Edith Millott Arnold , 96, died peacefully of natural causes
receiving effective tender care at Diamond WilIow, Misty
Ivy in Proctor, Minnesota on Tuesday December 8, 2020.
Born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania to Mabel PoweIl Millott
and Francis Auguste Millott on January 9, 1924. Edith
grew up in Windber, Pennsylvania and graduated from
Windber High School. She trained to become a registered
nurse at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia, graduating
in 1944. Edith proudly said it was the first hospital
in the new United States. She met her future husband,
Arthur Arnold, while still a nursing student, and they
were married at her parents' home in Windber in 1947.
She was a devoted mother and loyal wife, and moved 24
times living in 12 states before coming to Duluth in
1991 and to Hermantown in 2014. Edith enjoyed sewing
and cooking, was independent and caring, calm in emergencies
and bravely coped with the teenage death in Albert Lea
of her daughter Lucienne and her own life threatening
diseases. Edith is survived by her husband, a daughter
Karen Arthur, a son Matthew Arnold, a granddaughter
Kimberly Irland and great-grandchildren Zilpha and Bruce.
A private family burial in Albert Lea has been performed.
Memorials preferred to her Lake Superior College professional
nursing scholarship fund. Arrangements by Dougherty
Funeral Home, 600 E. 2nd. St., Duluth, MN 55805. 218-727-3555.
