Leona Belle Arnold was born April 26, 1916 near Antioch School, south of Drumright, Oklahoma. Leona was the sixth of thirteen children born to Russell and Mabel (Gooch) Green. She enjoyed a lively childhood growing up on the family farm. She attended Tiger School and graduated eighth grade from Buckeye. Leona desperately longed to attend high school but was needed to help the family work the farm. On June 19, 1948, she married the love of her life, Sonny A. Arnold in Bentonville, Arkansas. Sonny worked on the pipelines and together they traveled the country and lived in Ohio, New York, Nebraska and Michigan. Sonny adored Leona and spoiled her as husbands should. He called her "Waboo" and together they enjoyed twelve years of marriage before he passed away suddenly February 20, 1960. After the death of her husband, she received her GED and attended nurses training in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. She graduated along with her sister Anna and both received their LPN licenses. She worked sixteen years for the Osteopathic Hospital in Tulsa and also helped with the Nursing Home in Cleveland. She worked at the Drumright Hospital and Nursing Home. In later years, she worked in home heath care. She enjoyed helping others and working with the elderly. She attended the Drumright Free Will Baptist Church where she was a long time member. She lived on Ohio Street in Drumright until 2004 and moved to the Drumright Housing where she loved going to the Senior Citizens daily. She had many friends and SkipBo partners. In February 2008, Leona moved to the Drumright Nursing Home where she made many friends whom she loved. She peacefully met her Lord and Savior on December 5, 2008. The knowledge of her reunion with her baby boy and other family and friends is complete comfort to her family and friends. She is preceded in death by her husband, Sonny Arnold; her infant son, Larry Gale; her parents, Russell and Mabel (Gooch) Green; five brothers, Richard, Mitchell, Dale, Homer, and Benny; and five sisters, Barbara Jean, Marie, Fay, Anna and Viola.
