Arvilla Hain, 91, of Rochester, died Tuesday morning, January 7, 2020 at Samaritan Bethany on 8th in Rochester. Arvilla was born November 12, 1928 in Haverhill Township, Olmsted County to Arthur and Laura (Milbrandt) Kurth. She and Donald Hain were married on August 31, 1948. They made their home in Decatur, Ill until returning to Rochester in 1961. Arvilla worked for Kahler Hotel for several years. She then worked for Rochester Methodist Hospital in the Laundry Department until her retirement.
Arvilla and Donald enjoyed traveling across the country to visit her siblings and their families. They were known for just getting in the car and taking off on their adventures. She was a good traveler, also enjoying trips with her family following Don's death in 1999. Arvilla belonged to Grace Lutheran Church in Rochester. Serving others was important to Arvilla. Volunteering for The Red Cross, serving meals at her church and cooking for her family were some of the ways in which she served.

Dr. James Murray of Boulder City, NV. In addition to her husband Donald, Arvilla was preceded in death by three sisters, Dolores, Marie and Janet.

A proverb that best reflects how blessed we were to have aunt Arvilla in our lives: "Say not in grief she is no more, but live in thankfulness that she was."

I was blessed to know Aunt Arvilla. She was full of spirit, joy, love and always had a smile and a twinkle in her eyes. I will miss her bubbly self but I know where she is and all I have to do is to look up, have a memory or two and smile. For Sandy and Linda and all - you know this - for you are blessed as well. Much love and warm hugs, Rosie
