Arba was a member of the Selby UCC where she taught Sunday school, and was a member of the Ladies Aid. In her younger years she was a member of the  Selby Jaycettes.
ArbaDella and Mylo enjoyed more than 25 years traveling to Texas and Arizona as “snowbirds.” Arba and Hess were charter members of the Selby Weekend Loafers camping group. Arba was involved in every arts and crafts project from macramé to cross-stitch and shared her artistic talents in the later years through painting personalized cards and decorating birdhouses built by Mylo.
Arba and Hess travelled extensively in their motorhome and loved to entertain their many friends in Arizona and Akaska. She was known for her amazing cooking, German baking, wonderful sense of friendship and love of small dogs.
For the past two years Arba shared a room at the Selby Good Samaritan Center with her sister Priscilla. Hess and Ervin will miss the games of dominoes which Arba usually won. Hess and the girls would like to thank the wonderful staff for their loving care.
