Marna Oletha Arnold

September 28, 1922 - March 30, 2018

Marna Oletha Arnold was born September 28, 1922 to G. Willis Byrd and Ada B. Byrd in Beaver, Oklahoma. In 1925, she and her family moved to Southern Oregon, where she grew up, and then in 1940 married the forever love of her life, John Arnold. They lived in Northern California and Southern Oregon until settling down in Medford in 1952 to raise a family. In 1965, they moved to Red Bluff, California, and finally to Reno, Nevada in 1982 when they became full-time RVers.

On March 30, 2018 at the age of 95 years, six months, and two days, Marna passed to be with her husband of 65 years, John; all eight siblings; and her parents. Survivors include her only son, Jim (Carol); and her only grandson, Jake, all of Reno; as well as numerous nieces and nephews, including great-great-great-nieces and great-great-great-nephews.

A private family service was held at Sierra Memorial Gardens, Reno, Nev. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honor to your favorite charity.
