We all mourn the passing and loss of Kay Arnold, who passed this past Tuesday at home here in Acton.
Kay was dear to all and touched the lives whom she met, and many others as well.
She was devoted to the Bedford VA Hospital, serving them with 50,000 volunteer hours - an incredible distinction, with a wing named in her honor.
Here in Acton, the Katherine Arnold Liberty Scholarship Fund was created in her honor, now named the Katherine Arnold Memorial Liberty Scholarship Fund.
Yes, she will be missed... but she will be remembered forever.
A funeral service will be in Beford on Saturday morning, April 25.
Part of the obituary, and a link to more information follows:
atherine “Kay” Arnold, 90, who served her community and the nation’s veterans as a tireless volunteer for more than 50 years, died April 21, 2015, at her Acton home.
Born February 4, 1925, in Weston, the only child of William and Florence (McLeod) Hayes, Kay moved with her family to Acton at age 10. She graduated from Acton-Boxborough Regional High School, and during her time there, she did machine work for eight months at Raytheon.
This was during World War II, which became the impetus for her life’s calling. She began volunteering when the soldiers started returning home from the war, and continued to do so while raising daughters Diane and Janet and son Philip. For the rest of her life, she was a fixture in veteran services, and on April 19, 2015, just two days before she died, Mrs. Arnold was honored for logging more than 50,000 hours of service since the early 1960’s at the Bedford Veterans Affairs Medical Center, also known as the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital. Even then, she was still driving twice a week to the hospital campus, which she navigated on a motorized scooter while fulfilling duties that variously during her half-century of service included veteran adviser, management assistant counselor, patient recreation leader and VA Voluntary Service Representative for American Ex-Prisoners of War. Most recently, she worked in the hospital’s drug and alcohol homeless program.

Ann Wofford will be on the ballot this November as a candidate for Congress from our Third Congressional District...
From Ann's web site:
"I have always desired to run for political office because I believed that it is the best means by which I may use my education, experiences and talents to serve my country. There was no Republican candidate running against the incumbent Democrat Niki Tsongas in the 3rd Congressional District when I decided to run for office. In effect, the Republicans were ‘ceding the seat.’ No member of Congress, especially Niki Tsongas, has earned another term. They need to fight for it. Too many good men and women have died to protect the right to vote and the folks in the third district weren’t going to have a choice this fall. I could no longer ‘do nothing’ and I decided to seek the Republican nomination for Congress. I am honored to serve as the Republican Candidate for the 3rd district, and I welcome your input and support."
