William H. 'Bill' Ideker

Ideker, William H. "Bill"

Jean, Jerry, Joy and your families.

I am so sorry to hear of Bill's passing. There were so many times that Walt and I should have thanked him for his endless help and support.
We did not thank him near enough.

He may of had a bit of a rough exterior for most of the people that didn't know him, but for those of us did we know that he had a heart of gold.

My deepest sympathies,

Pauline Hodgson
It was a great pleasure to have known Bill well as I grew up in Dubois. The many visits and good advice I recieved from him will be treasured by me always. I extend my deepest sympathies for his loss.
Jean, Jerry, Joy and families:

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Jean and family,
We were so sorry to hear of Bill's passing away and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Bert always enjoyed the visits he would make to the "shop" when you were back in Minnesota.

Dear Jean and family: I grew up with Billy in Brownsville and spent many happy hours up at the farm playing "sheepshead" in the large kitchen. We did some hunting together and always had fun at the dances held at the old Germania Hall in Brownsville. I know he struggled in his later years with illness. I was surprised and delighted to hear that Billy was a Mason and a Knight Templar as I am. May his soul rest in peace. It is good to remember that we are all "traveling upon the level of time to that undiscovered country, from whose bourne no traveler returns."
Hi Fred helped me find this so tomorrow I can somewhat be with all you folks hope everything goes well. I'll be talking with you all later much love to you all. your sister-in-law Arliss also Auntie take care me.Dave says to say Hi too. Arliss & David.
Hi Jean and family,
I was so sorry to not be able to be with you and your family for Bill's funeral services.
Lots of hugs to all of you.
I will be calling you soon.

Love,
Shirley Richards
Jean, Jerry and Lourie, Joy and Rodney,

I am sorry I missed Bill's services and conveying my condolences in person. With livestock, they always seem to know when you want to go someplace and pick that day to do something to take up your time. I heard it was a good service and hope it consoled you in this time of grief.

With Deep Sympathy,
Jean and Family,

It was with sincere regret that I heard about Bill. I have good memories from working with him. Seldom does a workday go by that I don't call upon the mechanical knowledge gleaned from being around Bill and Shorty and Bruce. I remember warmly your family as good friends and neighbors for many years in Dubois, and we pray God's grace and comfort through your time of sorrow.

With love and sympathy,

Jerry and Nancy Reed
I was so sorry to hear about Bill's death. How many times I called on him for help when I was stranded by an obstinate vehicle! He never showed any frustration at my helplessness. Guess I thought he would always be around. His familiar face and presence will be missed.

Our thoughts and prayer are with you, Jean and family, in your time of loss. It seems forever ago since we lived in that little house up in the valley. Marv remembers all the good times he and Mel had up on the farm with Bill and Arn. I remember Bill as a happy-go-lucky, jovial kind of fellow. May you have many, many more good memories to recall and enjoy.

The blessings of The Lord, Jesus Christ, be on you all.

Marv and Etta Miller

Jean, Jerry, Laurie, Joy, Rodney, Cody and Carley,

Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers now and always. We treasure memories of time spent with all of you. Bill always had a huge hug and backslap for each of us, and is now at peace. Wishing you much love, peace and comfort to carry you through the tough stuff.
Jean, Jerry, Joy and families....Our thoughts and prayers are with you in these hard times. As Dad has shared many great memories with us, I remember some nights at the farm during your visits, listening to Uncle Bill laugh as he and Dad would tell stories. Hang onto the good times, knowing he can be in peace now. God Bless.
