How Did We Do?

Winona,
Delbert J.(Jim) Bedtka, 88, of Winona died Sunday, November 12, 2017 at Lake Winona Manor. He was born February 6, 1929 in Quincy Township, Olmsted County, Minnesota to Richard and Winnie (Ihrke) Bedtka. Delbert and Arlene Timm were married September 3, 1951 and they farmed near Beaver, Minnesota. Following the Beaver flood, Delbert and Arlene moved to Winona in 1956. He worked for the Cenex Fertilizer Plant before going to work for Peerless Chain, until his retirement.
In his retirement, Delbert found his favorite part time job, making deliveries for O'Reilly Auto Parts. He never got over his love of farming and spent many days helping his son-in-law, Glen, driving tractor on the farm in Stockton Valley. His granddaughters were blessed by the many hours he spent with them as they were growing up.
Survivors include his wife Arlene; three daughters, Sandra (Paul) Simonsgaard of Glendale, AZ; Linda Bedtka and Kendra (Glen) Albrecht both of Winona; five granddaughters; Amber (Matt) Lynch, Casey (Brady) Haas, Devon Jackels, Katie (Jeremy) Sell, and Grace Albrecht; two great-grandchildren, River Lynch and Harrison Haas; and a sister, Helen Kahn of Wabasha. He was preceded in death by brothers, Walt, Wes, Jack, Bill and a sister Minnie.
Services to celebrate Delbert's life will be 5:30 p.m. Thursday, December 28, 2017 at Hoff Celebration of Life Center. Friends may call from 4:00 p.m until time of services. Please share a memory of Delbert at his online guestbook and view his video tribute, when it becomes available at www.hofffuneral.
