Edith Arnold

January 9, 1924 — December 8, 2020

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.
