MACIN­NIS, Ar­lene El­iz­a­beth

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

It is with great sor­row we the fam­ily of Ar­lene MacIn­nis an­nounce her pass­ing on Fri­day, July 10, 2015. For the past year she led a very valiant bat­tle with can­cer and not once did she have a neg­a­tive word, and to all of us it in­stilled a hope it would be beaten. Dur­ing this time her hus­band Glenn was with her ev­ery step of the way.

Ar­lene, 58, was the daugh­ter of the late John Dan and El­iz­a­beth MacMullin.

Born in Syd­ney, and in her teen years moved to Boisdale.

She is sur­vived by her lov­ing hus­band Glenn MacIn­nis and her four sons that she adores and in­deed in­volved in their lives in all as­pects — Chris (Elena), Pa­trick (Shan­non), Matthew (Anna) and youngest Bren­nan, at home; her sis­ter Florence, Ed- mon­ton; broth­ers, Leonard (Phyliss) Lon­don, Ont., Jackie (Lee), Boisdale; mother-in-law Mar­ion MacIn­nis; sis­ter-in-law Dar­lene and brother-in-law Jim­mie; her eight nieces and neph­ews, Brad, Ter­rance, Deb­bie, Lau­rence, Ni­cole, Jonathan, Kevin and Ju­nior. In­side the cookie jar could al­ways be found the boys spe­cial friends Joey, Johnathan, Adam, Miller and Turk, they all called her “Mom.” She is also sur­vived by three grandaunts Jo­hanna MacKin­non, Theresa MacKin­non and Josephine MacNeil.

She was a grad­u­ate of Holy An­gels, and St. FX to ob­tain her de­gree in so­cial work. She spent sev­eral years at Brae­more as a di­rec­tor, and than be­came an in­struc­tor at Mar­coni Cam­pus. She had a knack for at­tract­ing peo­ple and fam­i­lies who needed help, and she would go to no end mak­ing sure they were pro­vided for with no fanfare. Her pas­sion was teach­ing.

We would like to thank all her doc­tors and pal­lia­tive care for such fine care. A very spe­cial thank-you to Noel and Neil Bald­win, who were so kind to her.
