Sharon Lorene Arnold of Glasford, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Monday afternoon June 24, 2024. She passed peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving family.

Sharon was born on February 4, 1941 to John and Lorene Hammond Coates.

On July 24, 1960, she married the love of her life, Jimmie Lee Arnold who survives.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her three brothers, John Coates, Donald Coates and Roger Coates, and three of her sisters, Hazel Norad, Barbara Heitzman and Mary Nickelson.

Sharon graduated from Timber Township High School in 1959, and 30 years later celebrated her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse by graduating from Spoon River College and Graham Hospital School of Nursing.

She worked as a nurse for 17 years before retiring in 2006 from the Tazewell County Health Department.
