November 27, 1938 – April 30, 2021

It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the passing of Arline on April 30, 2021 in Vernon, BC. She was born on November 27, 1938 in Delburne, AB. Some of her fondest memories were growing up on Pa’s farm. Her family moved to Acme in 1955 where she graduated. Arline attended secretarial school (Henderson’s) and after graduating from there, she got a job at Deerhorne Institute in Red Deer where she met Arie. They married in 1960 and had four children: Kerry, Trevor, Faith and Mark. They moved to BC in 1968 and enjoyed time spent at the cabin. Arline was supportive of Arie and the family and always had a sense of community. She was involved with 4H and social functions; later she was a part of kinettes, the Legion, boy scouts, girl guides and various other committees and groups.

Arline is remembered by her sons: Kerry, Trevor (Denise); daughter: Faith; daughters-in-law: Donna (Bob) and Pam; grandchildren: Andrew (Kyela), Angela (Don), Christopher, Ryan, Orry, Skylar, Riley, Dustin (Christine), Kara (Curtis); great grandchildren: Eamon, Kairi and Axton; sisters: Roberta, Teresa and Debbie; brothers Larry and Ricky. She was predeceased by her husband Arie; son Mark; and parents: Robert Bell and Dulcie Tyess.
