Glenda Arlene Kellogg

Glenda Arlene Kellogg passed away surrounded by family and friends at Kavanagh House on August 14, 2019 in Des Moines, IA at the age of 59.

Arlene is survived by her siblings Linda Jacobs, Shirley Hindal, George Kellogg, Peggy Reseland, her children Kelly (Amy) Kellogg, Zachary (Lisa) Cort, Abbie (Chito) Cort, Allison (Jose) Mejia, and her 14 grandchildren Eric, Nico, Ketenia, Jonathan, Carolyn, coming soon Baby Theo, Trey, Emma, Gabriella, Christopher, Alex, Adileny, Nadia, and Giovani. As well as best friend and honorary sister Laurie (Bill and Family) Stout-Davis. Arlene is preceded in death by her parents Orville and Majorie Kellogg and her brother Orville Kellogg Jr.

Arlene was a kind and caring mother and grandmother who loved to craft and was a homemaker at heart. Arlene made a blanket for each of her grandchildren that will be cherished for years. She always put her kids first and would have done anything for them growing up. Arlene was always willing to help and listen to people without judgment. She also enjoyed “baking pies”, someone will have to continue the tradition of slightly burning the pies every holiday. She recently discovered the love of camping and sitting around the campfire. Arlene will be missed dearly.
