Mrs. Streck moved to Ida Grove after her husband’s death and became involved in men’s and women’s bowling leagues. She served as both leagues’ secretary in recent years. She had been the organist for the Grant township Lutheran church for about 30 years before the congregation was disbanded. The church organ was given to her at that time as a gesture of appreciation.
