Arlyne was born on May 14, 1934 in Flasher, ND to William and Myrtle Breuer. She graduated from Mandan High School in 1952 and from Bismarck Hospital School of Nursing as a Registered Nurse in 1955. Arlyne married her high school sweetheart, James Rothschiller on September 19, 1955. They made their home in Riverside, California, where Arlyne joined a physician in private practice before joining the staff at the University of Southern California Student Health Center in Riverside. In 1969, Arlyne, Jim and their sons, James and David returned to ND, residing in Rugby. Arlyne was employed by the Johnson Clinic as the Director of Nursing Service for 17 years. She continued her love of nursing and teaching as a long-term substitute teacher for the Health Career class at Rugby High School and later as an instructor for the LPN nursing program at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Rugby. Arlyne truly enjoyed her calling as a nurse and took pride in white uniforms and the care her and her fellow nurses provided. Arlyne “retired” in 1996 and joined Jim in their retirement business, Heritage Restoration & Antiques by JR.
Arlyne enjoyed her home and loved entertaining family and friends. She often said the fall hunting season was her favorite time of the year when her sons, grandchildren and their many friends came home to hunt. Other passions and loves included trips to the Twin Cities to watch her grandchildren participate in their activities, time at their Metigoshe cabin (and the beautiful sunsets), trips to Norway, Germany and Mexico and 13 years of volunteering at the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation. Arlyne loved her birds, mentoring youth, gardening, flowers and was passionate about her table settings!
Arlyne loved her faith and found comfort as an active member of First Lutheran Church serving on church council, pastoral call committees, WELCA, teaching Sunday School and singing in choir with her two sons. She also served as a member of the Rugby Chamber of Commerce, the Heart of America HMO Board of Directors, and a long-time volunteer in the Good Samaritan Hospital Gift Shop.
In 2017, Arlyne and Jim moved to McKenna Crossing in Prior Lake, MN to be closer to their family. Arlyne found enjoyment maintaining flowers for the property, growing vegetables in their raised garden and volunteering at Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church.
Arlyne is preceded in death by her twin daughters, Deborah Raye & Denise Faye; parents; mother & father-in-law, and several wonderful brothers & sisters-in-law. She is survived by husband, Jim; sons, Jim (Sandy), Victoria, MN & Dave (Jody), Eagan MN; grandchildren, Derek (Megan) Rothschiller, Lauren (Tony) Reed, Jordan (Victoria) Rothschiller, Lindsay (Logan) Rudstrom, and Brock (Kirsten) Rothschiller; great granddaughters, Scout & Blair Rothschiller and great grandson, Ryder Reed; sister, Marion Helbling; brother, Ed (Dalas) Breuer; sister-in-law, Rita White; along with many nieces & nephews.

Dear Jim and family. My heart goes out to you all. I don’t know how many years I did Arlene’s hair or cut Jim’s in Rugby, ND. They are both the best people anyone could possibly be. Arlene was always so kind and soft spoken . A true Christian lady❤️. And as for Jim, he knows what it meant to me when he found my husband at the accident site, called me, and sat with him until the ambulance came. God’s blessings on you all at this difficult time . A big warm hug to you, Jim❤️. Love, Mitzi HAger

Deepest sympathies to Jim and the entire Rothschiller family. Arlyne was an absolute treasure and someone I was honored to call my “second mother”. She was the most kind and caring person I had the pleasure to know. I will look forward to when I get to heaven to get my tour of my eternal home from Arlyne. She will be so very much missed. Love and deepest sympathies, Larry and Beth Krogstad

ND Veterans Cemetery a special resting place.
Arlyne was a beautiful, faithfilled lady. I was so privileged to know her. She loved to volunteer at the front desk at SOLLC and I enjoyed “showing her the ropes” ( so to speak ).
She loved being entertained by my canine buddy, Glady.
Arlyne was so pleasant and always brought out the best in people with her smile and humor. I thank God for her. She will be missed. May she rest in God’s heavenly home.
Our deepest sympathy to Jim, Jim and Sandy, Dave and Jody, and the whole family❤️.
We are so thankful for the journey Arlyne and Jim took to Norway in 2007. That became the start of a lifelong relationship between our families, and so many visit. Arlyne and Jim and the rest of the family has opened their homes for us so many times. Arlyne was such a warm, caring and lovely person, and we have so many good memories. We will miss Arlyne❤️ but she will always be in our hearts❤️.
Love from Geir, Heidi, Erik Jakob and Anna Dorthea.
