Val Berniece Arnett- age 90, passed away peacefully with family at her side, on Monday, February 8th, 2021. Val was born to Clyde and Bessie Wininger in Henryville, IN on February 7th, 1931. She was raised in a family of 15 which included her siblings, Wilma, Elizabeth, Jean, Clyde, Walter, Melvin, Smith, Bob, Jim, Bill, Harry, and Ethel. In the late 50’s Val and her husband moved to Michigan where they raised their own family of four children.
Val loved like no other, spoiling children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and anyone else who crossed her path. She was a passionate Michigan football fan and notoriously bragged about the time she cared for Bo Schembechler’s Mom when she worked as a nurse at St. Joseph’s Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI. She later retired from there. Her love of coffee, cheese puffs, and the Detroit Tigers was not far from her love of U of M. She was well known for crocheting, “as long as it wasn’t too fancy of a project”. Her family loved the opportunity to hear her sing and many were fortunate to hear her rendition of “I Come to The Garden Alone”, a song she sang regularly even as her dementia set in. Singing reminded her of the days when she played piano at her Presbyterian Church and for the Eastern Stars. If you were lucky, you also had the opportunity to hear her songs about the cat in the shavings and brushing teeth with the bluebirds! As she sang, one would witness her spirit in full force, and listening to her sing was guaranteed to bring a smile on anyone’s face. Val will be missed dearly by her children; Jim (Ruth) Arnett of Tipton, MI, Sherry (the late Robert) Scarpelli of Berea, OH, Joyce (Robert) Barnard of Farwell and LaVerna Elowsky of Fowlerville, MI, as well as several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many other relatives and friends. As much as she will be missed, she is excitedly rejoining those loved ones who have gone on before her. Honoring Val’s and her family’s wishes, a cremation has taken place. Her remains will be returned to Henryville, IN and laid to rest on her mother’s gravesite. There are no services scheduled at this time. Please share your memories and condolences online at

Val will be missed greatly by everyone who knew her. Grandma Val was always in the front row at all the kids' games, whether it was a rainy cold football game, a soccer game, or basketball game. She would be the one all the kids came up to say hello to. They all knew Grandma Val. Some of my fondest memories are watching football or baseball games and hearing her light these guys up, because they never "got rid of the d@#! ball" fast enough for her... Val, you will be missed. It pains me to write this, but, Go Blue!
