Ellen and family: We offer condolences and prayers as you suffer the loss of your loved one. I wasn’t able to greet you personally but know you are in our thoughts. Judy Clark, Community Care Dept., Sisters of Mercy – McAuley Residence
Even when families are not closely connected, when one of our Beikirch members leaves us it is felt by those who you may not know. As long as you are remembered you are still with us.

I feel so blessed for the time we have spent together, Gramma. I love and miss you already, and I will see you down the road.
I have uploaded some recent photos of Irene. Please feel free to add your own.
Steve and Brenda , my sincere condolences on the passing of your loved one. May God bless you and keep you in his care.
To Don, Ellen & Steve (and families), I am very sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a wonderful Lady. I remember a conversation I had with her in your Shady Way kitchen many, many years ago about hard vs soft water. Weird, huh?
On behalf of the Ryan family, I would like to extend our condolences. God bless.
