Arlene Arment Barton

1924-2015

Early on the morning of August 2nd, after 91 years on this Earth, our beautiful mother, mother-in-law and grandmother departed peacefully from Casey’s Pond for a new life in Heaven. Arlene Barton was special in a way that few people are. She showed us how to look for the positive in everything in life, to be kind to others, to love nature, to trust in God, to work hard and be proud of ourselves, and that family is the most important thing we have. Along with the “big stuff”, our lives were blessed by our “angel on Earth” every day in a myriad of smaller ways — With Grandma we learned to appreciate the finer things in life: walking through the wildflowers, enjoying a root beer float, curling up with a good book, or listening to the birds sing. She led simply by example and by her faith, as she quietly touched the lives and hearts of everyone she met. Arlene is survived by her sister, Geraldine Boaz; her brother, Jack Arment; her 3 children, Lynne Bier (Joe), Sandie Stinnett (Tony), and Alex (Jeanne), along with 13 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, and a host of loving nieces, nephews, friends and admirers. Funeral services will be in Virginia in October; Arlene will then be laid to rest next to her husband, Alexander J. Barton. In Steamboat Springs, on a date yet to be determined, a celebration of life will be held at Casey’s Pond. The family requests, in lieu of flowers, that contributions be made in Arlene’s name to NWCVNA Hospice and Palliative Care 940 Central Park Dr. Ste. 101 Steamboat Springs, CO. 80487, whose caregivers, along with the caregivers at Casey’s Pond, provided Arlene with dedicated, compassionate and comforting assistance that made a tremendous difference during the final days of Arlene’s life.
