Marjorie R. Trubic, 98, of Warren, PA, died on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at Warren Manor.

She was born on September 24, 1921 in Dunkirk, NY, and was the daughter of the late August W. and Minnie E. Knubbe Raths. On October 5, 1941 she married Richard D. Arnold, who died on August 6, 1962. On January 4, 1969 she married George Trubic, who died on March 29, 2003.

Marjorie was a 1939 graduate of Dunkirk (NY) High School. She worked for Doctors Jones and Snyder of Warren as a dental assistant for 8 years. She also worked in the psychiatric unit at Warren General Hospital for several years followed by a multi-year stint in the local Boy Scout office. She was a member of First United Methodist Church of Warren for over 65 years serving many years as president of the Allen Class. Mrs. Trubic’s whole life was spent as a voracious reader of fiction.

Marge often like to tell “war stories” of the excitement when she and her husband, Richard D. Arnold, spent most of 1943 and 1944 living in Oak Ridge, Tennessee while Richard worked on the Atomic Bomb. Life was very secretive and often led to some very funny situations almost like “I Love Lucy” episodes that they couldn’t tell their friends until years later. Richard was a civilian member of the U.S. Army armed services, but they lived on base in very stark conditions with no telephone of their own. The Army brought each of the living quarters what passed as a Christmas tree with very few needles on it.

Marjorie is survived by her son – Douglas S. Arnold of Warren, PA; 2 step-children – Diane Trubic of Erie, PA and Karen Sides and husband, Butch, of Middletown, PA, 5 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great grandson; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and husbands, she was preceded in death by her son, Robert E. Arnold, who died on May 1, 2018 after a long illness; 3 sisters – Minnie Silver, Helen Kinney, Edna Fitzer, an infant sister, Mabel, and 1 Brother – Walter Raths – all of Dunkirk, New York.
