December 24, 1940 – June 25, 2020
Shirley Ann Arnett, age 79, passed away peacefully on June 25, 2020 in her home in Yucaipa, California with her family by her side due to her battle with cancer, which was our loss but heavens gain. She was born December 24, 1940 in Hollywood, California to Frank and Lilly Brown. After only 3 short months of dating she married the love of her life Albert Lee Arnett and on September 20, 1958 in Phoenix, AZ, their adventure began, traveling and doing road construction all over California, Arizona, and Nevada. This year they would have celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary.
Shirley was quiet by nature, she never wanted to be the center of attention. She loved to read and always had several books at one time, her main book was the bible which she read through countless times. She was always game for anything, whether it was racing across the desert in sand rails, boating, camping, just time spent being with her family completed her. In her silence she was the backbone of our family. She taught us when we faced a situation, we didn’t know what to do the answer would be found on our knees. She was a prayer warrior that reached the throne of heaven. She raised us with values and a heart after God. Her one and only focus was to make sure that her family was ready to meet Jesus when he returned.
She loved working for the church whether it was making peanut brittle, greeting, helping decorate, teaching bible studies, any area she was needed.
Shirley is survived by her husband of 61 years and 9 months, her son Wayne Arnett and his wife Jeannie, daughter Lea Ann Hibbetts. Seven grandchildren that adored her and loved to play pranks on her any chance they got, Daryl Arnett, Shane Hibbetts, Jason Hibbetts, Jared Hibbetts, Daryn Arnett, Kyle Hibbetts, and Brittany Blevins. Plus 7 great grandchildren Brylee Hibbetts, Tyler Arnett, Parker Hibbetts, Tristan Hibbetts, Cody Arnett, Teagan Hibbetts and Logan Hibbetts. All of these she loved and touched deeply.
