The Life and Legacy of our Tournament Honoree
Arlene served the Washington DC area as deputy corporation counsel for the Family Services Division with responsibility for abuse and neglect, child support and domestic violence cases. She served on numerous specialized boards and commissions. Arlene was president of the Eastern Region Interstate Child Support Association. She served on the Mayor’s Advisory Committee for Child Abuse and Neglect, the Superior Court’s Family Task Force, and the Mayor’s working group to establish a children’s advocacy center.
Arlene, along with Dr. Lavendar Orr of the D.C. Children’s Hospital and U.S. Attorney Patricia Riley, founded Safe Shores. Safe Shores provides intervention hope, and healing to children and families affected by abuse and trauma in the District. This center created a multidisciplinary team approach to forensic investigations of child abuse and neglect under executive order of Mayor Sharon Pratt-Kelly. After retiring from Superior Court as a magistrate judge, Arlene continued her involvement with the center as a member of the board of directors. Also after retirement, Arlene continued to actively participate in the Mental Health Association of the District of Columbia, the Interdenominational Church Ushers Association, the Potomac Valley Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, the Judicial Council of the Washington Bar Association, Order of the Eastern Star, Imperial Court Daughters of Isis, and the Red Hatters. She was a lifelong member of Mount Carmel, where she was active in the community outreach ministry, taught Junior Church with her sister, Brenda Durrington, edited the church newsletter and was a senior usher. Arlene tutored adults and regularly volunteered at N Street Village, where she assisted residents who battled both mental illness and substance abuse. She also developed a partnership with Walker-Jones Elementary School to produce the Trial of Gold E Locks, which helped very young children understand court processes. Arlene received the Howard University School of Divinity’s Pastor’s Award for her years of service to the community.
Arlene passed away peacefully on October 26, 2011 at the age of 72. She will always be remembered as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and aunt. She was also a caring friend, teacher and mentor to all who came to know her.
