Arlene was born July 2, 1940 in Regina, and was raised in Burnaby, B.C. She moved with her family to Calgary, and later to Toronto, and then settled in Kamloops in 1992. Arlene took an active part in the community and organized events such as the Canada Summer Games and various national and international curling bonspiels. She was passionate about travel (including Africa and China), and in recent years she cruised with Ken to destinations such as Hawaii, Costa Rica, Panama, and Alaska. She was extraordinarily multi-talented and interesting, with many hobbies and many dear friends. Arlene loved animals, especially her cats. She was a crafter and cook, enjoyed lawn bowling and curling, undertook genealogical research on the Rostron and Coutts families, and knew the words to lots of songs. Arlene will be missed very much.
The family would like to especially thank Dr. James Howie, and Heather, for all of their help in the past months.
A gathering of family and friends to celebrate Arlene will be held on Friday, February 1, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. in the Tea Room at Schoening Funeral Services, 513 Seymour Street, Kamloops, B.C.
