Frances Walling


Age 91, passed away peacefully at her home in Albuquerque surrounded by her family on Sunday, April 10, 2016. Her kindness, strength, and sense of humor never failed her. Frances was a faithful lifelong member of the United Methodist Church. She was born on December 23, 1924 in Munday, Texas to Wade Hampton and Ida (Partridge) Walling. She graduated with a teaching degree from North Texas State University, and taught physical education for many years.

On June 28, 1956, she married the love of her life, Jim Arnold. They were married for 57 years at the time of her passing. When Jim retired from Sandia Labs, they moved from Albuquerque to Carlsbad. Both were avid golfers, and spent most of their happiest times playing golf together in Albuquerque and Carlsbad. They returned to Albuquerque in 2011 to be closer to family.

She is survived by her husband Jim Arnold; daughter Lori Arnold; granddaughters Ali Swope and Kinsey Swope.

She joins her son Jeff Arnold, who passed away in 2010.
