illness. In addition to her children, she leaves behind 15 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Arline was the third child of Margie’s ten children and is survived by her sisters, Trudy (Steve) Noonan, Margie (Ed) Brown, Dotty (James) Payne, and Linda Trenor; and her brother, Stanley Golden.

Three of her brothers preceded her in death, Thomas, Lawrence and Melvin; as did her youngest sister, Phyllis Newman; and her grandson, Tyler Nicholson.
