Arline was born to the late Albert and Katie (Holzer) Filer on June 26, 1926. She grew up and attended school in Leroy, Texas and graduated from West High School. She married the late Johnnie Holub on January 28, 1945 in Tours, Texas. They moved to Waco shortly after and went into the small grocery store business with her parents. She later worked at Owens Illinois Glass Plant and Montgomery Ward, from which she retired.
She was a loving and caring mother and grandmother to her four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She was very dedicated to her faith and her beloved parish, St. Louis Catholic Church. Arline cherished her relationships with her family and friends. Growing up as an only child, she thoroughly enjoyed the Holub siblings she gained in marriage and considered them her brothers and sisters. Arline was known for her talents and has left many remembrances of crocheting, knitting, needlepoint, cross-stitch, and paintings for her family and friends to treasure. She also enjoyed doing puzzles, word finds, gardening and bird watching.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Johnnie Holub, son, Dennis Holub; and grandson, Steven Holub.
She is survived by her children, Larry Holub and wife, Gayle, of Waco, Beverly Dobiyanski and husband, Jerry, of Lake Limestone, and Eileen Kubala and husband, Charles, of McGrego; grandchildren, Scott Holub and wife, Elaine, Vicki Dobiyanski, Christopher Kubala, Kristen Holub, Dustin Holub, Brian Dobiyanski and wife, Kayla, and Emily Kubala.

The family would like to thank the staff and volunteers at St. Catherine's Center for their dedicated service, care, and compassion, where she resided for the past 18 months.
Memorials may be made to St. Louis Catholic Church or Providence Hospice.
