September 12, 1939 - June 16, 2024

In Loving Memory

Veda Belle Arlt

Veda Belle Arlt passed away peacefully with her daughters by her side on June 16, 2024. She fought a courageous battle with an aggressive form of rheumatoid arthritis for over 30 years. Veda was born in Manitoba on September 12, 1939 to her loving parents James and Mary Buchanan. She was predeceased by her husband of 63 years, Ray Arlt in 2022.

Throughout her life, Veda demonstrated remarkable strength, grace and resilience while facing her illness with unwavering determination and enduring spirit. A devoted wife and mother, Veda’s family was her greatest pride, and she dedicated herself to their happiness and wellbeing. She never missed a family gathering, birthday, ballgame, graduation or grandchild’s birth.

Veda was known for her infectious smile, generous nature and her sage advice. She enjoyed Scrabble, crosswords and any game that required expert vocabulary skills. She never lost a game. She was a technical whiz and loved to master new technologies. She cherished long car rides, DQ soft ice cream cones and endless shopping trips. Despite her health challenges, she found joy in life everyday.

She is survived and greatly missed by her 4 children, Lois (Craig), Lynn (Clayton), Lorna (Doug) and Jim (Sherry). Also missing their grandmother and GG are her 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. She will be lovingly remembered by her sisters Bonnie (Robin) and Heather and numerous family and friends. Her dear friends at The Hamlets were touched by her kindness and positivity.

There will be no formal service as to Veda’s request. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to the Arthritis Society.

The family would like to thank the amazing ICU nurses at Vernon Jubilee Hospital for their compassion and care. Your strength and support will never be forgotten.

Pain free mom. Now you will dance.
