Arlene Rose Ross

Ross, Arlene Rose

(Nee Glaze)

1946-2008

It is with deep regret the Ross family announces Arlene’s passing after a lengthy illness.

Arlene was predeceased by her father Alfred Glaze and her infant son James.

Arlene is survived by her loving husband Bob, devoted sons Don (Langley) & Graham (Vernon), her grandchildren Christopher and Kara (Vernon), her mother Rose Glaze (Powell River), brothers Dave & Ed Glaze (Powell River) and numerous relatives and friends.

Arlene will be remembered as a wise and generous person who loved spending time with her grandchildren. An advocate for literacy, Arlene spent countless hours reading with young children in the school system. Arlene always had time for others and unselfishly would put everyone else’s needs ahead of her own. A dedicated mother, Arlene was actively involved in her sons’ lives, from driving them to soccer practice, riding lessons, piano, etc. to helping them study for an exam or assisting them get a school project completed on time. Arlene was always there for her boys.

A family Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the North Okanagan Hospice Society.
