Vicky Bjorke

Vicky D. Bjorke, age 50, of Montgomery, New York, died Wednesday, March 30, 2011, at Kaplan Family Hospice Residence in Newburgh, New York.  Her funeral service was at 11 AM Tuesday, April 5th at the First United Methodist Church with the Rev. Donald Crippen officiating.  Burial was in the Restlawn Memory Gardens Cemetery. 

Vicky Darlene Peck was born July 14, 1960, in Huron, to Delbert and Beverly Peck.  Vicky was baptized and confirmed at the First United Methodist Church in Huron.  Vicky was active in 4-H and enjoyed her many years in band.  She adored all animals, particularly her dogs and horses.  Vicky graduated from Huron High School in 1978. 

On April 7, 1979, she married William A. “Bill” Bjorke in the First United Methodist Church in Huron.  They moved to Stuart, Iowa in 1982 and to Vancouver, Washington in 1986, where they lived until 1998.  They have resided in Montgomery, New York for the past thirteen years. 

Vicky enjoyed riding and doting over her horse Dusty for the past 25 years, but perhaps one of the most memorable moments of her life was the birth of her daughter, Shelby in 1996.  Being a mom was first and foremost in Vicky’s life and loving and raising Shelby was everything to her.  It was especially rewarding to Vicky that Shelby shares her mother’s loves of animals, particularly horses.

Vicky is survived by her husband and daughter, William A. “Bill” Bjorke and Shelby Bjorke of Montgomery, New York; her mother, Beverly Peck of Huron; her brothers, Gregory (Merry) Peck of Huron and David (Melissa) Peck of Black Hawk; three sisters-in-law, Susan Bjorke of Wauneta, Nebraska, Denise (Craig) Larsen of Jacksonville, NC, and Susie Smith of Woonsocket; two brothers-in-law, Doug (Cheri) Bjorke of Huron and Phil Smith of Sebastopol, California; her mother-in-law, Jackie Bjorke of Huron; two aunts, Luella Maxvold of Huron and Alice Schutz of Texas; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father, Delbert Peck; her mother-in-law and father-in-law, Marcia and Arthur Bjorke; her sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Debra and Dean Engel; brother-in-law, Brad Smith; great nephew, Christopher Engel.
