We Remember


June 26, 1955 — June 7, 2022

At the age of 66, our beloved mom, Wendy Arden-Harisch was called home to Jesus on June 7, 2022. She went peacefully holding her daughters’ hands and listening to one of her favourite songs (sung by her dear friend, Maggie, and her daughter, Kelly). Kind, generous, and loving, Wendy devoted her life to her family and to helping others.

Wendy goes to join those who have taken the journey before: her husband Wolf Harisch; her parents Harold Arden & Dorothy Larsen; and her three sisters Brenda Roch, Judy Roncin, and Glenda Arden. Those left behind, to cherish the memories Wendy created, include: her two daughters Sherrylee Bryshun and Kelly Sawitsky; her eight adored grandchildren Braeden, Nigel, Ashley-Anne, Brealie, Hunter, Noah, Isaiah, and Annika. Wendy leaves her sister Cheryl Blize; her brothers Doug (Kim) Arden and Vic (Josee) Norgren; stepmother Phyllis Arden; and many loving nieces and nephews; as well as many extended family members. She also leaves behind her precious fur baby, Shylah Rose

The family would like to offer a very special thank you to Val & Don Woolsey, Margaret & Dave Warden, and to all her Kelowna family for their support and loving care.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Calgary, AB to honour Wendy at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Research Society.
