Arbadell was born April 11, 1938 in Eden Lake Township to Leo & Lillian (Haag) Meyer. She married Arnold Blomker on June 20, 1957 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Eden Valley. Arbie and Arnie ran the family farm for many years. Later, they owned and operated the Chalet Café in town. She was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday School for many years. Family was important to her and there was always an open place at her table, and a candy dish on the counter. She and Arnie loved going for drives and going out to eat. She was very loving, loyal, and strong, and her faith was very important to her.
