Mansfield, Ohio
Formerly of Marion, Ohio

Christie A. Arnold, age 63, of Mansfield and formerly of Marion, died peacefully early Friday morning,July 4, 2014, following a battle with cancer at her daughter’s home in Marion.

On April 27, 1951, Christie was born in Bakersfield, California, one of two children of the late Frank Roes and Mary (Terzo) Roes Sherer. As a family they moved to Marion, Ohio, when she was a child. She graduated from Marion Harding High School.

For over 25 years, Christie worked in the engineering department of Gorman Rupp in Mansfield, until she retired in 2011.

Very faithful, she was raised in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Marion.

Christie loved spending time with her family, especially her beloved grandchildren. She also loved tending to her flower garden at home, and loved the companionship of her dog, Gracie.

She was a strong and independent woman, who was also very love-able.

She will be missed by her two children: Chela Arnold of Marion, and Brad Arnold of Mansfield; six grandchildren: Jazmin, Alijah, Alex, Olivia, Blake, and Zaine; one great-granddaughter, La-Niyah; a brother, Jerry Roes of Tennessee; several nieces and nephews; and her former husband, Leonard Arnold.

Her family will greet friends from 4 – 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 8th, at the Denzer-Farison-Hottinger & Snyder Funeral Home, 360 E. Center St., Marion. Services honoring her life will follow at 6:00 p.m., with Tom Stimson officiating.

Memorial contributions may be made to her family and they may be sent to the care of the funeral home.

Denzer-Farison-Hottinger & Snyder Funeral Home is honored to have been chosen to serve Christie’s family and your condolences may be expressed to them by visiting

  • Chela I am so sorry for your loss. We love you. If you need ANYTHING let me know. I miss you. Love Amanda and Brianna

  • To the family, sorry for your loss. The lost of a love one can be very painful, what brought me great comfort was Gos’s word the bible. John 5:28,29 says: ” All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out” God hates death, He views death as an enemy. 1Corinthians 15:26 says: ” He will bring the enemy death to nothing” so we have a hope and a promise of seeing our love ones again. Again I give my condolences to the family

  • I remember Christie as a very friendly and enjoyable person. It was a pleasure to know her and to take out part numbers from her at work. I was saddened when I heard of her passing.
