        RUDOLPH BLECHA
        Rudy Blecha, son of Albert Blecha,Sr. and Anna (Kozak) Blecha was born near Burchard, Nebraska December 21, 1902. During his childhood, he lived on farms in Nebraska and South Dakota. As a young man, he worked as a hired hand for various farmers.

        On September 28, 1927 he married Mildred Pesek. They were married in Beatrice, Nebraska and from there made the long trip to Letcher, South Dakota, where they started farming. Ila Mae was born there. In 1934, Rudy took his family back to Nebraska where he farmed until 1972. He farmed near DuBois, Humboldt, where son Robert Lee was born, and Pawnee City. He and Mildred retired in Pawnee City and he continued to work the soil in his big gardens. He lovingly cared for Mildred as her health failed. If he had any spare time, he liked to fish and play cards.

        In May of 1994, he fell and broke his hip. He recuperated in a nursing home and then he and Mildred returned to their home and were able to remain there for nearly a year with the special care of Connie Dorn and his family.

        In July 1995, Rudy's health was declining and he returned to the nursing home where he passed away.

        He leaves to mourn, his wife, Mildred; his daughter, Ila Mae Helms; his son, Robert and good friend Connie Dorn; four grandchildren and three great grandchildren; three sisters, Anna Latza of Mitchell, South Dakota, Emma (Orvin) Kinsey of Beatrice, Agnes (Lester) Penkava of Humboldt; one brother, William (Lorna) Blecha of Syracuse, Nebraska; one sister-in-law, Agnes Blecha of Pawnee City; and many other relatatives and friends.
