She is survived by siblings Ken, Irene, Cecilia, Dennis (Bonnie) and in-laws Steffie, Pat, Edna (Ralph) and many nieces and nephews.
Arlene was predeceased by her husband of 47 years, Irvin, as well as numerous family members and friends that always held a special place in her heart.
Arlene was born on September 18, 1932 in Winnipeg but spent her whole life in the Brokenhead area until she married the love of her life on September 15, 1951 and settled on the family homestead in Golden Bay. Arlene was the hardest worker, whether it was on the farm, in her house, her restaurant jobs or her countless volunteer positions on the Beausejour Hospital Board, at church, the craft show and many other events which always involved delicious food!
Arlene’s wishes were fulfilled as she was able to remain in the home she built with her Irvin until the very end. Special thanks to Dr. Schmidt, the staff at the Beausejour Hospital and Rhonda and staff from Sobering Funeral Chapel for all the wonderful care and compassion you provided to Arlene and the family
