DALHART - Dr. Edwinna Arnold, 94, of Dalhart died Monday, Jan. 16, 2012.

Services will be at 10 a.m. Thursday in First Baptist Church Chapel in Dalhart with the Rev. Bob McAlister, retired Baptist minister, officiating. Burial will be in Memorial Park Cemetery. Arrangements are by Horizon Funeral Home of Dalhart.

Edwinna Broyles Arnold was born Jan. 15, 1918, in New Orleans, La., to Marshel and Loys Broyles. Edwinna's father passed away when she was 12.

Edwinna married Harry Vernon Arnold in 1935 in Mexoma, Okla., and they both entered chiropractic studies under Palmer Institute and graduated in November 1946. They began their practice under the guidance of Dr. Story in
Clayton, N.M. About a year later, they moved to Dalhart and opened their practice there with a long successful business until Doc Arnold passed away in 1985. Edwinna continued to practice for many years and retired in 1999.

Edwinna was a wonderful woman of faith and integrity, which lasted a lifetime. Even up to the time of her passing, she was of sound mind and very independent, except for her very special friend and caretaker for many years, Gayle Hoffman. Gayle was not only a next-door neighbor for several years but was a faithful friend who gave many years of her life to caring for her friend, Edwinna. Since there were no children in her family, Gayle was closer than a daughter and looked after her as if she were her mother. Gayle will miss watching after her for years to come.

Edwinna was a very devout Christian and loved the Lord. When she was no longer able to go to church because she was legally blind, she and Gayle would watch and listen on the radio and TV. She looked forward to her friends, ladies from the church and church staff, that would come by her house and visit.

She was preceded in death by her parents and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

Survivors include Eugene Clements and wife Clara of Stanton, Texas; her many friends that would drive her and Gayle to and from doctors appointments in Amarillo; and a niece, Wilma Schwemmer of Wichita, Kan.

The family suggests memorials be to "The Roc" at First Baptist Church, 1000 E. 16th St., Dalhart, TX 79022.
