Sheila Sorkin 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 February 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 daughter, Rebecca Arnold (Jean Ann Salisbury) of New York City and son, Daniel Arnold (Taylor Pomeranz) of Philadelphia. Sheila was the proud grandmother of Gili (2 years old), Roz (23 months) and Siggy (4 months) and the devoted sister of Howard, Norman and the late, Jerry Sorkin.
Funeral services and interment will be private, under the direction of MOUNT SINAI MEMORIAL CHAPELS, East Brunswick, 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.
