Erika Marlene Hedberg
Erika Marlene “Boots” Hedberg, 82, passed away May 12, 2013 at Riverview Estates, Marquette, Kansas.
She was born March 25, 1931 in Marquette and was the only girl of William and Gladys (Gomer) Jost’s six children. Boots was baptized as an adult at Elim Lutheran Church March 26, 1961. She was a faithful member of Elim and held many positions of leadership in the church over the years. Boots’ faith in God was very important to her and she knew this world was not her final home, but that she was only passing through to that “mansion over the hilltop”. Boots graduated from Marquette High School in May 1949. She was united in marriage to Arnold V. Hedberg at the Covenant Church in Marquette on June 9, 1949. Vic cared and provided for Boots from that day forward in the best way he knew how. He was especially attentive to her in the last few years of her life and was concerned about her well-being until the very end.
First and foremost, Boots was a farm wife to Vic, proud mother of five children, and known as “Grandma Boots” to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In addition, Boots worked at the Lindsborg Sale Barn, Home Mercantile, was a bus driver for USD 400, and a rural mail carrier for the McPherson Post Office. As a partner to Vic, she was head dispatcher for Hedberg & Sons Trucking Company and worked in all capacities on the family farm and cattle business.
Boots loved horseback riding and was especially proud to be a part of the Smoky Valley Saddle Club Drill Team for a few years. She loved fishing off the riverbank of the Smoky Hill or at farm ponds and would often take her grandchildren along. She was also very happy sitting on her front porch with a cup of coffee in her hand, enjoying some good conversation and watching the world go by. A lot of problems were solved sitting on that front porch. Boots loved birds in general, but especially the Purple Martins. She spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to get them not only in her bird house, but to get them to stay.
When Boots and Vic were raising their family, they enjoyed camping and boating and their family of seven took many trips in a small camper perched on the back of their pickup truck. She found solitude in the ripple of the water and the crackling of a campfire combined with some good old guitar picking and singing. She loved to sing, although she never considered herself good at it and was particularly proud of singing tenor in a double quartet of four men and four women directed by Uarda Thompson. In Boots’ later years, she enjoyed crossword puzzles and watching the eagles at Kanopolis Lake with her best friend Ebba Nelson.
Boots was intrigued by American Indians and their philosophy on life regarding living off the land and trusting in God who would provide. Boots’ happiness was not measured by the “things of this world” but in the simplicity of life she found true happiness, never wanting for more than she had or complaining about things she couldn’t change.
Boots was preceded in death by her parents and siblings: Jim, Warren, and Roy Jost.
Boots is survived by her husband Vic of Marquette, children and spouses: Ken Hedberg, Jackie (Craig) Larson, Tim (Rhonda) Hedberg, Quint (Beth) Hedberg, Matt (Diane) Hedberg, 13 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, and two brothers Dale Jost of Syracuse and Gary Jost of Pawnee Rock, many nieces, nephews, extended family and close friends.
A Celebration of Life was held Thursday, May 16, at Elim Lutheran Church, Marquette. Private family burial was held at Marquette Lutheran Cemetery. There will be no visitation.
Memorials may be designated to Elim Lutheran Church or Riverview Estates in care of Christians Funeral Home 103 N. Washington PO Box 386 Lindsborg, KS 67456.

Marvin Bender passed away at his home in Holly, Colo. on May 12, 2013. He was 73….or in leap years, 18.

Marvin Bender was born to Reiny and Frieda (Meidinger) Bender in Aberdeen, S.D. on February 29, 1940. The oldest of 5, he grew up a farmer in northeastern South Dakota. After several moves, his parents settled on a farm east of Britton. He went to school in Britton and then onto a diesel program in Fargo, N.D., while continuing to help on the farm. In his late teens, he joined the Army National Guard with several buddies, and served for seven years in the Howitzer Service Battery motor pool.
Marvin married Valera K. Behnke of Britton on December 28, 1963. Early in their marriage they lived in Britton and in 1965 purchased the Behnke homestead, 4 miles east of Britton and began farming. Along with their acreage, they also raised stock cows, feeder hogs and various other types of livestock - along with three children.
He was very much an entrepreneur but always a farmer at heart. He and Val owned several other businesses, including Britton Livestock Auction, Bender Trucking and a custom harvesting business, harvesting wheat with John Deere combines from Texas to SD each summer. He also partnered and farmed with several of his family members for a number of years. While in Britton, Marvin was a member of the First Lutheran Church.
After the children had graduated from High School, he and Val moved to Syracuse, Kan. in 1987 and shortly thereafter to Holly, where he continued his trucking business up until 2012. He and Val also owned and operated several other businesses in Holly.
Marvin enjoyed fast cars younger in life, and then on the farm, built and repaired many things in his shop. He was always chasing the next dollar - but loved nothing more than farming – and his faithful four-legged companion, Kalli whom was always by his side.
He is survived by his three children, Shawnlee (Donnie) Hammit of Holly; Bradley (Jane) Bender of Glendale, Ariz.; Candie (Randy) Beck of Hecla, S.D.; 10 grandchildren, Sara Leigh, Philip Muth, Ryan (Kim) Hammit, Casey (Patricia) Hammit, Dylan Hammit, Zach and Gage Bender, Katie, Kaylin, and Anthony Beck; five great-grandchildren, Maleia Buer, Maddix Delbrune, Kallie Mackner, Millie Leigh, Mackenzie Hammit, and 3 great-grandchildren to join the family this summer; two sisters, Diane (Richard) Rath of Arvada, Colo. and LaVonne (Roger) Furman of Britton; two brothers, Oscar (Donna) Bender of Parker, Ariz. and Arlie (Lorene) Bender of Britton; many other relatives and a host of friends.
