GUSTAVUS, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – V. Arlene “Bing” Logan, age 97, went home to the Lord on Tuesday, July 14, 2020.
Born on September 14, 1922, she was a 1940 graduate of Gustavus High School and attended the Ohio State University.
On January 15, 1944, she married John Dwight Logan and together they farmed and raised their brood of boys.
A lifelong member of the Gustavus Federated Church, Arlene sang in the choir, taught Sunday School and Bible School and held regular Bible Studies up until her last year. She was a part of the Community Aide, baking and cooking for hundreds of funerals over the years, supporting others in their grief. Arlene was active in and often the organizer of hundreds of community activities, notably the Church Bazaar, July 4th Parade and talent show.
She was a founder of the Gustavus Mother’s Club, a member of the U & I Club (a 100-year old literary society), a council member of the Trumbull County Farm Bureau and a member of the Farmer’s Union and Gustavus Grange.
