Myrtle Grace Hegge was one of eleven children born to Alma & Elmer Hegge on January 12, 1926 in Elgin, North Dakota.

Myrtle married the love of her life, Oscar Edward Rieker on February 19, 1946 in Baker, Montana. Oscar and Myrtle moved to Washington where they raised their three children Nancy Caputo (Greg), Karen Spence (Steve) and Bruce Rieker (Carla). Their family continued to grow as they welcomed six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Jan and I first square danced with, then became good friends with both Oscar and Myrtle, for many years. Oscar became our (Farmers) auto Insurance agent. I remember bugging him to be sure and keep my rate down every time my new premium came due. And, he did!!

We kept in touch with both Myrtle, and also with Bruce after Oscar died. Bruce then became our Farmers agent for some time.

Both Jan and I have wonderful memories of Myrtle. We add our sincere sympathy to you, Bruce, and also to your entire Rieker family. Your Mom and Dad were very special people in our lives.
