Lois Eloise Arnett of West Liberty, KY, entered into the presence of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Tuesday, November 14, 2023, at Nicholasville Nursing and Rehabilitation in Nicholasville, KY. She lived 93 years, 7 months, and 10 days. She was born on Friday, April 4, 1930, in Boyd County, Ashland, KY, the daughter of Kelly and Ruby Perkins. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years and 10 months, Hager Arnett Jr; one brother and one sister: Harry Perkins and Nina Perkins. Surviving are her brother Bill Perkins of Mt. Pleasant, PA; one daughter, Gloria and Chuck Middleton of Nicholasville, KY; two sons, Derek and Debbie Arnett of Waco, KY and Lynn and Angela Arnett of Georgetown, KY; six grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
Lois graduated from Morgan County High School in 1948. She married Hager Arnett Jr on March 26, 1953. She was a homemaker and loved her family well. She was active in Homemakers and the bowling league. She would spend much of each summer canning, making pickles, sauerkraut, tomato juice, and freezing produce from the garden. She was skilled in crochet and sewing, making many afghans and quilts. She loved the Dogwood Festival and the Sorghum Festival. She attended Index Community Church and was an active member for several years.
She experienced mental illness for many years and was cared for by her husband until her physical needs required the skills provided by a nursing home. She was called granny by the staff and was very appreciative of their care, most days. She dearly loved her younger son Lynn—asking the staff if he got off the bus, worrying about where he was, etc. She was given a baby doll—her mothering instincts kicked in, and she cared for that doll all the way up to her passing—calling him Lynn Christian. Seemingly a little misplaced, her love for him gave her great comfort and solace in these later years.
Funeral service 1 p.m. Friday, November 17, 2023, at Potter Funeral Home with Rev. James Allen and Elder Tom Steele officiating. Burial to follow in the Walnut Grove Wheeler Cemetery, Stacy Fork, KY. Visitation will be from 11:00 a.m. up to the time of the funeral.
Pallbearers are her grandchildren: Ryan Arnett, Brittany Colston, Christian Arnett, and Lucas Powell; her dear neighbors: Bob Phipps and Greg Phipps.
