Arlie Jean Posehn (McMillan)

November 24, 1935 - May 3, 2023


Born in Yorkton, SK, to John and Dorothy McMillan, Arlie was the 3rd of 4 siblings.  The family moved in the 30’s to Langley where she grew up enjoying the adventures of small-town life.  As a young adult, Arlie worked for the BC Telephone Company.  She met and married Larry O’Brien (predeceased) and moved to Cloverdale where they welcomed daughters Kerri and Cindy.  They were surrounded by wonderful family, friends and fun times.


Arlie spent many years working for School District 36 (Surrey) where she established new and lifelong relationships.  Her interests included curling, boating, golf, Happy Hour with wine, Elvis music, and last, but not least, getting her beautiful soft white hair done.  Always looking so pretty, Arlie was a natural beauty.

Oscar Posehn entered her life and their past friendship blossomed into marriage.  They loved their home in Sunnyside Estates and enjoyed several years with the wonderful neighbours and friends there.   Sadly, Oscar passed in September 2022 and things became more difficult for Arlie.

On May 3, 2023, she drifted away with her daughters at her side.  Arlie was predeceased by sister Marg Joneson (Bert).  She is survived by Kerri O’Brien (Don), Cindy O’Brien Hugh (Rick), brothers Mick McMillan (Judy) and Rob McMillan (Dona), her cherished grandchildren Chad (Allison), Sean (Candice), Jennifer (Colin), Kyle (Ashley), Trevor (Malaika), Caitlyn, and Taylor (Maechelle), all of whom have their own special memories of happy adventures and special times with Grandma. She loved hearing all about their families and when able, took the opportunity to attend their sporting events, concerts and celebrate their achievements.  As Gigi, she could hardly believe she had thirteen great grandchildren who blessed her life – she rarely missed a birthday or any occasion to connect with family.  It brought her such joy.

She had so many special friends, new and old, and you each held a special place in her heart.  Your support, kindness and love has been a great gift to our family over the years.  We thank you.

It’s been a precious gift to have been given our Mom, Grandma, Gigi, sister and friend.  Above all, Mom, you always gave us so much support, guidance, and unconditional, enduring love.

Missing you …  Much Love and Rest Well
