Jannette K. Gustman, 75, of Yankton, SD, formerly of Plainview, NE, passed away on Sunday, October 9th, 2022 at Avera Sacred Heart-Majestic Bluffs, surrendering to an aggressive illness with ALS.

She spent the last 13 years as a USDA beef inspector in Omaha, Ne, before retiring in 2018. Jannette and Fred then moved from Plainview to Yankton, SD. They were members of the Plainview Lutheran Church until moving to Yankton.
