Obituary Notices and Memorials


ROESINGER, Helen 'Arlene' Born Sept. 26, 1928, in Detroit, Mich. Passed away peacefully on May 18, 2010, in Lancaster, Calif., after a courageous battle with cancer. Arlene lived in the Antelope Valley for 46 years. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Survived by daughters Lynn Schettig (Jim) of Stallion Springs, Donna King of Lancaster; grandchildren Kevin Schettig (Julie) of Sherman Oaks, Amy King of Visalia, Katie Schettig of Washington DC, and Jill King of Lancaster; great-grandchildren Jayden White and Stella Schettig (baby on the way); sister Anna Olsen (Bill) of Vancouver, Wash.; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. In 1950, Arlene moved to the San Fernando Valley where she and her husband Jack lived and began their family. In 1963, they relocated their family to Lancaster to design and build Rancho Sierra Golf Course along with her sister Doris Fogo and husband Sam. They called it their 'Oasis in the Desert,' and they considered it their labor of love, as it was built almost exclusively by family and friends. After selling the golf course in 1981, Arlene worked as a manager at the Credit Bureau of Lancaster and Palmdale for many years until her retirement. For the past year, she lived in Stallion Springs, a setting where she enjoyed watching the birds and wildlife. She devoted her life to the things she loved most ~ her family, her friends of all ages, genealogy, and painting and sculpting beautiful works of art. Her sense of humor will be truly missed by all who knew her. A celebration of her life will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, July 10, 2010, a the home of Lynn and Jim Schettig.
