Arlene Learn

January 16, 1950 — November 6, 2019

Arlene “Billy” Learn, age 69, of Ronan, passed away on November 6, 2019 at St. Joseph Hospital in Polson. Arlene Phillips was born on January 16, 1950 in Missoula, MT to Bill and Mavis Phillips.

She enjoyed riding horses and working on the family’s ranch while growing up. On August 31, 1969 she married her husband of 50 years Wayne “Buzz” Learn at their family ranch house in Perma, Montana. They raised three children Waynet, Wayne and Levi.

Arlene loved spending time with her family and was always eager to lend a helping hand.

Another one of Arlene’s passions was serving her God, Jehovah. She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1966 and was a joyful servant of Jehovah. She found great comfort and joy in the scriptures.

Arlene is survived by her husband Buzz Learn, her children Waynet (Jason) Bowers, Wayne (Tiffany) Learn and Levi (Zodee) Learn; her grandchildren, Shelby, CJ, Justine (Manny), Miranda (Royce), Whitnee (Chancey) and her great- grandchildren, Emma, Leticia and Natilee and her siblings Doug Phillips and Betty Adams and many loved nieces and nephews and extended family.

Arlene’s family looks forward to when they will see her bright smile again soon!
