Print
Verla Christene Van Arsdale, age 94, formerly of Eau Claire, Michigan, died Thursday, November 22, 2018, at Beloit Health and Rehabilitation Center, Beloit, Wisconsin. Verla was born in Lincoln, Nebraska on December 25, 1923, to David and Minnie (Johnson) Vande Vere.
Verla attended Maplewood Academy in Hutchinson, Minnesota. She then attended Emmanuel Missionary College (now Andrews University), in Berrien Springs, Michigan, and nursing school at the White Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles, California.
Verla married William (Bill) Van Arsdale on December 21, 1944 in Glendale, California. They were married for more than 70 years. She loved music, art, gardening and cooking. Verla was a lifelong member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Their first child, Cherie, was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan during Bill’s medical residency. After Bill’s Army service in the Philippines, they moved to Manistique, Michigan where Linda and Jim were born. Following more training for Bill in California, they moved to Detroit, Michigan.
In 1961 they accepted a call to enter mission service in Seoul, Korea, where Bill served four years as a surgeon. Then they moved to Taipei, Taiwan, where Bill was medical director at Taiwan Adventist Hospital for ten years. While in Taiwan, Verla taught elementary school for missionary children, and they adopted Judy as a teenager. They returned to the United States, first to Delta, Colorado, then to Athens, Michigan. They retired in Eau Claire, Michigan. They moved to Janesville, Wisconsin in 2010 to live with Jim and Carol.
Survivors include: children: Cherie (Lee) Forsythe of Downers Grove, Illinois; Linda (Larry) Martin of Dayton, Nevada; James (Carol) Van Arsdale of Janesville, Wisconsin; Judy Van Arsdale of Yucaipa, California; 4 grandsons: Jeffrey (Rebecca) Forsythe, Kevin Forsythe, Jonathan (Marleigh) Van Arsdale, Timothy (Suzanne) Van Arsdale; one great granddaughter: Madelyn Van Arsdale, and a number of nieces and nephews.
