Arlene Ethelyn Dyer Weeks


North Conway, NH - Arlene Ethelyn Dyer Weeks, 91, of North Conway, NH and recently of Brownfield, Maine, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on August 3, 2019. She was born on October 19, 1927 in Presque Isle, Maine, to Alton L. and Eunice M. Dyer.
Arlene graduated from Washington State Normal Schools Teaching College in Machias, Maine June 11, 1948. She started her career as a student teacher in a one room schoolhouse and continued to teach over 50 years in six different states. Teaching was her passion and in that, she touched many children's lives. After retiring from teaching in Bryans Road, Maryland, she ended her career as a substitute at Kennett High School in her seventies. She loved her Lord and was a member of Journey Church. As well as teaching, she loved spending time with her grandchildren, going out for breakfast, reading, putting puzzles together, traveling abroad, knitting mittens, sewing costumes for her grandchildren, and having coffee at Dunkin Donuts with her dear friend Norman and others. She was kind and generous and always willing to help those she loved. In Arlene's own words, "I know I have been blessed with a wonderful life, growing up on the farm in the country with loving parents, three sisters and a brother, always there for me when I needed them, married for forty years to a loving husband, terrific father and grandfather. Who could ask for any more?"
Arlene lost the love of her life, Llewellyn Maurice Weeks when she was only sixty-one. She dedicated her life to her family and is survived by her sons Greg, Jeff, and Ricky and her daughter Jan, grandchildren Adam, Ryan, Courtney, Samantha, Savannah, Jordan, and 10 great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Weeks was my favorite teacher in elementary school. She was so caring and and such a wonderful lady. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
