John McKinney Arnold, born in Texas July 11, 1857, passed away at his home at Early Winters May 8, 1914, aged 56 years, 9 months and 29 days.
Mr. Arnold has been failing for a number of years with stomach and bowel trouble, fibroid growth setting in and causing complete obstruction, from which there was no relief, and at 5:14 p. m. Friday he peacefully passed to the Great Beyond. He leaves a wife, Temperance Union (Buoy) Arnold, a son, Louie, and a daughter, Mrs. Sylvia Parkinson, all of whom reside in the valley.
His was a sunny nature and he always had a smile for his many friends. He was very devoted to his family and was a good husband, a kind father and a splendid neighbor. He came to the Valley July 3, 1904, and located in Twisp where with his family he resided for a number of years. He ran a meat market in Winthrop up to a year ago, when his failing health compelled him to get out of active business and he retired to his fine ranch.
The funeral services were conducted from the Methodist Church in Heckendorn Sunday afternoon, where Prof. Dow spoke many words of hope and comfort to the bereaved family and friends, and the body was laid to rest in the beautiful Sullivan Cemetery.
The family have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
Mrs. Arnold and family wish to extend their thanks to the many friends who were so kind and thoughtful during the sickness of their husband and father, and also for the beautiful floral offerings.
