Arnold, Janette Faith – Age 67 of Oyster Pond, Jeddore, passed away into the loving arms of her Saviour on April 16, 2019. Born in Musquodoboit Harbour, she was the daughter of Noreen (Williams) and the late Frank Thomson.
She is survived by her husband, Captain N.R. Arnold; daughters, Kelly Corkery (Tony); and Jennifer Arnold (Glenn Skiffington). She leaves behind her beloved grandsons, Russell, Micah, Seth and Levi. Also left to mourn her loss are her brother, Donald Thomson and his wife Meridy; nephew, Kenneth, and niece, Brittany Perry (Chris). In addition, many special brothers and sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces and cousins will feel her absence.
Janette was an active member of the church and an avid community volunteer. You could find her every year working in the famous cheesecake room for the tea and sale. She was the proud recipient of the Women of Excellence Award, a well-deserved honour. She worked for 22 seasons as a Heritage Interpreter at the Fisherman’s Life Museum, an ideal role as she was blessed with an incredible ability to connect with people. She was the unofficial family historian and a true Scot at heart. She enjoyed reading, travelling with three special girlfriends, and loved to spend time with her grandsons in the pool. Mom will be remembered for her beautiful singing voice.
Visitation will be Sunday, April 28, 7-9 p.m., and funeral service will be Monday, April 29, at 2 p.m., both in Jeddore United Baptist Church, 8 West Jeddore Road, with Pastor Aubrey Deslatte officiating.
