Delores Violet Ellwein Bezug was born May 16, 1930, Freeman, SD, to Herbert and Hulda (Pfeiffer) Ellwein. She was baptized May 29, 1930, and confirmed May 28, 1944. Delores attended Knodel School/St. Paul Lutheran Parochial School, Freeman and attended high school or for 1 year.
She married Delmar R. Bezug April 10, 1950. They were blessed with three children, Sandra, Sally, and Jeremy. Delmar passed Oct 2, 1991.
She attended Immanuel Lutheran Church in Menno and rarely missed a Sunday. Her faith was very important to her. If she couldn’t attend, she listened to Christian programs on the radio or watched programs on television. She enjoyed and played many hymns on the organ which we’re sure the neighborhood enjoyed, as well.
Delores enjoyed her flowers and gardening. She took pride in the canning she did, especially her pickles. Her bunker was the talk of the town as she would fill them with veggie plants and eventually flowers. She loved to bake bread, homemade noodles, kuchen and cookies. Most of the time they were gifts given to good Samaritans that helped her out. She loved to crochet and especially embroider. She saturated her friends and family with her treasures. Many of us here today may have some memories to remember her by.
Delores wasn’t much of a socialite, but she kept in touch with phone calls and lots of card sending. Even though, she isolated herself, it was important that she wasn’t forgotten. Her family and friends were important to her and talked a lot about her grandkids and those precious “Tootsies” (great grandchildren) She was able to attend most holiday events up to the last year, and the highlights were the graduations and weddings of her grandchildren. Since then, her legs weakened and had a difficult time getting around.
She is survived by her 3 children, Sandra Bezug of Yankton SD, Sally Sayler (Gary) of Coleridge, NE and Jeremy Bezug (Dara) of Harrisburg, SD; 5 grandchildren, Matthew Sayler (Jane) of Hartington, NE, Dana Osborne (Wylie) of Omaha NE, Jonathan Sayler (Paige) of Omaha, NE, Jacob Bezug of Vermillion SD, Karlee Bezug of Sioux Falls, SD; 9 great grandchildren: Berkeley, Cohen, and Beckett Osborne; Caroline, Lincoln, and Thomas Sayler; Tyree, Brooks, and soon to be born great granddaughter Sayler; brother and sister in law Delbert and Darline Bezug, sister in law Nadine Junke, and many nieces, nephews and close friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Delmar; parents Herbert and Hulda Ellwein; brother Orville Ellwein and wife, Darlene; mother and father in law, Rudy and Hildegard Bezug; brothers and sisters in law Archie and Darlene Juhnke, Clinton Juhnke, Maurice and Castene Bezug.
