Ramona “Mony” Ann (Bieker) Stupka passed away on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, at Citizens Medical Center in Colby.
She was born September 13, 1939, to Theodore and Leona (Billinger) Bieker in WaKeeney, Kansas. She grew up in Victoria and Colby and attended Colby High School. Throughout her school years, Mony enjoyed cheerleading and serving her friends and the community while working at the drug store and Rainbow Drive-Inn.
On February 17, 1958, she married Louis Ernest “Sonny” Stupka at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Colby. The couple had two sons, Dustan and Tab and a daughter, Melinda.

Along with her husband Sonny, Mony enjoyed horses, trail rides, camping and spending time with her grandchildren. As time passed, Mony would often find herself on social media analyzing current events while proudly admiring and enjoying the events of her children, grandchildren, other family and friends.
Ramona is proceeded in death by both of her parents; her husband, Sonny; her son, Tab and two brothers, Chris and Vernon Bieker.
Survivors include daughter Melinda and husband Lindle Harold and grandson Kyle (Christina and Teghan Rosendahl) of Colby; son Dustan and wife Kylie Stupka and grandsons Brigdon, Brock and Brandt of Andover; sisters Peggy (Ron) Young and Maybelle Moore; brother Robert (Lori) Beiker; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
