Arlene C. Strack was born on November 2nd, 1933 in Long Prairie, MN to the late Rudy and Isabelle (Katterhagen) Strack. She grew up in Long Prairie, MN, attending a Catholic school until her family moved to a farm outside of Long Prairie where she then attended District #31 Country School and completed her education. In 1951, her parents purchased the Randall Cafe where she worked and spent most of her teenage years. There, she met George Turner, and on June 2nd, 1953, George and Arlene were united in marriage at the Randall Catholic Church. They then moved to St. Paul, MN where Arlene began working at Minnesota Mining. George and Arlene moved back to Randall, MN where they raised their family and put in many hours on the family farm. In addition to farming, Arlene and George had the Turner’s Lunchwagon, which allowed them to serve their homemade food for numerous auctions around the community. Arlene was a loving mother that raised her five children and always made sure the house was in order and the lawn was cut. She enjoyed growing flowers, playing cards and going to bingo. She loved to have friends and family over for gatherings and was always ready for Happy Hour.
