Geraldine A. Bierman was born on November 20, 1922, at Aberdeen, SD, to Walter and Louise (Steger) Bierman. She grew up near Chelsey, SD, where she attended school and graduated from Cresbard High School with the Class of 1937. She then attended Stewart’s Beauty School. On June 3, 1944, she married Albert H. Dunker at Aberdeen. They farmed on Albert’s parents’ homestead east of Warner where they also raised their seven children.

Geraldine was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Stratford. She will be remembered by everyone for her strong faith and love of family. She had a deep appreciation of farm life, gardening, tending her flowers and caring for her dogs and cats. When she was unable to attend church she would listen to Trinity Lutheran on the radio.

Geraldine would still be seen driving a grain truck when she was in her eighties and sitting on the riding lawn mower when she was in her nineties. She loved spending time with her family and enjoyed when friends and neighbors would stop by to visit.

Grateful for having shared Geraldine’s life are her children: Sharon (Ronnie) Fischbach, Mansfield, Dennis Dunker, Warner, Shirley (Bob) Kroell, Aberdeen, Shelia Dunker, Warner, Alan (Carla) Dunker, Minot, ND and Dan (Robin) Dunker, Aberdeen; daughter-in-law, Karen Dunker; Grandchildren: Wayne, Brian, Mike, Amy, Eric, Doug, Shelly, Shane, Jennifer, Justin, Jessica, Scott, Tami Teresa, Tonya, and Tracy; numerous great-grandchildren, three great-great-grandchildren and her loyal dog, Jack.

Preceding Geraldine in death are her husband, Albert Dunker, son, Gene Dunker, grandchildren, Jeff Fischbach and Tina Dunker, parents, Walter and Louise Bierman, siblings, Don, Doris, and Gene.
