She was born in Ft. Worth, Texas on April 7, 1928 to
Eleanor (Pudsy) and Arlin Miller and had one brother, W. Lee Miller.
Arline was fun loving and caught the eye of Lee Amos when she was 17. He was 20, from Virginia, and serving in the Army Air Corp as a pilot during WW11. They were married in 1945 at the First Methodist Church in downtown Fort Worth just after Arline graduated from Paschal High School.
Her home was filled with fun, love and great cooking!
She and Lee were blessed with a happy and long marriage of 74 years.
Arline enjoyed life making clothes for her sons and grandchildren. She became quite adept at making Power Ranger and Batman costumes for her grandsons and a bunny suit and a beautiful princess outfit for her granddaughter. In addition, Arline made many of her grandchildren’s baby clothes and pajamas.
Arline was happy when the dance music started. She loved to dance throughout her life and was the first one on the dance floor when the music started.
She was a devoted mother and military wife. She and her family were based in Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Texas twice, California, and Germany before settling in Shalimar, Florida to raise their teenage sons. Her husband, Lee Amos, retired as a Lt. Colonel in the US Air Force in Shalimar.
She loved her caregivers and friends at Oakmont Senior home very much and tried to make people smile even in her diminished health. She was well known there as the dancing lady.
Arline loved the Lord and was a very dedicated Christian. She studied Scripture her entire life and shared her faith and the “Good News” with all. She prayed for her loved ones daily.
She is survived by her two sons, Stephen and Scott Amos, and their spouses Linda and Ellen respectively. In addition, she is survived by her four grandchildren, Matthew and Benjamin Amos, Katy, Texas, Jill and Chris Amos, New Providence, NJ and his wife Trish, now living in Santa Monica, CA and her sister in law Jackie Miller and her brother Roy Summers.
There will be a private Memorial Service at a future date held at the Houston National Cemetery.
