Heinemann, Arlene

Born on January 27, 1938, Lillian Arlene Heinemann, was the youngest child of Walter L. Sullivan, Jr. and Lillian J. Sullivan. She died at the age of 79, in Irving, Texas on February 25, 2017. She was the loving wife of Warren W. Heinemann for over 53 years and mother of two, Glenn Mitchell of Frisco, Texas and William Stacy Heinemann of Fort Worth, Texas, for which she gave her unconditional love.

Arlene was born in Annandale, Virginia and was raised with her four siblings, Roland, Theresa, Joyce and Walter just outside of Manassas, Virginia. After marrying Warren, newly hired by GTE, they moved first to Durham, North Carolina then Fairfield, Connecticut and then to Irving, Texas where they have resided for the last 37 years. She loved to cook for her family, walk at the Irving Mall with friends and keeping her mind sharp by working the daily crossword puzzle.

Her parents, and four siblings precede her in death. Her loving family, former daughter-in-law, Cynthia K. Heinemann and many nieces and nephews, family and loving friends survive her. Arlene will be remembered fondly for her generous and giving spirit.

At Arlene’s request, the funeral and burial will be a private event for her immediate family. Expressions of sympathy may be made in the form of a donation to the American Liver Foundation.

    She was a very special lady and I am so pleased that I got to know her through our walks at the mall.

  2. Jo and Pat Jennings says:

    We both are so very crushed over the passing of our dear friend and walking buddy Arlene. She was such a caring, kind, loving person with the best dry sense of humor! She would crack us up! For years, we enjoyed walking with her and afterwards having coffee to start the day. We miss Arlene so much. And our hearts go out to her family. She loved them dearly.

  3. Janet Hodges Sparrow says:

    Arlene and I became friends because our husbands worked together at GTE. We lived on Mason Road and Warren and Arlene lived on Guess Road. Later in life both families lived in Connecticut. And after that we all lived in Texas. Arlene and I remained close for many years going out for lunch and movies many times. She was the best friend I ever had no matter where we two lived. She will be greatly missed by all who ever knew her. I wish the best for Warren and the two sons

My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!
