Obituary for Arlene Sharon Stewart
After a long battle with cancer, C.O.P.D. and following a recent stroke, Arlene passed away on June 4, 2018, 2 days before her 60th wedding anniversary.
Arlene was predeceased by her parents David and Jeanette McKenzie and by sister, Deanna. Arlene will be sadly missed by her husband Doug, daughter Lynne Wiebe (Denis), son Guy, granddaughter Teresa Johnson (Todd), grandsons Kenton Nickerson, Stefan Nickerson (Lisa), great – granddaughters Ella Johnson, Jordyn and Taylee Nickerson, great – grandsons Finnik and Leo Nickerson, her brother Jim (Mary) of Cherry Hill N.J. and all her aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews and special friends Glenda, Sylvia and Jacqui.

Arlene had a varied work history starting right after school in the Payroll Department at Standard Aero. Arlene worked at the Bank of Nova Scotia, Deer Lodge Center and retired from the Hudson Bay Warehouse in 1995 when Doug retired, so they could spend their summer at the cottage at Ditch Lake, which was a spot Arlene loved.
