The former Patricia Jane Pinney was born on Friday the 13th of April 1928 in Clinton, Iowa, to Margaret Carney Pinney and Byron Russell Pinney. She attended Ferry Hall prep school and Rockford College, and graduated with a BA in elementary education from University of Iowa. She married Louis Croft Arp Jr., on Aug. 12, 1950, and worked as a kindergarten teacher prior to becoming a full-time mother, wife and community advocate.


Patricia was a volunteer, active in the arts and philanthropy. She worked for Meals on Wheels, church committees, and charitable fundraisers, and was a supporter of the Quad City Botanical Center, Putnam Museum, Chapter HB of PEO Sisterhood, Carolyn Getz Circle of Kings Daughters, and Quad City Garden Club. She was an honorary director of the Quad City Symphony and a director of Pinney Printing Company. Formerly, she served as a Colonial Dame, as past president of the Rock Island County Medical Society Auxiliary and volunteered for the Rock Island County Historical Society. She was a founding member of the Southpark Tennis Club, where she played in a league for over 30 years and enjoyed golfing.

She loved her family, supported the endeavors of her children, and coordinated frequent family get-togethers. She tolerated and supported the adoption of numerous family pets including raccoons, an arctic ground squirrel, horses, a pony, gerbils, hamsters, cats and numerous hunting dogs. She loved cooking and gardening, and enjoyed wintering in Naples, Fla., with family and friends. Patricia celebrated the positive aspects of everyday living and taught those around her to "maximize the potential" of every moment. She believed in opportunity but never taking advantage of others. She was always helpful to those in need. In recent years she was attended to by family friend, Sherry Reynolds.

Patricia Pinney Arp Eulogy
We gather today to honor the memory and celebrate the life of Patricia Pinney Arp. My name is Molly Newell. As the number #3 child and number #2 daughter, I share a perspective of Patricia on behalf of the “kiddos”: Gretchen Arp Higgins, Louis Croft Arp III, myself and my little brother, Charles Pinney Arp. Patricia touched many lives, and has been described by many as the most optimistic and positive person they ever met.

She was born a redhead in Clinton, IA, at a joyous time preceding the Great Depression. Her impressionable years taught her that everyone has dignity. Perhaps her greatest life-lesson: she learned to “accentuate the positives” of everyday life. She grew up with a sense of balance, responsibility, and an intuition that she described as common sense.

She was blessed with a baby sister, Margo, and after she was in college, a baby brother, John. On more than one occasion I heard the story of Mom being embarrassed when introducing her pregnant mother to her college friends. She met Louis Arp Jr. in Iowa City at a party with friends.

In 1950 she married our Dad, and travelled with him through his medical training, internships & residency. They lived conservatively in small walkup apartments until two years after the third child. I was told by my mother that that if you can handle one kid, you can handle two...but that third child complicates everything. Our father moved back to Moline with his family of five to begin his professional career as a surgeon. We moved to a modest house where my mother embraced her duties as a Doctor’s wife, and mother. And then there was the fourth child, four years after me.

Patricia put family first. She demonstrated unconditional love towards all of us before we knew what it was. She taught us (boys and girls) how to properly set a table, how to garnish a plate & to ask to be excused from the table. We couldn’t leave the table until we “cleaned” our plate, including vegetables. She loved to cook for us. We ate dinner around the family table together almost every night, except for a select number of years when Patricia cooked and served three dinners per night to accommodate kids at sports practice, school events or riding horses, and Dad working late or working “on call”. If we were still hungry after dinner, she would make more salad “in a jiffy”. We had chores like most kids those days. We were taught to be respectful on the phone and to pray to God. I figured we didn’t pray to Jesus because we should go straight to the top. That’s what Mom did.

Mom cherished her relationships with neighbors. She taught us about violets growing in the ravine and May Day baskets for neighbors. She taught us when to come home from playing kick the can; and how to apologize with sincerity for the mischief of our numerous pets, especially the raccoons.

She was a reader, in more than one book club at a time. I think her favorite must have been the Power of Positive Thinking because she made me read it twice as a teenager. When I asked her about sex she answered: why do think we have all these pets?

She was a fabulous gardener, good golfer and tennis player. Her relationships with others were warm and open, because she was a great listener. She and Dad routinely socialized with four other couples, and friends of these couples, over a fifty year span of time through an organization they called Steak Club. Together they discussed and solved the world’s problems, and celebrated the accomplishments of each other’s children. That’s when I learned what caterwauling was. We thought everyone in our lives was an uncle or an aunt, because Patricia cultivated a culture of compassion, familiarity and inclusion. When I turned 16 I learned it was not the “norm” for in-laws to be best friends.

Our grandparents on my Dad’s side were best friends with our grandparents on my Mom’s side largely because of my mom. Her relationships with parents and in-laws were extremely special. She had a talent for bringing people together, and she loved making people happy. Her recipe for happiness included mutual respect and being fair. She believed in being “fair”, or “more than fair”, always giving more than you get, and as she often described it, “giving more than your fair share.”

Patricia could spot the good in everyone, and made each of her children want to be the best person we could possibly be. She always told us to “maximize the potential” of every opportunity. It was her mantra. She concentrated on the “good” of every situation. She was a cheerleader for the underdog, and she could keep a secret, like a best friend, even if you weren’t her best friend. She had a picture ID in her wallet that allowed her to own firearms and purchase ammunition, and our Dad was really proud of that.

Patricia was extremely generous, especially with her time. She gave to others through friendship, through service, and charity. She liked being busy, and often said so. She walked the dog twice a day regardless of the weather. She considered the weather to be heaven-sent, and nothing to complain about. She loved spending holidays in Naples, FL with her in-laws, her children, extended family, friends, and the family dog. As an empty nester, she and my Dad resided in Naples during the winter. For family celebrations, graduations and anniversaries over the years, she was the glue. She used to sing this song “the more we get together the happier we’ll be”. If you know that song from the Barney show, we are pretty sure he got it from her.

Patricia was a willing traveling companion for each of her children and with our Dad, moving forward with us through transitions in our lives. She traveled to Africa, Alaska, Hawaii, Bermuda, New Zealand and Australia in addition to annual family vacations.

She remained positively elegant in her older years. She never gave up on anybody or any cause she cared about. The world around her continued to change but her values and her perspective remained timeless. She was happy. Her favorite saying of late was “HOOP de DO!” Our mother could say things like that and still sound graceful.

She was a true treasure on earth. May she rest in peace knowing she has made a positive difference here.

I would like to read a poem from my mother’s handwriting. She used a loopy
script and a fountain pen for the following words:
Count your garden by the flowers
Never by the leaves that fall
County your days by golden hours
Don't remeber clouds at all
Count your nights by stars not shadows
Count your life by smiles not tears
And with joy every morning
County your age by criends not tears

so Patricia, if you are watching now, be assured that your children, “ your Kiddos”, are Maximizing the Potential! Please know that your kindness towards others, your compassion, and your values will live on through each of us.
HOOP de DO! Patricia,
and Tootle Loo!5

Louis Arp Jr.
Dr. Louis C. Arp Jr., of Moline, and Naples, Fla., a well-known Moline physician and surgeon, died on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2006, in the care of his family in Moline, following an extended illness. He was 79 years old.

Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 9, at First Congregational Church, Moline. Burial will be in Moline Riverside Cemetery, where military honors will be presented by American Legion Post 246. Visitation will be from 3 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8, at Trimble Funeral and Cremation Center, Moline. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in memory of Dr. Arp to the American Parkinson's Disease Association, 135 Parkinson Ave., Staten Island, NY 10305 or a favorite charity.

Dr. Arp, a third-generation surgeon, was born July, 1, 1927, in Moline, the oldest of Dr. Louis Arp Sr. and Eleanor Harned Arp's three children. He attended high school at Shattuck School, Faribault, Minn., although he did not graduate.

In 1944, at age 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy with some difficulty. He was successful upon his second attempt -- after memorizing the color blindness test. He served 18 months as Seaman First Class aboard the USS Bennington and USS Salerno Bay, both aircraft carriers in the Pacific fleet.

After the war, he attended Augustana College for one semester. He then attended the University of Iowa, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree, and later graduated from the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

On Aug. 12, 1950, he married Patricia Pinney of Clinton, Iowa, who was also a student at the University of Iowa. The couple lived in Baltimore, Md., for four years while Dr. Arp studied medicine, and then moved to Chicago for a one-year rotating internship at St. Luke's Hospital. In 1954, the family moved back to Iowa City, Iowa, for Dr. Arp's surgery training at the University of Iowa and to complete his surgical residency at the Veteran's Hospital there.

The family settled in Moline in 1958, where Dr. Arp joined the medical practice of his father and uncle, Dr. August Henry Arp.

Dr. Arp served as a board member and president of the Rock Island County Medical Society; president of the medical staffs of Lutheran Hospital and Moline Public Hospital; a board member of the Moline Public Library and the Rock Island Arsenal Golf Club. In addition, he was a member of the board of Pinney Printing Company, Clinton, Iowa. He also served on the boards of Selective Service System, and Lutheran Hospital Foundation, later to become United and then Trinity. He was a member of the American College of Surgeons and was board certified in general surgery.

He was a lifelong member of the First Congregational Church, Moline; a member of the Hole-in-the-Wall Golf Club, Naples; the Port Royal Beach Club, Naples; and the Swan Lake Club, Henry, Ill.

Dr. Arp's favorite activity was traveling with family and hosting get-togethers annually at a cabin located in Clark, Colo., near Steamboat Springs. He was an avid hunter, loved the outdoors and especially loved farming. He was a bird enthusiast long before bird watching became popular, a conservationist and a steward of the environment. Following his retirement in 1990, Dr. and Mrs. Arp spent their winters living in the family's Naples home.

His loving wife, Patricia, survives him along with his daughters and sons-in-law, Gretchen and Andrew Higgins, Morrison, Colo., and Molly and Michael Newell, Davenport; his sons and daughters-in-law, Louis C. and Laura Arp III, Raleigh, N.C., and Charles Arp, Clinton; along with five grandchildren, Allison Arp, Kelsey Arp, Tricia Higgins, Andrew Higgins and April Newell. Also surviving him is a sister and brothers-in-law, Josephine and Edward deSilva, Davenport, and Edgar Folk, Iowa City. Dr. Arp was preceded in death by his parents and one sister, Mary Folk.

Dwight is the father of my brother in law... Merritt. I did not know Dwight extremely well.... but I had the privilege of spending time with him on several occasions and found him to be very friendly with a quick sense of humor! Merritt describes him as a "pot stirrer" as he often enjoyed stirring up trouble for a good laugh or two. Dwight was the father of 6 children.... five girls, Carol, Erin, Linda, Karlen, Megan and one boy... Merritt. He was married to his beautiful wife Barbara for 50 plus years.

Dwight served in WWII, the Korean War and Vietnam. He began his military career in the Army and continued to serve throughout his life in the Army Air care (sic), Coastguard Reserve and the Air force. He retired from the military as a Lieutenant Colonel. Dwight received his education from the University of Dubuque and after retiring from the Air force began teaching 8th grade science. He retired from his teaching career in 1988.

Dwight was an avid golfer and won several tournaments at his local country club. He also thoroughly enjoyed hunting and hunted for anything from wild boars to deer. Dwight was an exceptional football player in college and was a letter winner. His brother Richard was also a very talented football player and was sought after from the Chicago Bears. Richard also served in the military and was MIA for many years until he was assumed passed and gone.

Dwight served as a Deacon at the Presbyterian Church and was also a 32nd Degree Mason.

Dwight's health deteriorated for quite some time before he passed away in 2003. He is very much loved and missed by his family. Dwight left behind his wife Barbara and his four living children.... Linda,Carol, Megan, Merritt and Erin.

Memorial Day 2011:
Karlen M. Price
May 3, 1965- December 12, 2000

Karlen is the sister of my brother in law Merritt Price and the daughter of Dwight Price. Karlen passed away in December of 2000 at the young age of 35. She passed from a brain aneurysm.

Karlen was the second youngest of 6 children and one of 5 sisters. She attended Stevenson College and worked as an underwriter for an insurance company. Karlen resided in Austin, Texas when she passed away.

I had only met Karlen on a few occasions.... but I recall one time was around Christmas and as a joke she had bought my sister and her husband foam baseball bats so they could beat on each other when they got irritated with one another!! She must have gotten Dwight's sense of humor!!!!

Merritt married my sister in 1994 and they had a baby girl in 2004 whom they named.... Karlen Madeline.
