Grant, Marilyn  
Grant, Marilyn our beloved mother and grandmother, passed away on May 20, 2016, following a two-year struggle with breast cancer. Marilyn was an elegant woman, gracious hostess, generous caregiver, loyal friend, and spectacular cook. Marilyn was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, on March 31, 1934, to Norman and Mary Margaret Miller. The family moved to Anderson, Indiana where she graduated from high school. She was an excellent student and earned a scholarship to Indiana University. In her early 20s, the family moved to Orlando. While at the beach she met the "one and only" love of her life, Alan. Their love story lasted almost 53 years. Marilyn's elegance, and her passion for Christ, made an impression on all who met her. She saw the absolute best in all people and could be counted on to never turn anyone away. She often brought exquisite bouquets of roses and camelias grown by Alan to those in need. Marilyn was a true disciple of Christ, and no one said "Praise the Lord!" with more regularity, enthusiasm or sincerity. She would want you to know that you are loved by God more than you could ever imagine. Marilyn was preceded in death by her beloved husband Alan, her wise-cracking older brother Ted, and her beautiful sister Marge. She is survived by her children Norman, Maynard (Leonie) and Julie, and her two grandchildren, Rachel and Ben. The family wishes to acknowledge and give heartfelt thanks to the many wonderful folks at Hospice of the Comforter, with special thanks to Antoinette, for their care and support; to Jean McIntosh, her good and constant friend of over 50 years; to Father William "Doc" Holiday for always having a kind and comforting word; and to her son Norman, her constant caregiver for these past two years. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Marilyn's beloved Incarnation Catholic Church. A memorial service will take place later this summer.

Orrell-Arnold, Betty - Orlando  
Orrell-Arnold, Betty passed away peacefully at her home in Orlando, Florida on May 30, 2016 after a lengthy illness. She was surrounded by family members and close friends. She was 78. Betty was born on October 12, 1937 in Advance, North Carolina. She was the youngest of nine children born to her loving parents Benjamin Stacy Orrell Sr. and Flora Howard Orrell. She is survived by her husband Paul Arnold of Orlando; four children, Bambi Lynn Gregory (Scott) of Rockdale, TX, Jodi Renee Butner Snyder of Winston-Salem, NC, Lori Lane Butner and Donald Butner both of Orlando; one stepson, David Arnold (Christine) of Wallingford, CT; one brother Benjamin Orrell (Elsie) of Maggie Valley, NC; 11 grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; two sisters Lucy Gunter of Winston-Salem, Ruby Blackburn of Tallahassee, FL; five brothers Charles Orrell of Los Angeles, CA, Walter Orrell, Alton Orrell, Kenneth Orrell, and Frank Orrell all of Winston-Salem. Betty graduated in 1955 from Griffith High School in Winston-Salem. She married Donald Butner Sr. in 1956 (he died in 2012). They divorced after 22 years. She married Paul Arnold in 1998. Paul was a retired trust officer for Mellon Bank in Pittsburgh, PA and living in Orlando when they met in 1997. Betty met Paul when he enrolled in a class she was teaching on travel tourism. Betty had a long career in aviation. She started with Piedmont Airlines (which later merged with US Airways) in Winston-Salem working in reservations and then transferred to Reston, VA to open and manage a new reservations office to serve the Washington, DC region. After several years in Washington she transferred to the US Airways reservations center in Orlando. She retired in Orlando after 26 years in the airline business. Betty traveled frequently before and after retirement. Former colleagues still love to talk about the many trips they took with Betty to Great Britain, Western Europe, Turkey, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Wherever she lived Betty was immersed in the local arts scene. She befriended and encouraged artists, local actors and musicians. For several summers after her retirement, she worked as a volunteer, alongside her husband, Paul, at Tanglewood in Western Massachusetts, the iconic summer home for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops. Betty was a member of the Science of Mind Church in Orlando. Betty often credited her parents for her open heart, open door policy to persons in need of an advocate or moral or economic support. She disliked injustice in all its forms. In addition to the many individuals she helped locally, she tried to make a difference globally. She was a committed activist for Amnesty International, a worldwide human rights organization that works to free political prisoners. She handled publicity for the Orlando chapter and helped host the annual Human Rights Award dinner. In her private life, Betty was an accomplished cook who owned a large library of cookbooks. She loved to frequent local farmers' markets and to plan holidays and other special occasions for her children and grandchildren who called her "Nannie B." She especially loved Christmas. Even as her health was declining she organized a memorable week long holiday for her family near Boone, a small town in her beloved North Carolina. Friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life event planned for 5-8 p.m. July 3 at the Windhover Condominium Clubhouse at 5987 Windhover Drive, Orlando, FL 32819. Memorials in Betty's name may be sent to Amnesty International, Orlando Chapter 519, P.O. Box 533855, Orlando, FL 32853. Plans for a funeral service and interment in Winston-Salem are incomplete and will be announced later.
