Becky Jandl

Becky Jean (Lonning) Jandl, 56, our much loved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, at the Sanford Medical Center in Sioux Falls.

Becky Jean Lonning, only daughter of Samuel and Vashti (Piechouski) Lonning, was born January 17, 1957, in Fergus Falls, MN. She grew up in Fergus Falls and various places in Wisconsin, before moving to Sioux Falls when in high school. She graduated from Lincoln High School in 1976 and attended the University of South Dakota for two years.

Becky and David Jandl were married on June 16, 1990, under a tree on their farm outside of Worthing, SD. Becky worked in many different jobs in her life, mostly in service to others. Most recently, she was a co-owner of Bizzy Bees Concessions and Catering, and worked in food service at the Lennox Middle School.

In October 1980, Becky welcomed her first daughter, Jacqueline Jean, to the world, followed in December 1982 with green-eyed, spunky, Tracy Kae. In July 1990, daughter Jaimee Lyn joined the family with a head full of curls. Finally, in April 1998, Brady Samdon, their only son, finally gave Dave a child on "his side". Her family grew with even more love when she became "Becky Grandma" to Kaden James and Brenner Charles.

Becky spent nearly her entire life serving others - mostly through food! Becky's amazing meals will be sorely missed. She was a proud shareholder of the Green Bay Packers, and wore the green and gold with pride nearly every day. She was her children's biggest cheerleader, attending all their activities, serving in the PTA, and cheering from the crowd at golf meets, softball and baseball games, band and vocal concerts, debate and quiz bowl tournaments, and high school, college, and graduate school graduations. Becky had a tremendous love for animals, especially Holstein calves, and all kinds of dogs.

Grateful for having shared her life are her husband of nearly 23 years, David Jandl, Worthing, SD; daughters, Jacquie Lonning and her fiancé Dan Letsche, Saint Paul, MN; Jim and Tracy (Lonning) Gerdes, Hurley, SD; and Jaimee Jandl, Sioux Falls, SD; son, Brady Jandl, Worthing; grandsons Kaden and Brenner Gerdes; and many other relatives and friends.

Becky was preceded in death by her parents Samuel & Vashti Lonning.

The family requests that donations be directed to the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society or the Lennox Sundstrom FFA.

The family will be present from 5:00-7:30pm on Friday, May 24, at Miller West Funeral Chapel. A memorial service will be held at 10:00am on Saturday, May 25, at Hilltop United Methodist Church in Sioux Falls.
