Audrey Jane Pinkelman was born Jan. 13, 1955, to Glenn and Norma (Ketter) Foster. She was one of seven siblings. She grew up near Obert. She attended Kelbert grade school and graduated from Hartington High School in 1973.
Audrey was blessed with three daughters. In 1996, she married Daniel J. Pinkelman.
Audrey loved her family, particularly her five grandchildren. She enjoyed being outside and keeping busy. Her favorite pass time was going on road trips to the river, she loved to boat, float and build big campfires. She never missed any of her grandchildren’s activities and was always their biggest fan.
She had the amazing ability to remember everyone’s birthdays, anniversaries and even death dates. She sent cards any opportunity she had and her presence at a birthday party meant lots of balloons.
She worked at many places throughout life, and like her father, was a jack-of-all-trades. She worked at M-tron, First National Bank of Omaha, B&B Locker and managed the Green Diamond, just to name a few. She recently retired from the Human Services Center and was currently working part time at Casey’s in Hartington and the Dollar Tree in Yankton.
Audrey is survived by her husband, Daniel J. Pinkelman, St. Helena; three daughters, Mandy (Reggie) Hochstein; and their daughter, Hazel Jane, Hartington; Katie (Todd) Timmermann, and their daughter, Rehgan J., Washougal, Wash.; and Cindy (Ryan) Chilson and their children, Ian Duane, Ali Lynn and Lea Jo, Newman Grove; six brothers and sisters, Connie Otteman, North Bend; Larry (Marilyn) Foster, South Sioux City; Laurie (Donald) Schulte, Bow Valley; Wanda (Duane) Kruse, Marbel Rock, Iowa; Russel Foster, Phoenix, Ariz.; Claudia (Greg) Hite, Wynot; and her mother, Norma Foster, Wynot.
