She was also preceded in death by a son, James Chester Arthurs; a daughter, Mary Jane Hoelfelmeyer; a grandson, Christopher Hoelfelmeyer; a brother, John Buckler Jr.; three sisters, Bertha May Cordell, Lucille Samson and Pauline Conn; and an infant great granddaughter.

Surviving are her children, two daughters, Oma Mabry of Morehead and Donna Patterson of Olive Hill; two sons, Charles (Gracy) Arthurs of Columbus, Ohio, and Mark (Peggy) Arthurs of Thornsville, Ohio; and two great granddaughters, Mary and Christina Stevens, whom she raised from very young ages.

We can’t forget another part of the family that was very dear to her heart, loving and faithful, her 11-year-old sidekick “Cuddles,” her poodle.

We want to give very special thanks to Jamie and Amy Clay, devoted friends and neighbors. They were always there for her, whether it was to share their love and friendship or a helping hand.
