September 22, 1937- February 23, 2023

Arleen Lyla Klassen, born to Borghild and Harold Bryant, passed away peacefully in her sleep on the morning of February 23. She is survived by her 4 children Shauna (Phil) Matthews, Carla (Dave) Pauls, Ivan (Joanna) Klassen, and Nova (Ricky) Page, and her 7 grandchildren; Aleacia, Joshua, Jared, Quinn, Drew (his wife Sofia), Elisha, and Shiloh.
"Queen Arleen" as her late husband John (who passed away January 9, 2018) called her, was a lover of Jesus, an accomplished leader, and speaker in Christian Women's Club, a singer, a prayer warrior, and intercessor, a servant hearted lover of people and a woman who feared the Lord. She was everything one would wish for in a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend. Arleen will be remembered for her laughter, her kindness, her arms wide open to strangers and friends, and her first instinct to trust the Lord and lean not on her own understanding and in all her ways acknowledge Him and that He alone would make her path straight. (Proverbs 3:5&6)
Thursday morning Arleen traversed her gentle path to leave this earth and move into eternity with all those she loved who had gone before her. She is rejoicing with the angels as we celebrate her homecoming.
