Ardythe "Marlene" Reid

Ardythe "Marlene" Reid, of Wolfville, passed away in the Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville on November 22, 2021. Marlene was the daughter of the late Lewis and Vera (Spicer) Taylor. She was born on June 11, 1939, in Sheffield Mills and moved to Kingsport at an early age.

Marlene is survived by her daughter, Marian; son-in-law, Ian Reid, and grandson, John Reid, all of North Alton; brother, Lawrence "Laurie" Taylor (Joan) of Waverly; sisters-in-law, Laura Taylor of Cow Bay and Cheryl-Ann Reid of Kentville; brother-in-law, Ivan Reid (Janet) of Greenwood; several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 60 years, John Reid; brother, Keith Taylor (Kingsport); and brothers-in-law, Earle Reid (Janet) (Halifax), William "Bill" Reid (Gloria) (Digby), and George Reid (Kentville).

Marlene graduated from Kings County Academy "KCA", Mack Business College, and the Cornwallis Inn Beauty Salon. She was a wonderful wife, mother, and homemaker, and enjoyed all crafts, especially rug hooking. Marlene was also an avid gardener and took great pride in her lawns and flower gardens. She was an active member of the Willing Hands of St. Thomas Anglican Church and the Hilltoppers Group, both of Kingsport. She was always quick to lend a hand and appreciated the company of her many friends and family.

The family would like to express their gratitude to the wonderful neighbors and friends who looked out for Marlene and John during their later years, to Dr. Ben Sabine and Dr. Mary Keating, EHS Paramedics and the nursing staff at the Valley Regional Hospital.
