Arwilla Caroline Williams

March 8, 1928-May 18, 2009



Arwilla was born on March 8, 1928 in Berwyn, Nebraska to Clarence and Hester Arnold. The family moved to Medford, Ore. when Arwilla was nine years old. There she met the love of her life, Bill. They were married on June 26, 1947. They soon had two children, Caroline and Dan. They moved to Salem when Caroline entered school so that she could attend the Oregon School for the Deaf. Arwilla and Bill joined the fellowship of the Salem Free Methodist Church and made many life-long friends. Arwilla was involved in many areas at church throughout the years.

She is survived by her husband, Bill; children, Caroline and Dan; sister, Arlene; five grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren, one great-great grandson; and many nephews and nieces. Her brother, Dillon and sister, Jeannetta preceded her in death. Her family was very important to Arwilla and she was known to put everything aside to go to the aide of any one of them. She will be truly missed.

Private burial will be at Belcrest Memorial Park under the direction of City View Funeral Home. Public memorial service will be 2:00 p.m. Saturday, May 30, 2009 at Salem Free Methodist Church, 4545 Silverton Rd. NE, Salem.
