James Emil Rothschadl was born on January 24, 1941 to Emil and Leantine (Schneider) Rothschadl in rural Tyndall, South Dakota. He attended Nedved rural school and graduated from Tyndall High School in 1959. On June 28, 1969, James was united in marriage to Mae Pavlish at St. Leo’s Catholic Church in Tyndall. For many years, James farmed with his father and worked at Soukup Implement until 1971. He then worked with the SD Department of Highways until 1993 at which time he and his wife purchased the Bottle Shop in Tyndall. They later retired in 2006.
James was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He loved attending the “boys” activities and watching the Minnesota Vikings. He also enjoyed the family trips and visiting with his friends in the morning at the Bottle Shop. James would also spend his time caring for his garden and feeding his “livestock,” the many birds and squirrels. He was active in St. Leo’s Catholic in Tyndall, and served as a Eucharistic Minister and member of the Knights of Columbus for many years.
James passed away on Sunday, November 1, 2015 at Avera Heart Hospital in Sioux Falls after a long, courageous battle of heart disease. He had attained the age of 74 years, 9 months, and 8 days.
Thankful for having shared his life are wife of 46 years, Mae Rothschadl of Tyndall; son Tim Teabo of Sioux Falls; daughter Paulette (Shannon) Peters of Tyndall; grandsons: Brady Rothschadl and girlfriend Katelynn Fischer of Rapid City and Connor Peters of Tyndall; sister Arlene Kronaizl of Tyndall; brothers: Ken (Marilyn) Rothschadl of Tyndall and John (Donna) Rothschadl of Yankton; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, parents-in-law Adolph and Mamie Pavlish, brother-in-law Ray and Carol (Schneider) Pavlish, and brother-in-law Tom Kronaizl.
