Obituary for Joni Kay Bohning

Joni Kay Bohning, age 62, was born on January 20, 1954 in Spencer, Iowa the daughter of Clarence and Joy (Hedges) Askeland. Joni graduated from high school and attended beauty school. Joni married Bruce Bohning in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. They made their home in Worthington where Joni filled their home with beautiful antiques and red wing crockery. Gardening, for Joni and Bruce, was truly a team effort. Joni would plant her vegetables each spring, Bruce would tend the garden throughout the summer and Joni spent countless hours preserving their harvest. She enjoyed trying new recipes that she discovered and shared on Facebook. Joni was a loyal Minnesota Vikings fan and was looking forward to a fresh season of watching weekend football games. Every January she organized a Super Bowl pool for friends and co-workers to participate in. She enjoyed her job as a bib tie operator at Bedford Industries, recently receiving twenty year anniversary recognition. Joni was kind and generous helping family members in time of need. She adored her nieces and nephews and remained active in their lives watching and supporting them, from baptism, through school activities, marriages and as they began families of their own. Joni was a loving devoted wife to Bruce, celebrating almost thirty two years of marriage. Those who know Joni certainly know her affection with pets over the years. Their current dog, Chile, held a special place in her heart. Joni died on Friday, September 9, 2016 at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, S.D.
