Arlene C. Doney (Traub) entered heaven’s gates on August 28, 2022. She was born in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania on October 26, 1929.

Arlene resided in Upper Darby, PA for 52 years before moving to Wildwood Crest, NJ.

Doney, her stepchildren Michael and David Doney and her former spouse Walter J. Bonkoski. She is survived by her children Kathleen Holtzinger, Kenneth W. Bonkoski (wife Linda), Janice Gillin (husband: Michael “Ace”), and Paul W. Bonkoski (wife Mary Lynne), and stepchildren Kathleen Doney Grebb (husband: John) and James Doney, Jr.
