Obituary of Shirlene Dobbin (nee d'Arcis)
It is with profound sadness that the family of Shirlene Dobbin (nee d’Arcis), announce
her passing on March 20, 2023, at the age of 67 years. Shirlene was born on February
17, 1956, in Selkirk, Manitoba, to parents Walter and Olive d’Arcis.
She will be lovingly remembered by her sisters: Mariah (Ted) and Wanda (Mike);
brothers: Eric (Pam) and Arnold (Bonnie); sisters-in-law: Evelyn (Ray), Rita (Johnny),
Sharon (Wade), and Sheila (Michael); brothers-in-law: Wayne (Laurie), Cyril (Shanni),
Larry (Shelagh), and Eddie (Sherri); as well as numerous relatives, nieces, nephews
and cousins. Shirlene was predeceased by her husband Michael (Mike aaay) of many
years; sister Mae, brothers: Lionel, Harley and Ivan; and her parents Wally and Olive.
Our dearest sister was a beautiful person, inside and out. There wasn’t a mean bone in
her body and she was always kind, generous and loving. In spite of the hardship’s life
threw at her, she had an inner strength and wisdom that couldn’t be broken. Everyone
who knew her, loved her for her cheerful spirit and loving ways. She was the glue that
held the family together and always had good advice to those who asked, or she would
give it anyway!
She will be dearly missed by her special long-time friends in Riverton and all the places
she lived during her working years.
