To Floyd and Brenda and the whole Bieker family I share in the sorrow of the loss of Mrs. Bieker. She was a very special lady who devoted her life to her family. Growing up in the neighborhood with Floyd I always felt welcome in her home. My memory of her will always be of her in the kitchen preparing all the game that was brought home after hunting, and her working in the garden. No one went hungry and she made everyone feel at home. She will be missed here on earth, but rewarded in heaven for all she did.

I remember going to Aunt Dora's home when I was very young. She was such a sweet lady. May the Lord hold her in his arms a little longer and point her in the right direction so she can be with her sisters and family and friends. What a party they will have. You are all in our prayers and thoughts at this difficult time. Love Joan and Patrick

Aunt Dora was a truly loving and caring lady. I felt calm, at peace, and happy around her. She'll be sorely missed by us all, and particularly her family.

Aunt Dora [not my real aunt but she was so kind to let me call her that] was so much a part of my life especially after her sister aline died and my mother Irene Sharum passed away. She and Helen was nice enough to share her time with me until she could no longer hear to talk on phone anymore and tell me about the old days with mom,aline and the things she got into and the making of the wine. Also she filled me in on the good old days and told me the things i needed to hear when someone in my family was ill. I will always treasure these times and thank all of you for sharing your mom. and grandmother with me...Love all of you and prayers are with you thru this trying time.
