Arline "Arlene" Dezso Kobylanski, 87, passed away peacefully Sunday, April 16th, at home while holding her grandson Garrett's hand after being surrounded by family and friends. She was the daughter of Pauline Madsen Dezso Nephew and Alexander Dezso. She is survived by her brother Donald, her brother "Butch" and his wife Jeannette, and her sister-in-law Anita and their families, as well as her beloved cousin Carol. She is also survived by her 5 children, Daniel Kobylanski, Gail Easton, Janice(Mark) Milbrath, Lynn(John) Saitta and Laura Kobylanski. Arlene couldn't help but boast about her 9 grandchildren, Dana(Pete), Dan(Ioana), Jessyca, Ian, Christopher, Michelle(Asa), Michael(Ashlee), Jennifer and Garrett as well as her 12 great grandchildren, countless nieces, nephews, and cousins, and her granddog Kota. Arlene was predeceased by her sister "Tata", brothers "Billy" and Robert and her daughter-in-law Georgie, all whom she loved so very much. Arlene, "Rinky, Ma, Rosie, Just Grandma, Aunt Rinky, Grandma Rinky, Sweetie Pie" was mom, grandma, and friend to so many. She filled a space in so many people's hearts and the hole that is left right now can only be filled with our loving memories of her. In the early years, she loved going for rides to find lady slippers hidden in the woods. She could spot them and 4 leaf clovers like no one else could. She loved her rides to the shore and eating at Skipper's. Her favorite trip was the annual spring family and extended family vacation to Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Arlene enjoyed watching the NY Yankees but her greatest love was hockey, beginning with watching her grandchildren play, then the Hartford Whalers. Arlene was a member of First Congregational Church of South Windsor. She graduated from East Hartford High School and worked for the Hartford Insurance Group. She leaves behind many loving friends she met on her lifelong journey. The family would like to thank the loving care from Dr. Gorusu and the oncology staff at Starling Physicians. A very special thank you to cousin Cynthia for her love and guidance through the most difficult time. Her family will receive friends on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, from 5-8 p.m., at the Samsel & Carmon Funeral Home, 419 Buckland Rd., South Windsor. A Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, April 20, 2017, 11 a.m., at the funeral home. Burial will follow at Center Cemetery in South Windsor.
