Richard Wasylynchuk -

Mom, wife, sister, aunt, friend and artist we say goodbye. September 27th, 2012, Arlene lost her second battle with cancer. We will never forget her kindness, generosity, strength, bravery, creativity and above all her spirit for adventure and for life. Arlene was an inspiration to us all and her spirit will live in her work and in nature around us. We will think of Arlene anytime we look to the mountains, feel the winds blow and hear the waters move. Arlene's family has organized a celebration of her life on Monday November 5th, 2:00-4:00pm at the Art Gallery of Alberta, Ernest C Manning Hall.

Arlene's work is still available for sale through her current representation or by contacting Richard Wasylynchuk at
