Obituary for Jean Arkin

Jean Arkin was born on July 28, 1933 in Chicago to William and Eleanor (nee Bing) Camphausen. She died Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at Autumn Leaves in Arlington Heights.

 Jean worked as an executive secretary for High School District 214. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church of Arlington Heights where she supported the homeless by making meals for the PADS program. An avid gardener, Jean spent hours planting flowers each spring. Her boundless love was spread among all creatures, especially her beloved dachshunds, Blitzen, Max and Mozart.  Quick with a hug, Jean loved spending time with friends and family, especially her grandchildren, and was loved by all. She will be remembered for her sense of humor and love of puns.
