Arlis continued to live on the farm until after Robert’s death. She then lived with her daughter, Sally, in Sioux Falls for three years and then seven years at Countryside in Mitchell.

She will be remembered as a fantastic cook, and a talented seamstress. Arlis always had a smile on her face and was a very kind person.
