Jack W. Beddow

Jack Beddow, age 66, of Brownsdale, Minn. died on Friday, July 5, 2013 surrounded by the love of his family.

Jack Wayne Beddow was born April 1, 1947 in Forest City, Iowa to Donald and Charlotte (Cooke) Beddow. In 1959 he moved with his parents to a farm north of Chester, IA. Farming was he and his dad’s greatest love. He attended school in LeRoy, Minn. and married Jolene Noe on December 29, 1963 in Lime Springs, IA. They have two children Jeffrey Scott and Jill Annette. They farmed in the Lime Springs and Chester area until 1986 when they both started work at Hormel Foods, retiring in 2011.

Jack was everyone’s “fixer.” There was nothing he couldn’t figure out a way to make work.

Jack enjoyed many trips out west with Jeff and Jill, and fishing on Lake of the Woods. When the grandchildren (six of them) came along, he had great joy in snowmobiling, biking and sleep overs at Grandpa and Grandma’s. He loved the hours spent with them. He and Jolene’s greatest enjoyment was snowmobiling “Up North” - Gunflint Trail - Aspen Lodge. Mark and his crew made it a great home away from home - The Trail Center, Hungry Jack Lodge, miles and miles of trails.

He was preceded in death by his father Don Beddow and mother-in-law Fern Noe. He will be sorely missed by his wife Jolene of Brownsdale, Minn., his son Jeff (Judi) Beddow and their children Justin, Josh, Jarod and Janell of Dodge Center, Minn. and his daughter Jill (Lee) Gooder and their children Shelley and Zach. His mother Charlotte Beddow of Chester, father-in-law Harold Noe Sr. of Spring Valley, Minn. brothers; Tom Beddow of Chester and Jim (Carmen) Beddow of Stewartville, Minn., his sister Deb Driscall of Kasson, Minn. He is also survived by his in-laws Harold (Carrie) Noe Jr. of Cresco, Iowa, Bert (Joy) Noe of Rochester, Minn., Marolyn (Merlynn) Hetrick of Texas, Carolyn Eddy of Wyoming, Judy (David) Jacobson of Cresco, IA and Jan (Bob) Behnken of South St. Paul and many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews that always thought of him as their “Hero.”

Funeral services were held on Tuesday July 9, 2013 at the Brownsdale United Methodist Church with the Rev. Sharon Goetzinger officiating.

The family extends its sincerest Thanks to the Mayo Doctors and their wonderful Care and the Austin Mayo Hospice.
