Our hearts will never fully heal.
Our lives will never be the same.
Arilla Mandana Depew born March 10, 1948 in Burnside, Pennsylvania became our guardian angel on May 5, 2020 and is now resting easy in the arms of her loved one in heaven. Arilla was preceded in death by her father; Joseph Grant Turnbull, mother; Kitty Turnbull and two younger sisters; Jackie Koivu and Venita Martens. She leaves behind her younger brother John Turnbull. Arilla will always be remembered for her generous heart, wonderful stories, free spirit, giraffe collection and the love she had for her dear friends and family. She lit up the room with her smile and had a unique way of making everyone that knew her feel special. She accepted everyone as they were and never turned her back on someone in need. She enjoyed working at Ponderosa for many years and was well known to customers and fellow co-workers. Arilla was a devoted mother to her four children; Chester Reynolds (Cyndi Zeigler), Michael Reynolds (Lori White), Candy Baker and Jeremy Baker (Valarie Baker). Her greatest joys in life were her grandchildren; Nicholas, Jacob, Trisha Sue, Rachel, Erika, Jonathon, Annmarie, Gabriel, Madison and her great grandchildren; Braydyn, Braxtyn, Bentley, Noah, Matthew, and Annabelle. She will forever be missed by her family and the many special friends she made throughout life.
Take a deep breath in heaven mom.

We love you.
A celebration of life gathering will be determined at a later date.
