Goodbye Grandma Huhn

On Saturday morning we lost my second grandmother in 3 months. I got the call @ 6:53 am Saturday morning -- I was in a great mood because I was 30 minutes away leaving for a girls getaway weekend. But, that was quickly changed. I lost it when my Boppa called. This death was so different than my Grandma Rhoads death where she had been "gone" for so long before she passed away. I had the experience to live with my grandparents twice. The first time I lived with them was a year before I married Ryan & most recently the last year and a half in our successful endeavor to become debt free.

There are so many things I want to write about her but I'm hoping to do that tomorrow. For right now here is her obit.

Arlene Huhn, 78, of Nevada, passed away Saturday, October 8, 2011, at Rolling Green Village in Nevada following a long battle with Parkinsons Disease.

Arlene was born January 6, 1933, in Nevada to Isaac "Ike" and Myrtle (Cook) Tudor. She graduated from Fernald High School in 1951, and married her childhood sweetheart, James Daniel Huhn, March 15, 1953. Arlene was a 40 year member of the Central Presbyterian Church, most recently attending Family of Faith Church.

Arlene loved good music and influenced many young people teaching piano lessons. She also enjoyed singing, playing the piano and organ, woodworking, sewing, knitting and gardening. In her younger years, she was active in sports being a stand-out forward and softball pitcher. In addition, she was a 4-H leader for over 20 years. Arlene was a devoted wife and mother, and loved to spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchild.

Those left to cherish her memory include, her husband of 58 years, Dan of Nevada; her son, Keith (Marce) of Nevada; her daughter, Holly (Dan) Page of Lawrence, KS; her twin sister, Darlene Adkins of Elkhart, IN; her sister-in-law, Thelma Tudor of MN; seven grandchildren, Ashley (Ryan), Carly, Haley, Riley, Kyle, Kirby and Brian; one great-grandson, Tucker; along with many other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Earl Tudor; and one brother-in-law, George Adkins.

Memorial services will be held 11 a.m. Thursday, October 13, 2011, at Central Presbyterian Church in Nevada. Visitation will be 5:30-8 p.m. on Wednesday evening at Bacon Funeral Home in Nevada.

Memorial contributions may be made to Family of Faith Church, Parkinson's Foundation or the Rolling Green Resident Activity Fund.

Bacon Funeral Home and Crematory in Nevada is handling arrangements.

Arlene was so amazing! When I was little, and she was the organist at CPC, I used to turn pages for her during church services. She will be missed. There in spirit on Thursday.
