Mary Nan Arnold was born in the bedroom of her parent’s home on their small cattle and wheat farm near Rozel, in Pawnee County, Kansas on February 8, 1934, to Charles and Mary Arnold. Her earliest memories were taking care of chickens; from gathering eggs to “harvestin” the chickens for family meals. She decided early in life that she preferred cooking the chickens to harvesting them. She remembered helping on the farm and often cooking for all of her hungry family to refuel everyone for the tasks at hand. This actually became a lifelong labor of love for Nan. She cooked hundreds, if not thousands of meals for hungry family members, visitors, hired men and custom wheat cutters (who usually showed up for supper around 11:45 p.m.) Read the full obituary.

Thank You From Ashland, Kansas

The road to recovery from the March 6, 2017 wildfires will be long. The rebuilding has begun. The support through donations of hay, fencing supplies, food, clothing, cattle and money from across America is a debt we can never repay. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Contributions to the wildfire relief efforts can be made to AshlandCF.com or KLA.org. 100% of the proceeds will be distributed to those directly affected by the fires.
