Arleen Higham

Feb. 23, 1962 — April 15, 2013

Arleen left this life to meet God on April 15, 2013, after a long, courageous battle with leukemia. She passed away peacefully at Stanford Medical Center with her husband Hank and her sister Virginia at her bedside. She was born Feb. 23, 1962, to James and Virginia Simpson of Marysville, Calif. She grew up in Piedmont, Calif., before the family moved to Marysville, where she completed high school and met her husband of 28 years, Hank Higham. They began their life together in Sacramento, Calif., living there for 15 years. They later moved to Cool, Calif., where they lived for 18 years.

Arleen worked for 16 years for the Probation Department, where she cooked all the meals each day. She was an old soul and will be remembered as strong minded and high spirited, with a great sense of humor and a vibrant zest for life. She loved nature, gold panning, gardening and cooking for family and friends.

Arleen is survived by her husband, Henry (Hank) Higham; her parents, James and Virginia Simpson; sisters, Ruth, Mary, Virginia (John) and Linda (Mike); brothers, Jimmy and Ronnie; sister-in-law, Anne Hicks (David); brother-in-law, Steve Funai; and many nieces and nephews. Arleen will be greatly missed by friends, family and those who knew her. May she now rest in God’s eternal peace.

All are invited to celebrate Arleen’s life on Saturday, May 11, at 10 a.m., at Cool Community Church, located at 863 Cave Valley Road in Cool, Calif. For more information please call 530-885-4385. In lieu of flowers the family requests that you make a charitable donation in Arleen’s memory to Paralyzed Veterans of America, Attn: Mark Slaughter, 801 18th St. NW, Washington, DC 2006-3517 (or online at pva.org).
