Obituary of Marlene Faye Seaboyer

SEABOYER (CORKUM), Marlene Faye - We, the family of Marlene Faye Seaboyer (Corkum), sadly announce her passing at South Shore Regional Hospital on Monday, February 14,2022 in her 88th year. Marlene was born in Pentz, NS on July 16, 1934. She was our beloved Mother, Nana, Great Nana and friend.


Marlene was predeceased by her parents, Eber and Nellie (Mossman) Corkum; her husband of 64 years, James Albert Seaboyer; and her son-in-law, Jeff Amos.


Marlene is survived by her children, Jacquelyn Amos, Paulette Jensen (Gene), James Seaboyer (Shawn), Coleen Seaboyer (Gerry Fong) and Larry Seaboyer (Sandy); and her grandchildren, Lindsey Saunders, James and Matthew Seaboyer, Jason, Kristen, Callie and Diana Fong and Paul Seaboyer; and several great-grandchildren.


After completing school, Marlene worked for the Royal Bank of Canada. She married her sweetheart, James Seaboyer, and continued to work at the bank part time, while they raised their family. She also worked alongside and supported her husband in all his business endeavours. This included bookkeeping and being his secretary while they operated Seaboyer Transport Ltd., and even helping him fill bait boxes when he was lobster fishing and working the wood splitter with him to prepare their firewood. She also enjoyed working with Jim in their large and bountiful vegetable garden.


Marlene was a lifelong member of West Side United Church and the UCW and LaHave & District Fire Department Auxiliary, where she was Treasurer for many years. Those years of service gave her great happiness and pride and she made many special friends along the way.


Mom enjoyed her flower gardens, taking long walks, knitting, doing puzzles and treating her whole family to fabulous holiday dinners. We especially loved her delicious turkey dinners, tasty potato salads, and yummy cookies and squares.


Marlene was fiercely proud of her children's and grandchildren's accomplishments. She adored her family, and we adored her. We spent many happy times at Lake Mush-a-Mush, and travelling to Florida, Barbados and cruising the Caribbean with her. She was such fun to be with, and we will miss her terribly.


Sincere thanks to the nurses and doctors at SSRH Emergency Department for their professionalism and caring support during her final hours.


Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to LaHave & District Fire Department, West Side United Church, or the charity of your choice. On-line condolences may be made by visiting




I’d like the memory of me

to be a happy one.

I’d like to leave an afterglow

of smiles when day is done.

I’d like to leave an echo

whispering softly down the ways,

of happy times and laughing times,

and bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve

to dry before the sun,

of happy memories that I leave

behind when day is done.
