I know Ann, Margot and Ali through several camp summers. I am deeply saddened to hear your parents passing. Many years ago my mother and I were visiting Savannah and paid a call on your family. Your mother was so kind and gracious to welcome us into your home to see all the wonderful art and a short visit. And we got a great restaurant recommendation! My heartfelt sympathy to all of your family in this difficult time. I know you will be blessed with cherished memories and find comfort in their external love

All my life, the Tenebaum family has been part of my life. My dad, Jake Dunn worked for Chatham since the day I was born. I babysat for the kids when I was 10 years old and Arnold gave me my first job at Chatham during the summer and during my senior year. I have never met such an accomplished family that gave so much to the community. I was at my sons graduation from SCAD for his Masters and who got their PhD's? Arnold and Lorlee! They made sure that SCAD had opened their amazing art gallery. In later years when my father was confined to a nursing home, the only people that came to see him besides immediate family were Arnold and Sheldon. I will forever have a special place in my heart for them. Every one else forgot my dad except for the two of them. Rest in peace Arnold and Lorlee. I never saw you apart on this Earth and know you will be together forever now. My heartfelt sympathy to the Tenenbaum family.


My heart goes out to the Tenenbaum family in the loss of Lorlee, and her soulmate, Arnold. From my first week in Savannah in 1980, Lorlee stepped into my life as friend, advisor, and colleague - and she never left. Arnold was right there beside her, cheering us on, all the way. I am so grateful to have been part of the large community that loved them both and knew their loyalty, generosity, and compassion over the decades. How I will miss them!

Two dear and kind souls that will be truly missed.

So sorry for your loss.

My sincere sympathy to the Tenenbaum Family. While watching the video and hearing the tributes to Arnold & Lorlee more specifically Margo’s Comments made me smile and was a reminder of your Grandmother Genevieve. When Brian mentioned his cousins Ginger, Dina & Mark Shark I watched those kids grow up! And remembering one summer Lorlee visiting Bismarck with Margo, Brian & Alli. Additionally Mrs Shark with a smile, referring to Alli who was perhaps 3 or 4 years old as “that one”
