Beshka Susan Ringstad was born in Custer, S.D., Aug. 28, 1976, to Pam (Easson) and Don Ringstad.
She was a 4.0 graduate of Black Hills State University with a degree in political science. She had four children: Hadrian, Arika, Hannah and Ezra.
Beshka thought the world of her children and loved them so much. She was always proud of their accomplishments. She loved to argue politics and her knowledge of the English language was hard to match, rarely losing in a game of Scrabble.
Beshka lost her father at age 5 and her younger sister later in life, both traumatic events that weighed on her mind throughout her life.
Beshka died peacefully in her home in Custer Nov. 6, 2018. She was 42.
She is survived by her mother, Pam Easson (Bob Easson); four children, Hadrian Kindt, Arika Brink, Hannah Brink and Ezra Halverson; brothers, Donnie (Sarah) Ringstad and Peter DeJong.
A memorial service for her family will be held at Mountainview Baptist Church in Custer Nov. 14 at 2 p.m.
