PURSER, Arlie Olive
June 28, 1939 – March 19, 2013
Arlie passed away peacefully, survived by her loving husband, Dan Foote and his children, Brian, David, Cheryl, Steve, Marcia, Julia and Laura; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Also survived by her brother, Roger (Janet); niece, Rebecca; nephew, Benjamin; and great-niece, Cassidy. Arlie, a graduate of UBC, taught in the Coquitlam School District for 37 years. She was very involved in after school activities and the Girl Guide movement. She loved to travel and spent many summers seeing the world, never going to the same place twice. A life rich with community involvement included several years with Operation Red Nose, the United church, Go Go Grannies, The Garden Club, Scandinavian Club, Ladies Golf Club, Sons of Norway and "The Order of the Rose" Beta Sigma Phi. Arlie will be deeply missed by so many. Special thanks to the care and concern of the surgeon and nursing staff of 4 North at the Royal Columbian Hospital. A memorial will be held at Trinity United Church 33737 George Ferguson Way on Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations to the Kidney Foundation or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
