Rebecca J. “Becky” Bergstrom, age 41 of Austin, Minnesota, died Thursday, May 24, 2018 at Primrose Independent Living in Austin after a long battle with cancer. Becky was born May 12, 1977 in Austin, MN to Keith and Cindy (Peterson) Johnson. She graduated from Austin High School in 1995. Following her graduation she went on to earn her B.A. degree in Early Childhood Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota Duluth. On August 26, 2006 Becky married Daniel Bergstrom at the Hormel Nature Center in connection with St. Olaf Lutheran Church.  The couple made their home in Austin and was blessed with two sons and a daughter. Becky was a stay-at-home mom and a substitute teacher for Austin Public Schools. Becky’s life was centered around simple things.  The love she had for her family mattered most. She was a faithful volunteer at school for her kids and was their number one supporter in all their athletic events.  Becky loved the outdoors, camping and hiking at Whitewater State Park, annual trips up north to the family’s Vacationland Resort on Ottertail Lake, Harley rides (before kids!), flip-flops, Oreo McFlurries, mowing the lawn, and keeping the fire burning in the farmhouse! She treasured her relationship and the time she was able to spend with her grandparents.  Becky was full of grit and determination.  When they told her she had a week to live, she lived 101 days!  It was her mother’s 24/7 care and the love of her family and friends that allowed her to be with us as long as she was. 

Survivors include her husband, Daniel Bergstrom and children Ryder (12), Boden (10), and Paisley (8); her mother and stepfather Cindy (Scott) Sorensen, her father Keith Johnson (Dawn Thorne); siblings Tim (Ashley) Johnson, Aaron Johnson; in-laws RJ (DeDee) Bergstrom, Jessica (Jason) Carlson, Abbey Bergstrom (Logan Cambern); nieces Elle Johnson, Kennedy Thompson, Haven Carlson, Willow Cambern; nephews Peyton Johnson, Boone Carlson, Hollis Carlson, Jack Johnson, Ole Cambern, Henrik Johnson; grandparents Robert and Loretta Peterson, and Lamen and Janice Johnson; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and extended family and friends. Becky was preceded in death by her grandparents-in-law Norbert and Maggie Bergstrom and Ralph and Agnes Waters, and her great-grandparents.

Funeral service for Becky will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church with Pastor Karen Behling officiating. Visitation will be held from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at the Worlein Funeral Home in Austin, and will continue from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. at the church on Wednesday. Interment will be in Oakwood Cemetery in Austin. In lieu of flowers memorials are preferred to the family in anticipation of establishing a scholarship fund for her children.  Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.worlein.com.
