Arlene Williams was a Christian television personality, chef, and evangelist on Cornerstone Television Network. The show gives viewers simple recipes and cooking hints along with Arlene preparing the food and giving directions on how to make it. Arlene died on September 20, 2017. A native of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, Arlene started cooking when she was nine years old. Born into a Pastor's home, she learned very early what it meant to entertain and prepare good tasty meals for very special guests. Her mother taught her well and encouraged her to “try” recipes that seemed difficult. Much patience and love on her mother’s part turned Arlene into an accomplished cook, something her father and brothers benefited from greatly.
