Resident of Martinez Mary Stuart Arnold died August 21 at the very young age of 98. She was born June 7, 1911 in Cripple Creek, CO, the third child born to Ralph and Winifred Arnold and the first to survive infancy. The family moved to Martinez when Mary was a baby. Mary attended public schools in Martinez, graduating from Alhambra High School in 1929. She attended the University of California and Armstrong Business College and was eventually hired as the executive secretary to the plant manager for Shell Oil in Martinez, a position she held for more than 35 years. She was a member of Eastern Star and active in the Martinez Congregational Church, where her parents were among the founders. She was preceded in death by her brother Ralph James, who died in 2006. Although she never married nor had children, she was lovingly called Nanny by her survivors: her two nieces Patricia Arnold, Martinez, CA and Mary Margaret Arnold Simpson and her husband Greg Simpson, Lawrence, KS; her great nephew Ryan James Arnold, Pleasant Hill, CA,; and great niece Mary Elizabeth Simpson, Lawrence, KS; and a great-grandnephew Ethan Ralph Arnold, Pleasant Hill, CA. During her lifetime, she cared for her aging parents, many friends, and took in numerous stray cats and dogs who became part of the family.
