After graduating from high school, Arlette worked at AB Dick in Chicago for a while. She was there when World War II ended which was a memorable experience for her.

Arlette served as an Election Judge for Roanoke Township for 35 years; delivered Meals on Wheels in the Roanoke & Benson areas & was a volunteer at the Roanoke Apostolic Christian Nursing Home.
