Mozelle D. ARNOLD

ARNOLD, Mozelle D., of Tallahassee, Fla., passed away August 31, 2011, with her children by her side. She was born December 13, 1912, in Statesboro, Ga., and grew up as a farm girl until she moved to Florida in 1929. She was an Avon Park, Fla., resident from 1949 to 2005 when she moved to Crestview, Fla., to live with her son, Charles. From 2007 until her death, she was in Tallahassee, Fla., with her daughters. Mrs. Arnold was employed with Wells Motor Co. in Avon Park for 26 years and retired in 1978 as Office Manager. She was active in the First Baptist Church for 54 years and for many of those years she was a Sunday school teacher for three year olds and 13 year olds. She administered the Home Bound Program for several years. Her family and friends valued her wise, gentle advice and countenance. She was deeply loved and respected as a mother, sister, daughter and grandmother. Mrs. Arnold had an unwavering faith in God and her everyday life illustrated that faith as an example to all who knew her. She retained a sense of humor throughout her life, often surprising her family and friends with her witticism. Ms. Arnold enjoyed backyard gardening when she retired, along with having more time to visit her children and grandchildren. She was, and is, famous for her "cathead" biscuits. Her greatest attribute was her total commitment to family and she was always a mother first. Mrs. Arnold was preceded in death by her two brothers and four sisters; as well as sons, Danny Arnold and Donald Arnold; and daughter, Carolyn Arnold Lewis. She is survived by her daughters, Bobbie Arnold Glover (Henry) and Patricia Arnold of Tallahassee; and a son, Charles Arnold (Frances) of Crestview, Fla. She was blessed with 16 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren. Services will be held Saturday September 3, at First Baptist Church, Avon Park. Family and friends visitation will be held 10-11 a.m. and the service will be at 11 a.m. Donations in memory of Mozelle Arnold can be made to First Baptist Church in Avon Park.
