It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Aryline Lutz on February 12, 2018. She was born in Dauphin, Manitoba, January 16, 1937. She moved to Edmonton in 1954 and maintained close ties with family and friends in Dauphin returning yearly for visits. She enjoyed many vacations around the world, annual golf tournaments with "The Gang", multiple fishing trips and yearly holidays in Needles with husband Herb, friends and family. She loved spending time with her family and attended many sporting events with her children and grandchildren.
She is survived by her husband of more than 61 years, Herb Lutz, their children Judy (Art) Hanson, Terrie Lutz, Glenn Lutz, her grandchildren Shirelle (Chad), Karly (Dustin), Carl, Leah (Tyler), Shelton and her precious "Little Man" Coen, her great grandson. She will also be missed by her furry baby, Bonnie. She is predeceased by her parents Lorne & Elma Mitchell, her daughter in law Carrie Lutz and her brother Ed Mitchell.

Our deepest sympathy to you Herb and your family. Aryline was such a happy person and will be missed very much. Joyce & Gerry Getzinger
I feel so sad , Arylie was wonderful friend, I will miss our conversations even though they had been difficult over the last few months.I remember well our arrival here from Dauphin in 1955, I believe she came a few months earlier, worked as a elevator operator at Woodwards. I moved to Vancouver in 1976 returning in 1999, she always welcomed me in her home and circle, I was truly blessed to be able to call her my friend. Although I am confined to my home I was blessed to be able to talk on the phone.I will never forget the wonderful 60th wedding anniversary party held for Arylie and Herb, it was a testimony to life, marriage and family, not many of us reach that destination. Arylie your Dauphin friends will always remember you and feel blessed that you were in our lives.
I wish I could attend your memorial however my health will not permit it, I love you, your memory will always be in the life I have left.
Dear Aunty – Thank you for so many wonderful Christmas and New Years Day dinners year after year with our family. You and my Mama were such good cooks and thankfully your Mom (my Gramma)…was a FABULOUS baker and cook who passed it on to you and us grandkids. You gave the mmmmmm in Nanaimo Bars and I still make your recipe. I’ll never forget your famous stance at the kitchen sink. One leg hiked up with your foot resting above your knee. Not an easy feat but that’s how I remember you always in your kitchen. We had so many family occasions together, but living one door down from you in Kenilworth was so convenient and fun for all of us cousins. Tobogganing across the street in the schoolyard, teasing Lana in the backyard, walking to school together, dinners, little roadtrips to Sandy Beach or Fawcett Lake, cousins trip to Dauphin MB to stay with Gramma and Grampa Mitchell. So many moments. But the most endearing moment to me, was watching you say your final goodbyes to my Dad and your big brother. He was so protective of you and I always remember how much you two made one another laugh. He loved you so much Aunty. You were more than his sister, you were his friend. The way you were holding his hand and touching his face and when you kissed him goodbye…it broke my heart. I know he’s been with you this past week and I know for certain he and Bob took you home to Gramma and Grampa and the rest of our deceased family members. Rest easy Aunty – till I see you again, Lornelxoxoxox (yes..the dramatic one)
Joyce and the Late John Holowaychuk send our deepest concolence on the passing of Aryline. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Herb at this time.
Herb, Judy, Terrie, Glen and Families.
We were very saddened to here of Aryline’s passing. Aryline and my mother have been such good friends for so many years. Bestie’s forever. So many memories and long Sunday phone calls.

Deepest condolences to you all at this difficult time.
