Alva O. Snow Arnold

BLUEWELL — Alva O. Snow Arnold, age 51 of Bluewell, WV entered peacefully into rest on October 31, 2013 at her home.

Alva was born January 5, 1962 in Mercer County to the late Alvis and Pansy Snow.

Preceding Alva was both parents, Alvis and Pansy Snow, husband, Charles Thomas Arnold II, brothers-in-law, Danny Arnold, Doug Brimm and Harry Campbell, nieces, Carmella Wiley and Victoria Carty and a nephew, Sherman Wiley.

Surviving Alva is her only child, Charles Thomas Arnold III aka Tommy, two grandchildren whom she loved with all her heart and were the sparkle in her eye, Christopher Dylan and Madison Grace Arnold. She is also survived by sisters: Pearl Brimm of Glenwood, Vickie Carroll of Bluefield, Diana Scott of Bluefield, Debbie Roach of Virginia Beach, Bobbie Campbell of Hamlet, NC, Angela Carty of Seveirville, TN and April Snow-Hunt of Wingate, NC. Brothers: William Frost Jr. of Bluefield, Wesley Frost of Roanoke, VA, James Frost of Bluefield, Sammy Frost of Welch, Alvis Snow of Monroe, NC and Adam Snow of Bluewell. Also surviving Alva is her father and mother-in-law Charlie and Nellie Arnold of Bluefield and sister-in-law, Paula Arnold-Johnson of KY and special friend who was like a sister to her, Carolyn Rose of Bluefield. Numerous nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly and they loved her are also left to cherish her memory.

Alva absolutely loved tigers. If you gave her a gift that had a tiger on it, her face would light up and you would get the biggest bear hug ever! She also volunteered in many animal rescues where she saved so many animals that would have otherwise been put to sleep. She loved to fish. If you couldn't find Alva, she was usually no farther than one of her favorite fishing holes.

A service celebrating the life of Alva Arnold will be held at Cravens-Shires Funeral Home on Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 11:00 AM with Reverend Roger Carroll officiating. Pallbearers will be nephews and friends of the family. She will be laid to rest near her parents in Woodlawn Memorial Gardens in Bluewell.

Friends may call on Monday evening from 6-8 PM at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking to please send donations to Cravens-Shires with her name on it to help ease the financial burden of such an unexpected passing of their loved one.

Online condolences will be accepted at www.cravens-shires.com

Cravens-Shires Funeral Home, 3431 Coal Heritage Road (Bluewell), Bluefield, WV 24701 is serving the family.
