In Memory Of
ARLENE VERDET (COOPER) ALDEN
Arlene was born to Mr & Mrs T R Cooper Jr Sept 19, 1934 on Catalina Island.
She was a direct descendent of Elizabeth Alden, one of the daughters of the May Flower's John Alden & Priscilla Mullens.
Arlene grew up to become a caring & responsible person & mother of two.
At the age of 19, she married John R Alden, a descendent of a son of John Alden & Priscilla Mullens.
On August 5, 1972, Arlene Alden was brutally shot 6+ times by her non-working husband, John Rogers Alden , in her home and
with her young children present. She was only 38 years old.
For his malicious crime, Mr. John R. Alden was required to spend only three years in jail, just another disgusting scumbag example
of our criminal justice system's failings. Since that time, Arlene's brother, Ted Cooper, has been actively engaged in support of victims family rights
and endorses the work of John Walsh and others similarly engaged.
