Arlyce Twistol Memorial Scholarship

The 2023 Arlyce & Rodney Twistol Scholarship was Presented to Natalie Novak by Raelynn Abernathy, Renae Carlson, and Renelle Fenno.

The Thief River Falls Education Foundation has announced the establishment of the Arlyce Twistol Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded to a Lincoln High School graduate who is pursuing a career in Education. 

Establishing this scholarship are Arlyce’s children Renae Carlson, Raelynn Abernathey, Randy Twistol, and Renelle Fenno from the proceeds of donations given in Arlyce’s memory.

Arlyce graduated from Lincoln High School in Thief River Falls with the Class of 1952.  Arlyce married Rodney Twistol and they have 4 children residing in Thief River Falls.

Arlyce worked for 28 years at Franklin Middle School as a paraprofessional.  She loved her students and enjoyed the faculty and staff.

Arlyce was a warm, loving, kind, caring woman whose home was always open; she was a second mom and grandmother to many.  She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother.  Arlyce loved the Lord and never faltered in her faith, even throughout her battle with cancer.

Arlyce loved traveling, especially her yearly trip to New York City, where she enjoyed shopping and going to Broadway musicals; going to Norsk Hostfest, cruises in the Caribbean, and to Branson.  She also enjoyed taking pictures, making photo albums, and spending time with family, grandchildren and friends.

Quote from a loving family friend, Tommy Kenville, ” Hey TRF Prowlers!!! A sad time for the Twistol family and so many of us were personally touched by Mrs. Twisty in the LHS/FMS office ( I know she helped me quite a bit). Let’s continue to give to a scholarship in her name with the TRF Education Foundation. Let’s keep  her legacy going strong at LHS.”
