WALKER, Arlene Annie Duff (nee Currie)
December 8, 1919 – September 1, 2016
It is with sadness that we announce that Arlene Walker
passed away peacefully on September 1, 2016 at the age
of 96 years at Bethany Care Centre in Cochrane. She
will be dearly missed by her daughter Sharon (Barry)
Baldwin of Sundre and her son, Colin (Julie) Walker of
Cremona; her grandchildren, Carrie (Bob) Bowlen of
Sundre, Tracy (Brady) Westerson of Cremona, Robin
(Chris) Clarke of Cochrane, Olivia Walker of Cremona,
Heather Walker of Cremona, and Aprille Walker
of Cremona; nine great-granchildren; her sisters,
Margaret Scarrow of Leduc, and Sharon (Eldon) Evans
of St. Albert; and many nieces and nephews. Arlene was
predeceased by her husband George, her parents Sarah
and Archie, as well as her sister Audrey Hurst and her
husband Bob, and her brother in law, Jim Scarrow.
Arlene was an accomplished highland dancer; she once danced for the Royal
Family when they visited Canada. She was an equestrian jumper and later trained
and showed American saddle bred horses. Arlene was fortunate enough to travel
to Toronto with her father Archie Currie and friends, where they traveled by train
with their horses to the 1948 Grey Cup, supporting the Calgary Stampeders, where
they won. Arlene also loved and raised Scotch Collies.
Arlene met and married George Walker of Calgary, AB where they lived for a few
years, later moving to the family farm in the Cremona area, where they raised their
two children Sharon and Colin.
Arlene was a loving and caring woman who loved life and will be greatly missed by
family and friends.
