Arthur Hollis Corey
Arthur Corey passed away peacefully on Wed., Sept. 20, 2017 in Winchester. He was 88.
He was the son of Marion Benjamin Corey and Muriel Eloise Corey (Bowen). He was predeceased by his loving wife of 60 years, Thelma Corey (née Ball), and is survived by children Benjamin, Shawn, Lance, Joyce (Darrell Douglas), Rodney (Sue), and Gail (Thomas) Bailey. He is also survived by six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Having grown up on a dairy farm in rural Quebec, Arthur knew about hard work. Throughout his working years, he always worked hard to provide for his family. His leisure time was often spent working with his hands, knitting, rug hooking, or other hobbies. By far, his favourite thing was to spend time with family and friends, telling stories, and spending time together. Arthur missed his wife Thelma terribly after her passing, and slipped away peacefully.
Visitation will be held on Fri., Sept. 29 from 1 to 3 pm followed immediately by a service at 3 pm at the Winchester Chapel of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry Funeral Home, 472 Main St.
Donations may be made in support of the Dundas Manor Activity Program in Arthur’s memory.
