Arnetha Lee Sallie was born on June 15, 1924, and raised in Monongahela, PA. She was the loving daughter of the late Robert Lee and Lucinda Mitchell. Arnetha departed this life on September 7, 2020. She was preceded in death by her husband, James Sallie, Sr., brother, Sylvester Lee, and sister, Dorothy Hawley.
Arnetha resided in McKeesport, PA. She graduated from LaSalle University with an Associate’s degree and worked as a CPA. She was a member of Bethlehem Baptist Church until 2004, at which time she relocated to Las Vegas to live with her daughter after her husband James passed away. She loved sitting for hours reading her books and cards that her children and grandchildren sent to her. Another one of her joys was celebrating holidays, birthdays and just being with her family. She had been trying to get back home ever since she left McKeesport. Now we can say that sixteen years later she “Finally Made it Home.”
Arnetha is survived by her daughter Carol Lawrence of Las Vegas; three sons, James (Sandra) Sallie, Jr., Ronald (Patricia) Sallie of Pittsburgh, Reginald (Cheryl) Sallie of TN; 12 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, numerous great-great-grandchildren; two sisters; Audrey Reeves of GA, Vivian Street of Washington State; a host of nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
“Thank You, Jesus” which was her favorite saying. She will truly be missed.
