Arlene P. Tatro, 93, died January 26, 2022, in Hanover, NH. She was born in Bellows Falls, VT, on November 5, 1928, the daughter of Arthur A. and Charlotte (MacLean) Frenier Parker. Arlene was raised in Bellows Falls, graduated from Bellows Falls High School in 1946, graduated from Keene Teachers College in 1950 and received her master’s degree in Education from Boston University in 1957. She lived in Claremont from 1965 to 2014. Arlene then moved to Wheelock Terrace Assisted Living in Hanover, NH, to be closer to family.
