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.

A story on the Journal website states, “Ms. Dale had a long and distinguished career with Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal. She served as managing editor for energy coverage at Dow Jones Newswires in the early 2000s and then as a senior writer on personal finance issues for Wealth Advisor.

“‘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 Wall Street Journal.

“‘Arden was a talented reporter, painstaking in her coverage of a beat as complex as it was important,’ said Kevin Noblet, Managing Editor of Wealth Advisor. ‘She had a lively mind and a quirky sense of humor which, to use the kind of expression she might favor, were the yin to the yang of her serious commitment to her work.’

“Ms. Dale leaves a husband, Tom Richardson, and a son, Malcolm. A memorial service is planned for her on Saturday, July 26 and 2:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Church, 4 Waldron Ave. in Summit, N.J.”
