Lynda Lynne Zwetzig was born May 7, 1947, in Tilden, Nebraska, to Leo and Betty (James) Beckley.  She grew up in Basset, Nebraska and graduated from Bassett High School.  She moved to Keystone, South Dakota, where she met the love of her life, Carl Zwetzig.  They were married on January 3, 1966, in Hill City, South Dakota.  They moved to Hood River, Oregon for a few years and then to Aberdeen, South Dakota, where Lynda became a realtor.  She loved working in real estate and continued working as a realtor when they moved to McPherson, Kansas.  Lynda was employed at McPherson County Courthouse as the County Appraiser.  They moved to Norfolk, Nebraska for ten years and then moved to Yankton, South Dakota.  After Carl’s retirement they moved to Rapid City for a few years until returning to Yankton.

Lynda was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Yankton and the State Board of Realtors.  She was a hardworking, faithful woman who always kept busy and wasn’t afraid to try or fix anything.  She enjoyed fishing, working out at the gym, playing cards especially Texas Hold’em, and would often get lost in a good book.  She loved being in nature as well as being in control.  She was an avid gardener and made fantastic fresh salsa.  She had a passion for living, a passion for people and a passion for good friends.  She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, caretaker and friend (and was the best Easter Bunny, ever!)

Survivors include her husband of 57 years, Carl Zwetzig of Yankton, South Dakota; three children: Angela (Ken) Patton of McPherson, Kansas; Matt (Tonya) Zwetzig of Inman, Kansas; and Jon (Hillary) Zwetzig of Wichita, Kansas; six grandchildren: Justin, Chelsea, Michelle, Chelsea, Stephanie and Alexandra; three great grandchildren: Aria, Lyla and Mila; and two sisters, Lora (Richard) Lackaff of Bassett, Nebraska and Alicia.
