1921 - 2011 Obituary Condolences
October 23, 1921, God sent one of his very special angels to make this world a more loving and caring place for 88 years. She always had only good things to say about anyone and did not listen to anything that was said bad because she believed love and helping each other would make the world a much better place. She taught her two sons (Lonnie Arney and Gerry E. Arney) to love everything on earth.

She was very good with making many different arts and crafts of any kind.

She was a member of the College of Regents Degree in Women of the Moose in Mount Vernon. She was also a member of the ELKS in Anacortes.

During WWII she was a Three Plate Welder in the shipyards in Portland, OR and was very proud that she was listed as one of the top ten Welders and also had done some work on the USS Missouri. After the war she worked as a CPA Bookkeeper for a private business. Later she worked as a Motel Manager.

She loved all types of life: plants and animals. She was truly blessed with life because anything she touched grew. She could take a plant that everyone said was dead and she would make it come back to life. She also had the magic touch to heal people that had small hurts or pains. It was truly a gift and she would tell you it was not her that did it but it was God that did it all. Her favorite show on TV was Dancing with the Stars.

The world became a little dimmer on March 30, 2011 when God called her home to be by his side as one of this most loved Angels.
She did not want any memorial service but asked that you love him or her everyday and try to help someone less fortunate. Loving and caring was her life.

"God Bless by brother Lonnie Arney and myself for sending us this wonderful Angel to be our mother. I know that there is a lot more I could tell you about my mother, but right now it still hurts too much. So I will close in my mother's words of 'May God bless you and be sure to love everything and your loved ones everyday'."
