Rebecca Arnett

Ware Shoals – Rebecca “Becky” Elledge Lothridge Arnett, 87, widow of Hunter Arnett of Higgins Drive, died Saturday, March 11, 2023 at Patewood Post Acute Center in Greenville.

Becky was an extraordinary woman who radiated love and joy. She was tough as nails, glamorous, and fun.

She will be loved, cherished, and missed always.
