Martha J. Arnestad, 88, of Everett, WA died June 21, 2009. She was born March 25, 1921 in Silvana, WA the daughter of John and Ingrid Brekhus and was raised in the Stillaguamish Valley on the Brekhus homestead on the Stillaguamish River. She lived in Everett for 60 years. She worked as a dental assistant in Seattle, WA, before meeting her husband, Robert C. Arnestad. They met on a Greyhound bus and were married in 1944. She was a member of the Sons of Norway, Our Saviors Lutheran Church and the Elks Club. She loved sewing, dancing, polka music, cooking, homemaking, camping, and going out to Kayak Point. She nurtured and loved people, and welcomed anyone into her home and loved them just as they were! She lived for her beloved children and grandchildren and would go to any limits for them. We will miss her smiles, laughter and most importantly her unconditional love.
