Willie Lee Arnold was the third child born to the union of James Wilson Eason and Ida Lee Felts. A warm, witty person with a big heart, she was always available to help her family and friends. Known for her strength of character, she unfailing put herself last when it came to the welfare of others, especially members of her family. Through determination and will power, and despite health problems that would have taken most others decades earlier, she passed into Heaven seven weeks short of her 94th birthday, having outlived all her siblings, cousins, and friends and her husband, Clifford Arnold.
She was a loyal and proud member of the First United Methodist Church in Marshall, Texas, and a 50-year member of the Rebecca Lodge and the Order of the Eastern Star.
Most importantly, she was a loving, dutiful daughter to her parents, a devoted sister to her four brothers and three sisters, a wonderful wife to her husband of 54 years, and a self-less, inspiring mother to her two daughters. She encouraged us to reach for the stars, even when those impossible goals exceeded our grasp.
If everyone had such a wonderful, exemplary mother, most of the world's problems would not exist.
