Arlene was born in Carmangay, AB and grew up on the farm near Nobleford. She was very tall and enjoyed sports, especially basketball. She later moved to Lethbridge, AB and worked at the TV station. She married Bob Kane Jr. in February of 1958 and they were blessed with 3 children. Later they moved to Calgary where Arlene worked at the Trade Winds Hotel as the catering manager. Arlene & Bob semi retired to Kelowna in 1979 and began a new life of boating, fishing, camping, picking fruit, canning and gardening. All of their kids slowly followed them out to the sunny Okanagan. Arlene & Bob started Kane’s Harley Davidson in 1984 and it still stands today. Mom enjoyed Kelowna as they were members of the Kelowna Yacht Club and as well she was a member of the Sons of Norway. Arlene was born to be a Mom and a grandmother. She was very devoted to all her “kids” and it showed. Arlene truly was a one-in-a-million person with a caring heart and a kind soul.
