February 20, 1923 - December 19, 2011
Arnold, Rose Dale Foster, 88 years of age, passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 19, 2011. Rose was an amazing and devoted Christian woman who loved her family and honored her Savior throughout her life. Affectionately known as Granny to everyone she encountered, she will be greatly missed by her surviving children, Leonard (Shirley) Arnold, Glynn (Marsha) Arnold, and Sue Hollis, eight grandchildren; Leonard Arnold Jr., Cara Stone, Tracy Ryan, Alan Arnold, Lesli White, Angie Carey, Lee Shreeve, and Regina Lopez, and nineteen great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Samuel E. Arnold, and daughters, Catherine Martin and Patricia Arnold. We will most miss her wonderful sense of humor, gentle spirit, fabulous recipes, and tremendous love. She was born on February 20, 1923 as the youngest child to Julius and Etta Foster in Smithville, TN. In 1940, she married the love of her life, Samuel "Pap" Arnold to whom she was married for 59 years. Throughout her life, Granny was truly an individual willing to help others above herself and sought ways to make each person she encountered feel better for having met and known her. The pallbearers for the funeral will be her grandsons; Leonard Arnold Jr., Alan Arnold, Lee Shreeve, great-grandsons; Adam Shreeve, Houston Stone, Zack Shreeve, and Mitchell Ryan, and son-in-law, Rick Martin. Ken Castleberry, her pastor at Parkway Baptist Church will lead the service honoring her life.
