April 27, 1938 — July 19, 2022

Arlene Waxman Ellenburg , 83 , was born to Joseph and Sara Waxman and passed away on July 19, 2022. She was integrally involved in the community throughout her life.

She also worked on Interfaith endeavors, NCJW Book Fair, Drive-A-Meal and senior visitation. In addition, she was the president of the CPA Auxiliary. An avid traveler, Arlene owned Ewald Travel Agency where she enjoyed helping others explore amazing places around the world. She is survived by her daughters Renee Tanner (Russell) and Sheri Rosenbaum. Her greatest pride and  joy in life was her role as “Mima” to her four grandsons with whom she had exceedingly close relationships even as they became adults. Cody Tanner, and Joshua, Matthew, & Zachary Rosenbaum were her entire world. She is also survived by her brother Neil Waxman (Pam), her sister Michelle Rogoff (Earle), several nephews/nieces,  and life-long friends Marty Slater and family.
