Acheson Family,
Please know I am sorry I didn't see this obituary in time, I have been tending my Mom's needs as well. As a representative of the MacArthur family I want to express out deepest sympathy in the passing of your Mom. We had some great times together and always remember Sis as so nice, so funny, and sweet along with Ernie as well. Elvir St. was quite the place I guess. Hopefully my Dad is up there welcoming his old neighborhood friend to a new resting place in heaven. Please know she is safe and sound now and out of harm's way. Sincerely, Terry MacArthur, Peggy MacArthur, and aunts and uncles who remember her dearly.

Ge I am so sorry that you had to suffer for so long. I am sure that you are in heaven now and once again with Pa. Although you me will missed every day it is comforting to remember all the good times and hysterical laughter we all shared. You will be with me in my heart and soul every day and I know my blessings were great having you as my grandmother (and 1 of my 3 mothers :)
Rest in Peace,
Your first grandchild,

Aunt Sis...what a laugh! It was contagious.

"If every word I said, could make you laugh...I'd talk forever"

Peace to you.

Dear Cousins,
My heart is sadden by the loss of your mother. I will always remember the stories of my mother and Aunt Pat running around as teens, chasing the twins. That brings a smile to my face as I know they are now running around together in heaven. God bless you and your families and may his peace be upon you.
