Arlette was born on December 7, 1925 in Dubuque, Iowa, the daughter of Edmund and Barbara (Boyer) Meyer. She attended grade school at Sacred Heart and graduated from Immaculate Conception Academy. After graduating, she worked for Midwest Lumber Company and General Dry Battery. On May 28, 1949, Arlette married William “Tubb” Frederick at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. The two moved to Cassville, Wisconsin in 1958 and became members of St. Charles parish, in addition to being very active in the annual “Twin-O-Rama” over the years.
Arlette was employed by Marquette Transportation and retired in 1986 after 22 years of service. After retiring, Bill & Arlette moved back to Dubuque in 1990, where they became members of Resurrection parish.
Arlette enjoyed spending time with her family, loved her many winter trips to southern Florida, enjoyed playing bridge and euchre, and was an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers, Wisconsin Badgers, and Iowa Hawkeyes (you read that right…fan of Cubs/Brewers and Badgers/Hawkeyes – mom was very open-minded).
Surviving is her husband, William “Tubb” Frederick of Dubuque, IA; her children Stephen (Karen) Frederick of Kennesaw, GA, Barbara (John) Schwarz of Kenosha, WI, James Frederick of Cassville, WI and Mark (Kari) Frederick of Cuba City, WI; her grandchildren Matthew Frederick, Jennifer (Matthew) Hampton, Margaret Frederick; Anthony (Stephanie) Schwarz, Nicholas (Sheena) Schwarz, and John Schwarz; Paul Frederick, Anna Frederick (fiancé’ Jacob Brox), John Frederick and Kyle Frederick; 10 great grandchildren; and her brother Gerald Meyer of Dubuque, IA.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Jeffrey, her brother Leonard Meyer, and sister-in-law Jeanne Meyer.
Memorials may be given to Hills & Dales or Resurrection Church.
Arlette’s family wishes to extend a special thank you to the nurses and staff at Stonehill Care Center and Hospice of Dubuque for their compassion and care.
The Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Westview Funeral Home and Crematory is in charge of arrangements.
