Ora Beatrice Arbaugh
In loving memory of Ora Beatrice Johnson Arbaugh, 90, of Culloden. She left this world to be with the Lord on October 7, 2013, after a prolonged illness.
She was born August 18, 1923, in Putnam County, to David Johnson and Sarah Lemaster Johnson. This loving and giving woman was a blessing to the people who surrounded her; she was the last surviving child in a family of 15 siblings. She graduated from Winfield High School with the class of 1942 and was preceded in death by her husband of over 50 years, Charles Ray Arbaugh. She was an active member of Forrest Burdette United Methodist Church in Hurricane. Many of the church members remember her fondly for her onion pie that she would bring to church luncheons. Her life was filled with family and friends who loved her; she spent her time caring for them and visiting the neighbors around her block. The most important thing to her was her family, and that included her "church family" or others she referred to as "just like family." She worked tirelessly during the year; the highlights of her year were family reunions, Myrtle Beach vacations, summer visits from family - especially those by her great-grandchildren, Nicholas and Sydney - cookouts and Thanksgiving.

She is survived by and lovingly remembered by her daughter, Betty Jane Archer and husband, Gary, of Hurricane; her son, Larry Ray Arbaugh and wife, Connie, of Culloden; two grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, extended family members, neighbors and her church family. She will be greatly missed.

Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Wallace Funeral Home, Milton.

Funeral service will be conducted at 11 a.m. Thursday, October 10, at Wallace Funeral Home, Milton, by officiant Don Gatewood. Burial will be in Mount Vernon Cemetery, Teays Valley.

The family would like to express our deep gratitude and appreciation to the staff of Rose Terrace Health and Rehabilitation Center for the wonderful care and compassion shown to her and our family. Your kindness will never be forgotten.
