Arlene Janet (MacInnis) Corkum, 61 of Berwick  passed away suddenly on March 12, 2020 in the Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville. She was the daughter of the late Obadiah (Leona) MacInnis of Scotts Bay Road.

Arlene was a resident of Liberty Lodge for 17 years and was loved by everyone. One person said they will miss their “ray of sunshine”.

Arlene was a person of many talents. She enjoyed knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting with her sisters, and most recently making little cards for her many friends. She enjoyed writing notes and had a large network of pen pals. Some of the little poems she wrote showed deep spiritual meaning. She loved her family and her many friends.  She had a warm and friendly personality with a sincere care and compassion for her special friends. She appreciated everything that was done for her.

Throughout her lifetime, Arlene had a number of health issues. It was her Faith, her friends, her family and her strong will, that gave her strength and hope to face each struggle.

A special thank you from the family to Wanda and Kelly for your kindness and support.  At the home where Arlene lived, she helped in the kitchen with the dishes and always wanted to go beyond her call of duty to do more.
