Lynnett Jean Rotert

Heaven has gained another angel. Lynnett Jean Rotert, age 58, of Spearfish, South Dakota, passed away on August 2, 2023. She was born on February 11, 1965, in Fontana, California, to Daryl Arneson and Barbara Arneson (Smothers), moving to South Dakota with her family in 1980. Lynnett was a kind and selfless person who always put her family and friends ahead of herself. Her kind and giving personality will not be forgotten, as its impact reached so many. Her love was a verb.

Lynnett is survived by her loving husband, Patrick Rotert, and her children Austin “Bea” Rotert, Nathan (Chloe) Rotert, Brendan (Brooke) Rotert, and Erin Rotert (Logan Goeders), daughter in law Savahannah Rotert, sister Terri (Michael) Calvert, nephews Christopher (Meghan) and Daryl Calvert, niece Barbara Calvert, five grandchildren Lydia, Gwendolyn, Mae, Bo and Finnigan and many other dear relatives. She was preceded in death by her father, Daryl Arneson, and her mother, Barbara Arneson (Smothers).

Lynnett graduated from Chester High School in Chester, South Dakota, and later pursued higher education at South Dakota State University, graduating with a BS in Biology. She had a successful career spanning several decades as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist with Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff, NE and Bone Density Technologist with Monument Health/Queen City Clinic in Spearfish, SD. The latter part of her career she worked part-time in order to be present in her children’s lives, wanting to drop them off and pick them up from school and be available for all of their needs.

Lynnett was an active member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Spearfish, where she worshipped. She was a quietly devout Christian, her faith carrying her through to the end. Over the years she assisted with Julefest and served as a confirmation class instructor.

Her greatest joy was spending time with her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed sewing and making quilts for her children and grandchildren, an interest imparted to her by her mother. She was a CASA volunteer and started both the Spearfish Teammates and Spearfish Police Auxiliary programs. She actively volunteered in Spearfish youth and school sports programs, becoming a fixture for over two decades in Spearfish athletics.

A memorial service to celebrate Lynnett’s life will be held on Monday, August 14th, at 10:30 a.m. at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Spearfish. Her final resting place will be with her parents at Hills of Rest in Sioux Falls, SD.

Please join us in remembering Lynnett and celebrating her life. She had a passion for people and making them feel seen. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
