Death of the WSJ's Arden Dale

DaleWall Street Journal, Arden Dale, Dow Jones Writer, Dies:

Arden Dale, who covered taxes and estate planning at The Wall Street Journal, died Sunday at her home in Maplewood, N.J., after a battle with cancer. She was 54 years old.

She had a long and distinguished career with Dow Jones and the Journal. She was managing editor for energy coverage at Dow Jones Newswires in the early 2000s, and then a senior writer on personal-finance issues for Wealth Adviser.

"We are deeply saddened by Arden's death. She was a highly talented and widely respected journalist and colleague. Arden served Dow Jones, The Wall Street Journal and their readers well in important news management and reporting positions," said Neal Lipschutz, a deputy managing editor of the Journal.

Very sad news. I spoke with her several times over the past 10 years and I thought she was very bright and thorough in her reporting and related research. She will be missed.
