Armaline was born February 28, 1916 in Marshall, MN to Zephire “Harry” and Irene (Ritchie) Bourgeois. She married Harold Rothfork on September 30, 1935 in Marshall. They moved to St. Joseph in 1954 where they owned and operated St. Joseph Feed Mill and have been involved in the turkey industry since 1964. They sold the St. Joseph Feed Mill in 1965 to concentrate on the turkey business, which was fed out of the Melrose Feed Mill. She remained a shareholder of Melrose Feed Mill and the turkey grow-out operation after Harold's passing in 1992.
Armaline is survived by her 7 children Mary Rothfork of St. Joseph, Judy Rothfork of Anoka, Bill (Alice) Rothfork of Melrose, Suzanne (Adolf) Wilhelm of Richmond, Michaeline (Dave) Hollander of Cold Spring, Pete (Patti) Rothfork of Grey Eagle, and Mary Ann (Kurt) Larios of Wyoming, MN, her 12 grandchildren: Pat, Cheryl, Mark and Paul Rothfork, Jesse Rothfork, Chris, Shane and Ryan Wilhelm, Heather Wegner and Rory Hollander, and Jessica Linn and Grant Larios and her 7 great grandchildren.
Preceding her in death are her parents, husband, sons Jim and Tom, brother Donald Bourgeois and sister Eleanor Nemecek.
The Rothfork family especially wants to thank the people at the St. Cloud Hospital Hospice who did an excellent job keeping Armaline comfortable her last few weeks.
Memorials are preferred to Catholic Charities.
