Ada Austin


Tue, Nov 6th, 2012
Posted in Harmony Obituaries

Ada Austin of Harmony, was born in Cresco, IA on December 7, 1938 and passed 4 November, 2012. Survived by the love of her life, her husband James, sons Scott Austin, (Donna), Mike Austin, (Denise), daughters, Tori Kenney (Brian) and Konya Bloomquist, (Joseph); her beloved grandchildren, Michelle Austin-Willard, (Jason), Connie Austin (fiancé Nick Clark), Jarod Austin, Janai Austin (fiancé Justin Buchanan), Brianna Kenney, Jordan Bloomquist, Finnegan Kenney and Aidan Bloomquist. Danette Kimball, Dustin (Lisa) Kimball, “DJ” Smith; and five great grandchildren, Genevieve, Abbie, Khloe, Jacob and Avery.

Ada was the eldest daughter of Connie and Ruth (Hahn) Turnmire. Ada also leaves behind a successful business and a honey-do list that could make the entire Armed Forces weep.

Ada was predeceased by her parents, sister Alvera; step-brothers Royal, Ronald and Curt Heim; Mother-in-law Allene (Terbeest) and Father-in-law Axel Bendickson; nephews BillyJoe Erickson and Charlie Foster; grandson Mathew Kenney, also parted before her were myriad family pets, some favorite pasture lovelies (goats) and an Arabian horse named Tarquin. What these critters lacked in intellect they made up with genuine adoration and devotion.

Near the end of her life, Ada had brain surgery for a glioblastoma tumor, a very aggressive cancer. When Ada twisted her doctor’s arm for a guess of approximately how much time she’d get if she took treatments he replied, “a few months.” She touched his hand and blustered “What the hell!” and looked to the family to support her decision not to take any treatments. As if she thought we would do anything else.

In August, Ada and Jim celebrated 50 years together as husband and wife; a true team. Ada would say that this was their greatest accomplishment.

Bedside vigil was fueled by lively conversation, and very little television. An occasional Viking football game, much to her chagrin, and her faithful k-9 companion “Chester T.Yorkshire”.

To say the least, Ada was a challenging and exciting woman. Throughout her life she tried to make “no woman has held that job before” an antiquated phrase. She enjoyed breaking gender barriers in her jobs and didn’t mind doing traditional work as well; (not in any particular order) Deputy Sherriff and Dispatch, a novice accordion player, waitress, bartender, ambulance (EMT) crew, semi-truck driver, pub & grill owne .....
