Obituary

Myrtle Irene Hill Arends
June 26, 1924 – April 30, 2019
Wenatchee, WA

Myrtle Irene Hill Arends was born on June 26, 1924, in Sunnyside, WA. She was the fifth child born to Eula (Fosket) and Grant G. Hill, and the only girl. Myrtle grew up in Sunnyside, WA, and began singing in her church when she was two. She was active in churches all of her life, not only singing, but organizing church choirs, directing music programs, serving as church organist, and church delegate for over fifteen years, serving as President of Missionary Societies. Her love for the Lord and church kept her very active serving on boards from Music Minister to Property and Finance during major building projects. She graduated from Sunnyside High School in 1942.

She married Arnold William ‘Bill’ Arends in July of 1943. This marriage was blessed with three children: Irene, Arnold, and Carl. The Arends family moved to Prosser, WA, in 1948, and spent many happy hours playing on the Yakima River water skiing with their family and friends. They ran the Arends Bakery and sold it in 1959, and moved to Anaheim, CA, where they remained for ten years.

In 1969, they moved to Wenatchee, WA, and bought H&H Upholstery, and the Griffith orchard, with a subsequent move to Entiat, WA. After three and a half years, they returned to California. Myrtle had earned her real estate license in Washington, working with Joan Clark, and enjoyed selling real estate. Upon their return to California, she joined the Forest Olson Real Estate team (which later became Coldwell Banker) and worked that job for over thirty years. She was an amazing woman who never forgot a birthday and always thought of everyone else's needs first. She loved ice cream and we teased her about wanting it with every meal.

After retiring, Myrtle and Bill started volunteering in County parks in California and Washington, including: Daroga, 25-MileCreek, and Johnny Creek on the Icicle River. Bill passed away in September, 2007, shortly after celebrating their 64th wedding anniversary. Myrtle has lived her last four years in the Colonial Vista apartments, making new friends and acquaintances. She always hoped to lead the walker parade with decorated walkers. She always had seasonal flowers and lights on her red walker and became well known in her church and at the apartments as the “flower lady.” Myrtle loved and served the Lord almost her entire life and expects to join her loved ones in heaven to praise and worship our God throughout eternity. PRAISE BE TO GOD.

She is survived by her children: Irene (Tim) Nichelson, Arnold Richard (Joyce Shumacher), and Carl (Sheryl) Arends; five grandchildren: Laura Nichelson, Alan Nichelson, Kim Arends, Dale Arends, and Chris Teviera; sisters-in-law: Ida (Arends) VanKlinken and Bertha Arends; seven great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, and other friends, such as the Hinton family, who considered her as their grandmother. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; her parents, Grant and Eula; and brothers: Arthur, Dale, Ralph, and Ellis.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Sunday, June 16, 2019, at the Sage Hills Church, 1601 Fifth St., Wenatchee, WA, with a reception to follow. It was her wish to have a fun celebration with colors and balloons. A Graveside Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, June 17, 2019 at the Lower Valley Memorial Gardens Cemetery, 7800 Van Belle Rd, Sunnyside, WA 98944. You are invited to view Myrtle’s online tribute at www.HeritageMemorialChapel.com to leave a condolence or share a memory. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel, East Wenatchee & Cashmere, WA.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your loved one. I have found the words at John 5:28 and 29 to be very encouraging. These words offer a promise of a resurrection, the hope of seeing your loved one again. Until that time comes, go to God in prayer. He will give you the strength that you need to make it through this difficult time (Isaiah 41:10).
