In Memory Of 

                                   ARLENE VERDET (COOPER) ALDEN

                                                                                                                                                                                   Back to Main


    [September 19, 1934       to     August 5, 1972]                                                                            


Arlene was born to Mr & Mrs T R Cooper Jr  Sept 19, 1934 on Catalina Island.

She was a direct descendent of Elizabeth Alden, one of the daughters of the May Flower's John Alden & Priscilla Mullens.



Arlene grew up to become a caring & responsible person & mother of two.

At the age of 19, she married John R Alden, a descendent of a son of John Alden & Priscilla Mullens.


On August 5, 1972, Arlene Alden was brutally shot 6+ times by her non-working husband, John Rogers Alden , in her home and

with her young children present. She was only 38 years old.


For his malicious  crime, Mr. John R. Alden was required to spend only three years in jail, just another disgusting scumbag example

of our criminal justice system's failings. Since that time, Arlene's brother, Ted Cooper, has been actively engaged in support of victims family rights

and endorses the work of John Walsh and others similarly engaged.
