A life long resident of Central Square, NY, Arline was a homemaker and loving foster mother to dozens of children for over thirty years. She also opened her home as a daycare to local families for before and after school care. Arline enjoyed sewing, crafts and has blessed many with keepsake blankets, pajamas, curtains, pot holders and more.
Arline was a loving mother to all and a devoted United Methodist. A lover of music she could often be found singing to her records whilst sewing up a storm. Following the death of her husband Wally in 1996 she remained forever faithful to him for a total of 63 years.
Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the American Cancer Society in her memory.
From her husband and our father Wallace F. Corrice Sr. : “People so seldom say I love you and then it’s either too late or love goes, so when I tell you I love you it doesn’t mean I know you’ll never go; only that I wish you didn’t have to.”
Calling hours will be held at Watson’s Funeral Home in Central Square NY on Friday January 10, 2020 from 3-6PM followed by a brief service. Internment at Hillside Cemetery will be held at a later date.
