Obituary - SHEILA S. ARNOLD
April 3, 2020
Sheila S. Arnold, age 65, of Orlando, passed away peacefully at her residence on Sunday, March 22, 2020. A native of Chicago, Illinois, she was born on Feb. 20, 1955, to the late Marshall and Esther Chervony Sorkin. Sheila was a graduate of Northwestern University and worked in retail her whole career, holding a number of executive positions. Sheila was a force of nature until the end. She was an avid theater goer, wine drinker, art collector, and Green Bay Packers fan (Go Pack Go!) More than anything, she loved to spend time with her family and many friends across the country. As a loving and devoted Bubbie, she never missed an opportunity to celebrate with her loved ones.
She is survived by her son, Daniel Arnold (Taylor Pomeranz) of Philadelphia; and her daughter, Rebecca Arnold (Jane Ann Salisbury) of New York City. Sheila was the proud grandmother of Gili (2), Roz (23 months), and Siggy (4 months); and the devoted sister of Howard, Norman, and the late Jerry Sorkin.
Funeral services and interment were held in New Jersey for the immediate family only out of an abundance of caution during the coronavirus outbreak. The family will hold a celebration of life at a later date once it is safe to do so. In lieu of gifts, please consider donating to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (www.lls.org) or the Broadway Cares Fund (www.broadwaycares.org)
