Arleen was born on October 6, 1934 in Castle Dale, Utah to Howard and Pearl Belt. She married Arvill B. Pace on March 22, 1958. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple on Dec. 9, 1968.
Mom passed away on Feb. 22, 2014 due to complications of Louie Bodie Disease. She was surrounded by her family. Mom loved her family; they were the joy of her life. She loved to tease and spend time with them. Mom loved holidays, spending time at the cabin and Iris’s. Early on Mother loved raising her farm animals and sharing them with her grandkids. She was even known to take a pig on a leash to show and tell. Mom was a talented quilter, cook, pie and candy maker.

Also two sons, Terry and Rusty Pace; daughters, Susie (Gary) Riley and Cheryle (Brian) Shields; her loving sister, Sharon Belt; brothers, Damon (Paula) Cornish, Chad Belt, Verl (Janet) MacFarlane, Deloy (Terri) MacFarlane; sister-in-law, Adele Belt, 26 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
