Virginia Anne Arnold

ATKINS, Va. VIRGINIA ANNE ARNOLD, age 74, of Atkins, passed away Saturday, April 15, 2017 at Johnson City Medical Center, Johnson City, Tenn. Anne was born April 28, 1942 in Atkins, Va. to the late Joseph Bruce and Virginia Taylor Arnold. She was certainly N.Y Yankees biggest fan! One of the highlights of her life was visiting N.Y. and attending the Yankees games on three separate occasions in her life. Anne always assisted with class reunion organization, and was always willing to help others. She never met a stranger, and seemed as if she was known by everyone. Anne loved life! She was a very fashionable and never left the house without looking her best. She was always helping her sisters with their clothing choices. It is certain that Anne will be greatly missed. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two brothers, Donald and Butch Arnold; and a niece, Kelly Calahan. Anne is survived by three sisters, Mickey Arnold of Advance, N.C., Janice Martin of Atkins, Va., and Judy Dishner of Marion, Va.; numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Funeral services will be held Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 1p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with the Reverend Andrew Cundiff officiating. Burial will follow in Rose Lawn Cemetery, Marion, Va. The family will receive friends Thursday, from 11 a.m. until the time of service at Seaver-Brown Chapel. Expressions of sympathy may be made to the family at www.seaverbrown.com. Seaver-Brown Funeral Service and Crematory is honored to serve the Arnold Family.

Keeping the Arnold family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Anne and I worked at the bank together for more than 20 years, and I found her to be very helpful and pleasant to work with. She will be greatly missed.

Thank you Anne for being a good friend to myself and to our class of 1960. Also to the family I am truly sorry for your loss. Anne was truly a great person and friend.

I had the good fortune of starting my banking career fresh out of college in 1973 at First National Exchange Bank in Marion. Anne was already working there and "took me under her wing' so to speak and helped this young man learn about banking operations. I worked there with Anne for 12 years. I can not express how much her friendship and mentoring means to me. Every time I would see Anne, she always asked about me family and my job. When she worked in the Treasurer's Office, I did not mind paying taxes or buying vehicle county stickers because I would get to talk to my friend Anne. I never remember seeing Anne without a smile on her face and always kind things to say. I wish to express my sympathy to all her family and I know she will be missed.

Judy, Janice and Mickey, Anne was a wonderful sister, a,faithful church member, and a friend to all who knew her. I certainly counted her as a friend. Recall your precious memories to sustain you through this time. Please know that Anne is now loving you from another place. Anne will be missed by all of us who got to share her life. Tessie
