At Health Sciences North in Sudbury passed away peacefully on January 21st, 2012
«Beloved wife of the late Réal TESSIER (predeceased). Her conversion to the Catholic faith in her pre-marriage years formed the rest of her life. She was a devout member of Holy Redeemer Parish in Minnow Lake for more than 50 years.
Arlene was born in Cambridge-Narrows, New Brunswick on December 29th, 1927. She later moved to Saint John, New Brunswick where she met and married Réal. Later they moved to Montreal, Quebec and Sudbury, Ontario. She loved the serenity of the cottage at Trout Lake (Shenandoah). She will be remembered by the love for her extended children neighbors, and all those around her. Her loving motivation has helped propel many to heights they may not have otherwise achieved. Her respect of the proper use of language has always been paramount. She was and always will remain our matriarch and took this tremendous task seriously. Arlene's mother Annie's legacy continues through her by the appropriate use of humour in regular life by helping to lighten the load».
