Arrington was born Oct. 4, 1932, in Ogden, Utah. She was a 30-year county resident who moved from Redlands.

Arrington was a secretary for many years, working for various companies and organizations.

She was a member and past chairwoman for the City of Angels Silky Terrier Club, and the Ventura County Dog Fanciers Assn. She also cared for four silky terriers--Katrina, Hoss, Sean and Pip.

She is survived by two sons, Robert S. Rieke of Carina, Australia, and Ronald E. Rieke of Redlands; a daughter, Pamela K. Martin of Yucaipa; her mother, Leone Hussey of Mesa, Ariz.; a sister, Raedelle Mundy of Grand Junction, Colo., and three grandchildren.

A family memorial service will be held at a later date.
