Judith Ann (Arpin) Bieker
Judith Ann (Arpin) Bieker went to be with her Savior on Tuesday, July 4, 2023 at her home in Hays, Kansas. Judy was 76 years of age.
Judy was born on December 19, 1946, at her home in Damar, Kansas, to Alfred and Marcella (DesMarteau) Arpin. In Damar, she spent a happy childhood as one of five siblings and she graduated from Damar High School.
Judy graduated from cosmetology school in Hays and then met the love her life, Bill Bieker. On February 3, 1968, they wed in Hays and began their 54 years of marriage until Bill’s death on October 18, 2022. During their marriage, Judy and Bill grew their family to include Scott, Brian, and Danelle. For many years, Judy used her talents as a hair stylist and later worked at a local dental office. She cheerfully dropped whatever she was doing to give haircuts at home if a family member or friend needed one.
Judy and Bill savored their time at home together and were a couple who truly enjoyed working side by side on home improvement. While Judy claimed to be unable to keep a houseplant, she had no trouble sustaining a beautiful vegetable garden. However, what family and friends will remember Judy for the most is her walk with the Lord. She diligently studied the Scriptures and faithfully prayed. She yearned for the day she would be in the presence of her Savior Jesus Christ.
Survivors include her sons, Scott (Molly) Bieker of Olathe, Brian (Dallas) Bieker of Manhattan, daughter, Danelle Bieker of Hays, a sister, Renee (Tony) Marcotte of Damar, her grandchildren, Adrienne Bieker of Shawnee, Alexis Bieker (Gabe) Fletcher of Manhattan, Cole Bieker of Manhattan, Macy Bieker of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Justin and Abbie Bieker of Hays, and great grandchildren, Ellis Fletcher of Manhattan and Jaxton Bieker of Hays.
Funeral services will be at 10:00 am on Thursday, July 27, 2023 at WaKeeney Church of God, 1300 Easter Ave., WaKeeney, Kansas. Inurnment for the immediate family will follow in Kansas Veterans’ Cemetery. Services are in the care of Hays Memorial Chapel Funeral Home.
