Following a long struggle with Alzheimer’s, Arne passed away at home with family. He is survived by his wife Mary Thuresson of Harrington and four stepsons: Aaron Polite and wife Tommie; Eli Polite and wife Andrea; Joseph Polite and wife Lana Rosetta and Abraham Polite. There are 12 step grandchildren and five step great grandchildren. In addition, three children from a previous marriage: Leah (Thuresson) Grabowski and husband Dave; Dana (Thuresson) and wife Karen; Eric Thuresson (deceased) and surviving wife Lisa, along with eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Arne attended University of Delaware and New Mexico State University earning his BS and Masters in Art with a Music minor. He also attended schools for training in precious metals and woodwork/carving to expand his skills. Making product designs and models led to making to-scale architectural models. He moved on to teach elementary thru grade twelve teaching Art, Math and English. In early 1990 he retired from the Christina School District with 30 plus years of teaching. Arne loved dancing and had taught ball room dancing early in his life. Most of his beautiful art work was lost in a fire later in life. While a member of the Odd Fellows in Felton, he especially enjoyed being Santa at Christmas. After joining The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Arne: worked with Boy Scouts; taught early morning Seminary; played piano and organ; sang in and led the choir; held leadership positions and was a Temple Worker in Washington D.C. In order to honor the family's wishes, all services for Arne will be private.
