Arline Daley Obituary

Arline P. Daley, nee Johnston, age 94, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 19, 2023. Arline was born in the Inwood section of New York City and resided there until moving to Ocean Beach, NJ in the early 70's.

Arline was loved by all who knew her. Known for her dazzling blue eyes and her infectious laugh, she always had a smile for everyone. She enjoyed being with her family and friends and for the last few years loved being in Florida for the winter. She enjoyed watching her great-grandchildren playing sports....Tyler at soccer and Declan and Chase in baseball. Arline loved to watch the NY Yankees but even more so, loved to watch tennis. She had her favorite players and would watch them religiously.

Arline was an active member of St. Pio of Pietrelcina Parish and the Deborah Heart Foundation where she volunteered with fund raising efforts. Lastly, she loved her Ocean Beach II community where she was very active and willing to help wherever she could. She was the "lady who drew the birdie on your hand at the ice cream socials"; volunteered to check in attendees at the Annual Memorial Day Picnics; pancake breakfasts; membership meetings, etc. for many, many years.

Arline was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great grandmother. Preceded in death by her parents, Clifford Johnston and Jessie, nee Fisher and her loving husband, Patrick Daley. Arline is survived by her children; son, Michael Davis and his wife, Catherine; and her daughter Barbara (McGivney) and her husband, Thomas Reilly. She is also survived by her eight grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.

The family would like to acknowledge and thank Angela Dunda for the loving, dedicated care she gave to Arline. Angela has become part of the family and we will be forever grateful.
