Benoit (Corkum) Geneverah Blanche (“Nebbie”): Age 85 of Lower Sackville, passed away peacefully on November 20th, 2017, surrounded by her loving family and friends. It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Wife, Mum, and Nanny. Born in West Berlin, Queens County, Nova Scotia, she was the chosen daughter of Steadman Abraham Corkum and Annie Maude (Meisner). Mum grew up in East Berlin (Pudding Pan), and moved to Halifax at the age of 14. She worked for Globe Laundry in Halifax until she moved to Ontario. It was there she married the love of her life Benny, on May 1st, 1954. Mum kept an immaculate house, made the best lemon loaves, pumpkin pies, and she always provided the best she could for her family. After many moves as a military family, they settled in Lower Sackville. For many years, she enjoyed taking care of her grandchildren, knitting, and going to bingo. Mum is survived by her husband of 63-years, Robert (“Benny”); children, Catherine (Shawn), Mike (Alda), Joanne, Bernadette (Claude); grandchildren, Todd (Lisa), Alicia (Matt), Stephen (Cassandra), Melissa (Marc), Joel (Stacey), Pamela (Joel), Andrew (Amber), Taylor and Hayley; great-grandchildren, Jayelle, Katie, Madison, Devon, Liam, Ruth, Aden, Fraser, Lilly, Evelyn, Jase, Evan, and Baby Davis’ arrival any day. Special sister-in-law, Lorraine Corkum, brother-in-law Bud (Annamae) Benoit, several nieces and nephews. Mum was the last surviving member of her immediate family. She was predeceased by her infant son, Joseph, son-in-law Stephen (Isnor); brothers, Clyde, Jordan, Earl and Albert; sisters, Dorothy, and Elsie. Through it all, she never lost her witty sense of humour. Visitation will be held at Atlantic Funeral Homes, Sackville Drive on Friday, November 24th at 10 am. A celebration of life will be held at 11 am, reception to follow. Family flowers only. Donations may be made to the Children’s Wish Foundation, or a charity of your choice.
