Gin was born Feb. 7, 1927, in Decorah, Iowa, to Conrad and Viola Arness. She graduated from Decorah High School in 1944 and worked for Bell Telephone. During the war years, she worked for a shipping and transportation company as a teletype operator in Washington, D.C.

Gin married Gordon Arneson Sept. 14th, 1947. This union produced four children who were the light of her life.

Gin lived in many states as she accompanied her husband at various construction sites. She enjoyed decorating, gardening, flowers, reading, anthropology, traveling, and being a wonderful homemaker.

She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She will be truly missed.

Gin is survived by sons Douglas (Jeni) of Glenwood Springs; Dean of Castle Rock; and David (Allyson) of Overland Park, Kan.;, daughter Janann Arneson of Loveland; five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
