RACKHAM, Arlis May

September 21, 1930 –Vancouver, British Columbia
June 28, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Arlis. She slipped away on June 28th 2019 at the Manor Village on Fish Creek Park.

She is survived by her children, Susan Hargreaves, David Rackham, Jim Rackham, and Ken Rackham and his wife Linda. Her grandchildren Graeme Hargreaves, wife Sarah and great-granddaughter Audrey. Grandson Ross Hargreaves and wife Ashley.

Mom will always be remembed as a great hostess, her and Dad’s happy hours were famous! She had a strong spirit when, due to Dad’s career we moved three times in a year and a half. She made every house a home. Arlis enjoyed bridge and was a life master. Summers at Thormanby Island and the occasional trip to Vegas were favourites. Mom was married for over 60 years and loved all her family. She will be dearly missed.

In living memory of Arlis Rackham, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road SE, Calgary, AB, T2X 3J3, Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    My condolences to the family. I have wonderful memories of bridge parties and tournaments with Arlis and as many with both Arlis and Jim around the “poker table”.
