She was born at home on the family farm in the Town of Nepeuskum (Rush Lake/Pickett area) on July 11,1931 to Carl and Elsie (Radig) Achterberg. She attended rural schools and then Oakfield High School.
On June 6, 1953 she married Ronald “Bud” Beduhn at Zion Lutheran in Oshkosh. They built their home and the Lord blessed them with three children: Jan, Joy and Jim.
Her working career started at the Drug Store in Winneconne. She also worked at the Canning Factory in Rosendale where she met Bud and then from 1949-1999 (50 years!!) at Miles Kimball Company(MK). Her work ethic was impeccable. After retirement from MK she helped serve hot lunch for the Oshkosh Area Schools. And then helped her kids with anything or everything, too! She loved keeping her home and lawn in picture perfect condition. She always said “Do Your Best!”

She was also a member of The American Legion Auxiliary Giles Luce Post 364 Winneconne marching in parades, helping with Poppy fundraisers and more. God filled her life with many wonderful family and friend traveling adventures with Trinity Lutheran, St. John’s, and the Oshkosh Senior Center. She also enjoyed lunches at First English Church, going to concerts, craft and quilt shows, and line dancing. They were all cherished times.
When life became more challenging, Rona moved to Park View Health Center. Her family said, “We are so grateful to the caring, compassionate, loving staff at Park View! They all gave of themselves for Mom’s comfort and dignity. They became our extended family. You were all her Angels!”
