Arylis Ann Munsterteiger, of Ogilvie, passed away on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at her home. She was 88 years old.

Arylis was born May 25, 1932 to Vylan and Gladys (Keiser) Numsen near Alcester, South Dakota. When she was seven, they moved to a small farm near Brook Park where she went to elementary school. As a teenager she became active in 4-H, excelling in showing sheep and sewing. She graduated with honors as salutatorian from Pine City High School. Arylis went on to graduate from St. Cloud School of Cosmetology. When she was working in Isle, she met and married Ronald Munsterteiger, her husband of 52 years.

The Munsterteiger family moved onto a small farm near Ogilvie in 1955. Ron owned a truck route hauling milk from the farms to the creamery. In 1961, Ron and Arylis became partners, first in Ogilvie Shipping Assn. and then in Arlon Trucking; hauling livestock and freight. They did this for 30 years.
Outside the home and trucking business, Arylis was an active person and worked in several different businesses including Princeton Mailing, Mora Plastics, North Post, and was a relief rural mail carrier.

Arylis always stayed very active in church and started teaching Sunday school as a teenager, as soon as she was confirmed. She also took part in a Bible Study group for many years. At the age of 40, she began bowling and she sponsored three different teams over the years. They became league champions several times. She was a 4H leader for several years and the Kanabec Township clerk for 28 years.

When Dollars for Scholars Organization was created, Arylis was one of the Directors; and for 22 years she helped to promote scholarships for high school graduates. When the Ogilvie Shipping Assn. dissolved, they contributed their assets to Dollars for Scholars for any student wanting to study Agriculture.

She also participated with the Ogilvie Food Shelf by making toiletry packages for the food shelf and for the Backpack program at school. The food shelf hosted snack pack activities for students where she helped provide snacks for student events. She also started the library at the Ogilvie Food Shelf.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, a brother-in-law, a son-in-law, and two nieces.

Arylis is survived by seven children, Deborah Naujokas, Douglas, David (Karen), Denise Gries, Duane (Sheila), Deanne Glynn, Darcee (Greg) Adolf; 16 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren; sister Dawn Callander of McCook, Nebraska; as well as many other relatives and friends.


  1. Aw yet another wonderful lady has left this earth! Arylis was such a great friend to my mom Jean Ickler. Then again the whole Munsterteiger family welcome our family to Ogilvie in the 60’s when Dad and Mom bought the farm and we attended St. Kathryn’s (the first one). She was an amazing woman and I’m sure she has left many with wonderful memories! :) Thoughts and prayers to all the family! Love from Brainerd Deb (Ickler) and Terry Thorkelson and family.

  2. Please accept our condolences on your loss. Arylis was a ‘gem of a lady’, good neighbor and friend.
    Remembering fondly our visits with a cup of coffee or tea, Skipbo games and watching her granddaughter play volleyball. She and Henry could talk about anything. I will truly miss our visits on my way home from Two Harbors, had one planned for next month. Thoughts and prayers for the family. Carol (Henry)Kiehn, Deb-Steve Tischner & family and Cheryl Rand.

  3. My deepest condolences for your loss! There was a period when I spent countless hours in her home. I will remember her with kindness and love. One memory that I still think about is how she enjoyed having people around, even if we were not in the same room. I can still hear her saying “I love hearing you girls giggle up there” My thoughts and prayers are with you all! Love, Beth

  4. My deepest sympathies to all of you. What a wonderful lady who found the time to step up when called upon, always with a smile and a positive attitude. She will be greatly missed. Prayers of comfort, peace and reflection of great memories. Marie tenCate Kastenbauer

  5. Sending my condolences to the family. Your Mom was a great lady. She will be missed. I pray that God will comfort you at this time and give you strength.
    Hope you are all doing well.
