ARNOLD, Sharon Kay (POPE) 69, of Phoenix, Arizona, passed away peacefully in the loving arms of her family and in the care of her beloved Hospice, on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012. She was born October 26, 1943 in Dayton, Ohio to the late Herbert and Kathleen Pope (Roads).

She graduated from Colonel White High, 1961. After graduation, she married the love of her life, William C. Arnold and together they made their dream of a beautiful young family a reality. Sharon loved to support her growing family's interest in sports and, with her husband, and the sponsorship of Renie's Hair and Fashions of Tipp City, established a softball team for her daughter, Kimberly and other local girls in 1977 at a time when options were limited for them. Interest was so strong that Tippecanoe High School responded by created their first girls' softball team. Sharon's support continued in the next generation as she and William proudly cheered on her granddaughter, Joy Katelyn Arnold's exceptional softball talents with the Lady Dragons Fastpitch Softball organization of Phoenix. Like her mother before her, Sharon was an amazing cook and has passed that legacy on to each generation of women in her family.

Sharon was a graduate of Sinclair CC, where she obtained her nursing degree in 1985. Upon graduation she worked at Kettering Medical Center and ultimately, Miami Valley Hospice. Hospice was her nursing passion and gift. While there, she was integral in establishing their first bereavement programs. She sensitively and compassionately helped families and their loved ones in the transition to the next life.

She is predeceased by her mother, father and her brother Larry Pope.

She is survived by
her treasured husband William;
daughter, Kimberly;
son, Charles and his wife Ann of Phoenix, and their daughter Joy Katelyn Arnold.

Funeral service at the Morton and Whetstone Funeral Home, 139 S. Dixie Dr. Vandalia, Ohio. Burial at Miami Valley Memory Gardens in Centerville, Ohio.
