BARLIN, Arlene
A loving and inspiring mother, daughter, sister and best friend, Arlene passed away peacefully and surrounded by her family on Sunday, June 10, 2018. She remains in the hearts of daughters Chloe, Aliya and Mica Daniels; their father Zev Daniels: sisters and brothers-in-law Elly and Peter Daniels; Laurie and Mark Rosenfield; and Sharron and Shelly Fruitman. She is already missed by nieces and nephews Courtney and Michael, Zachary, Maya and Esmé Howells, Jonathan, Alexander and Arthur Rosenfield; and Olivia and Lily Daniels. Arlene was a caring daughter to her late parents Zelda and H. Scotty Barlin.
Intelligent, curious, dynamic and free- spirited, Arlene lived her life fully and fearlessly. Without prejudice, she gave love to everyone who crossed her path. Her warm and caring spirit created an extended family of friends, spanning the world, of like-minded, open and beautiful souls. An eternal teacher and guide, Arlene had the ability, with just her smile or a few wise words, to set someone on their true and right path. She introduced her friends and family to yoga and spirituality, sharing compassion and curiosity for a greater good through her perspective. Her creativity, imagination and engaging persona added to her impact on those around her. It didn't get cooler than Arlene.
Arlene held a welcoming home and space for all, and her family and friends will forever be grateful and feel blessed for her presence in their lives.
Arlene traveled the world trying new and innovative cancer treatments. Immense gratitude is given to all those near and far who provided care.
We will remember Arlene sitting out on the deck at her home in the Bahamas, listening to music, looking up at the stars and out over the clear ocean water, chanting Om Namah Shivaya.
