Mrs. Dyck was the wife of my high school German teacher. Her love for his students was shown in her welcoming us to their home, showing us how to cook German food. I still make her recipe for rouladen, which was published in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch over 50 years ago. RIP Mrs. Dyck and thank you for your many kindnesses.

Alice and I had coffee nearly every day for almost 20 years. I considered her to be my best friend and miss her terribly. She was an amazing woman and I was very proud to call her my friend.

We met Alice as a wonderful yet powerful Lady and are very glad that we were able to get to know her while visiting Kansas from Germany. Her husband was one of the distant cousins of my Dad. Warm regards from Alexandra & Miriam Mueller (Claassen)
