Arline M. (Ziegler) Lahn, 93, formerly of Grange Road in Wescosville, passed away on Friday, May 5, 2023 in Heather Glen Senior Living, Allentown, where she was a resident since 2020. She was the widow of Elmer C. Lahn, whom she married on March 17, 1951, and who died on September 19, 1998.

Born in and raised in Bowers, PA, Arline was a daughter of the late Paul D. and Mabel L.M. (Resch) Zeigler and attended Kutztown Area High School. She was a very faithful member of the United Church of Christ congregation of Ziegel's Union Church, Breinigsville, where she was a member of the church choir and volunteer. She could often be found in the church kitchen helping with luncheons, bazaars, and fundraisers. She was also a dedicated Meals on Wheels volunteer for 25 years. 

Arline was employed by the Kutztown Wallet Factory, Kutztown and Allentown Organ Company, Macungie, but for most of her life, was a homemaker who took great pride in raising her family and taking care of her home. She and her late husband enjoyed traveling the United States in their RV. They also enjoyed many miles spent together on their Gold Wing motorcycle. Arline even rode from Pennsylvania to Colorado in the custom-built sidecar that Elmer had purchased for her.
