Worthington, MN

Linda Kay Bents was born on August 25, 1947, to Eldon and Arline Lindaman. At age 4, she was adopted by Wilbur Omanson. Linda attended school in Sioux Falls, SD and later graduated from St. Louis, MO in 1967. On May 24, 1969 she married George Lester Bents in Rushmore, MN, where they resided until moving to Worthington in 1971. In 1976 they moved to Bakersfield, CA, where they resided until 1979, when they returned to Worthington. Linda took great delight in her children and grandchildren. She was a proud supporter of the Nobles County 4-H program and enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s activities. Racing was one of the many summer time activities she enjoyed. For the past 20 years, you could find her sitting in the stands of the local race tracks watching her son, son-in-law, and grandson race. Linda also enjoyed relaxing with her family at the lake. She enjoyed being on the pontoon and listening to the kids laugh, play, and swim. Linda passed away peacefully after a long and courageous battle with cancer, surrounded by her family, on Tuesday, November 22, 2016, at the age of 69.
Linda is survived by her husband of 47 years, George; her children, Steve (Barb) of Rushmore, MN, Jerry (Tracie) of West Fargo, ND, and Kim (Corey) Gronewold of Worthington, MN; six grandchildren, Lindsay and Cole Bents, Addison, Morgan, and Reegan Bents, and Mackenzie DeGroot, sisters, Wanda Thompson of Minot, ND and Rhonda (Jeff) Goede of Fenton, MO; in-laws, Leo (Cheryl) Bents, Colleen Bents, Kenny (Diane) Bents, and Burdell (Tammy) Bents, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
