– November 1, 2017

ARLINE VIOLA VAUGHAN (nee Barkhouse) passed away peacefully surrounded by her family, at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital in Lethbridge on November 1, 2017.

Arline will be lovingly remembered by her children Jim (Maureen) Scott, their children Rick, Wendy, Rod, Joni and Loni; Peggy (Jack) Wood and their son Craig; Murray Scott, his son Jordan; Roger (Cheryl) Scott and their children Steve, Aaron and Chris.

She was predeceased by her loving husband Arthur in 2009.

Arline was born in Upper Cornwall, Nova Scotia. At the age of two, following the death of her mother, Arline and her brother Collins were raised by their grandparents on the family farm. During the war she worked at a fish factory, Morris Chocolates and waitressing in Halifax.

In 1964 she married Arthur Vaughan and by 1970 they had moved to Alberta so they could be closer to family. They enjoyed traveling and camping throughout Nova Scotia and Alberta.

Her kind heart led her and Arthur to taking in and caring for foster children. She adored her grandchildren and was always the brunt of teasing, which she could also playfully dish out.

Arline was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She was always willing to give of her time in the service to others. She enjoyed reading, especially reading and marking her scriptures.

In her later years she loved attending the Jam Sessions at the Nordbridge Senior Center where she made many new friends.

The family wishes to extend their thanks to the staff of Extendicare Fairmont Park for their friendship and concern as well as the medical staff at Chinook Regional Hospital for their exceptional care.

A private family service will be held Monday, November 6, 2017. Interment will be in the Cardston Cemetery.
