NAUGATUCK — Miss Arline Elizabeth Lundin, 95, of Naugatuck, passed away early Friday morning, Dec. 20, 2013, at the Middlebury Convalescent Home.
Arline lived her entire life in the home in which she was born in Naugatuck, on Oct. 6, 1918, a daughter of the late Alfred E. and Emma C. (Ostrom) Lundin and was educated in the local school system. She was a graduate of Naugatuck High School, Class of 1936 and trained as an LPN at Waterbury Hospital, continuing her training at Columbian-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. She was a baby’s and children’s nurse, caring especially for newborns in and around Fairfield County and the Waterbury and Naugatuck area.
