Mrs. Arnold was born April 22, 1935, in Upson County, Georgia, the only child of the late Artis Perdue and the late Estelle McSwain Perdue. She was a graduate of Yatesville High School in 1952.  She later attained her undergraduate degree from Tift College and her Master of Arts in Education from Columbus State University. She was a member of New Bethel Baptist
Church of Thomaston, Georgia. Mrs. Arnold is fondly remembered throughout Upson County as an elementary teacher and animal lover. She played the piano for her church families, tutored countless children, and especially enjoyed
time with her dear friends. She devoted much of her energy to the care of many cats or dogs in need. Her desire to help others was surpassed only by her love for our Lord. Her family and friends recognize her beautiful legacy of faith and hope in her Savior, Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her sons Vestal Arnold, Jr., and Bob Arnold (JoAnna) of Americus, Georgia. Grandchildren are Andrew Arnold, Alex Arnold, Ella Arnold, Dallas Arnold (Ashleigh), and Elise Hartigan (Matt), and great-grandson, Sam Hartigan.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be to the Upson County Humane Society P.O. Box 1152, Thomaston, GA 30286.
