Arlynne was on a missions trip with Child Evangelism Fellowship's Christian Youth in Action. She was in the Thunder Bay area teaching Bible Clubs to kids from broken homes who probably thought of God as a swear word (her words, not mine). During this missions trip, she experienced some incredible things. She just celebrated her 16th birthday on Wednesday. On Saturday night, she was out with her partner having fun when the ATV that she was driving rolled over onto her.

Arlynne, you were an amazing girl! When you entered a room, you made sure everyone smiled, talked and laughed. I will miss your joy for life and your spunky personality. See you "on the other side" and love cows!

HOLYER, Arlynne Elizabeth - Aged 16 years, was transported from the seat of an ATV to the presence of her Saviour on Saturday, July 30, 2011. Beloved daughter of Cheryl Beecroft-Penner and Pete Penner, David and Nohemy Holyer; sister of Karissa Holyer, Josiah, Eden, Nathan and Sarina Beecroft-Penner. She is also the granddaughter of Ronald and Marjorie Beecroft, Nest Pritchard, Richard and Marilyn Holyer and Jakob and Katie Penner. Loved and missed by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Arlynne was joyfully serving God with Child Evangelism Fellowship in Northern Ontario. Her presence is already sorely missed by her many friends from Eden Secondary School, Central Community Church and Southridge Community Church. Visitation and life celebration still to be determined. Memorial donations to Child Evangelism Fellowship would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences at

This is the testimony Arlynne shared at Southridge when she got baptized last summer..
