Obituary for Ruth Leick

Ruth Leick
Iola Ruth Leick passed away suddenly on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City, Iowa.

Visitation will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 PM on Friday, March 23, 2018 at the Egelhof, Siegert and Casper Westview Funeral Home and Crematory, 2659 John F. Kennedy Rd., Dubuque. Funeral services will be held at Grand View United Methodist Church, 3342 John Wesley Drive, Dubuque at 10:30 AM, Saturday, March 24, 2018, with visitation prior to the service from 9:15 to 10:15.

Ruth was born January 23, 1938 in Ottumwa, Iowa to Wayne B. and Addie (Rill) Whipple. After graduating from Agency High School in Agency, Iowa, she trained as a secretary, working in a number of communities in Iowa and Missouri before settling in Dubuque in 1974. She retired in 2003 after more than two decades of secretarial work at Mercy Medical Center.

Ruth married Melvin Leick on May 25, 1984, and they spent their years together traveling the world and enjoying their children and grandchildren. Ruth was also passionate about service and devoted herself for many years to doing outreach and support for Grand View United Methodist Church. She had also recently trained as a volunteer for Hospice of Dubuque. She lived a rich, full and varied life, and was planning new adventures at the time of her unexpected passing. Her joyful and generous spirit touched many lives, and she will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Surviving are husband Melvin Leick of Dubuque, children Randy (Dianne) Wallace of Omaha, Nebraska and Rhonda Wallace of Dodgeville, Wisconsin; stepsons Daniel (Nancy) Leick of Dubuque, John (Wendy) Leick of Aurora, Illinois, John “TJ” Leick of Dubuque, and Mark Leick of Alaska; grandchildren Nathan, Matthew, Michael, Makayla, Jamison, Addison, Samuel, Jocelyn and Nolan; and great-grandson Alex; along with sister Miriam Samuelson, sister-in-law Marilyn Whipple and brothers Carl (Norma) Whipple, Charles Whipple, and Harold (Kay) Whipple.

Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Richard and Paul Whipple and by her daughter Robin Wallace.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks memorials be made to Grand View United Methodist Church, Mercy Medical Center or Hospice of Dubuque.
