SOUTHBURY - Arlene Eisenbach Nowak passed away on December 18, 2023 at Danbury Hospital. Arlene dedicated her life to her family and friends. Once you were a friend of Arlene's you could be assured, she would take care of you forever.
She was known to drive all her friends at the Village around town when they needed a ride. She was at the Southbury Food Center, the Southbury Senior Center, the Woodbury Senior Center and eventually made her way to the Southbury Food Bank where she is fondly remembered. Anywhere someone needed to go, she offered herself unconditionally. If you needed to know where to go, you didn't need a GPS, you needed Arlene.
She loved to play bingo, mahjong, and poker with her friends. She loved to travel by car and by train. Her favorite place to be was by the water most notably the Jersey Shore. She looked forward to her family vacation down there every year.
Arlene made sure she went to every baseball game her son Mike coached throughout his 28 years as head coach at Pomperaug High School. You would always see her sitting in her chair right behind the backstop cheering him on no matter if it was a home game or away game.
She loved to cook and bake and made the best brisket in town. Dinners and holidays with her were always special. She loved to have her family with her and surrounding her. Nothing made her happier.
She raised her family in the Sandy Hook section of Newtown for over 30 years. She was owner/proprietor of Sandy Hook Singer Sewing Center and then relocated to Newtown Shopping Center and changed the name to Newtown Sewing Center. Everyone in Newtown knew her and loved her. Her customers looked forward to the holidays when she would bake cheese tarts, rugalach, cream cheese brownies and strudel for all of them to enjoy.
Her beloved family consisted of her three sons Ronald (Donna), Michael (Kimberly) and David Eisenbach; her grandchildren David, Daniel, Sarah (Birardi), Jessica, and Jeffrey Eisenbach , son-in-law Stefan Birardi and two step grandchildren, Brittany and Cory Redenz. She was predeceased by her parents Lilian and Philip Koslow and her sister Marilyn Moskowitz. She also leaves behind her brother-in-law Gerry Moskowitz and two nieces Hope Magnuson and June Dimaio. There wasn't a day that went by that she didn't chat with her family or dear friends Joe and Alice. She went everywhere with her home phone and cell phone just in case any one of them called or if she needed to call them. She was a good friend to all in her circle at Heritage Village.
The family would like to thank her wonderful caregivers Rose and Maria. Their kindness and compassion went beyond what anyone could ask for. To leave a message of remembrance, please visit www.CarpinoCares.com.
