Karen Arnold of O’Fallon, MO, passed away at the age of 60 on Thursday, July 2, 2020. She is survived by her beloved husband, Thomas Arnold; her children, Jessica Arnold and Jennifer Arnold; her father, Robert Ramming; her siblings, twin sister Sharon (John) Warner and Robin (Jeff) Cerney; her siblings-in-law, Tim (Judy) Arnold, Mark (Debbie) Arnold, Steve (Jennifer) Arnold, and Bill (Donna) Arnold; her mother-in-law, LaVonne Arnold; her little dog Foxy; and her many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Karen was preceded in death by her mother, Marion Ramming; and her father-in-law, Loris Arnold.

Karen was very devout in her faith and an active member at her church, First Freewill Baptist of O’Fallon. She was interested in genealogy and took the time to research her family roots and trace her ancestry. Karen was passionate about her many hobbies and her creative spirit led her to always have something to work on, whether that be basket weaving, sewing, needlepoint, drawing, or painting. When Karen wasn’t focused on one of her projects, she liked to take on the challenge of logic puzzles. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Memorial contributions in Karen’s name may be made to Better Breathers of the American Lung Association (https://www.lung.org/help-support/better-breathers-club).

    candle 1What a wonderful Godly woman. She was so knowledgeable in the word and in the midst of all she faced health wise she was always concerned for others. She seemed to always be smiling and looking forward to better things ahead. She has left a lasting legacy of Christ and I see it being carried on in both Jessica and Jennifer. Our prayers are with Tom, Jessica, Jennifer, and the family
