Aileen Elizabeth Treick was born Saturday, October 5, 1907 to Edward and Clara (Simantel) Kepplinger on the family farm near Dwight, Illinois.  In 1911, the family moved to a farm southeast of Scotland, South Dakota. She attended country school through the eighth grade and then graduated from Scotland High School in 1926.  After earning her teacher’s certificate, she taught country school for several years.  Aileen was united in marriage to Erwin Treick on May 23, 1931 at Harbine, Nebraska. A son, Roger, was born to this union in 1935. They farmed west of Scotland until 1973, when they retired to Scotland. She enjoyed reading, crocheting and knitting.  Her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, will remember her for the delicious cookies she baked for them. She lived in her own home well past her 100th birthday, and became a resident of the Good Samaritan Society of Scotland in June of 2009. Aileen passed away on Tuesday, February 22, 2011, having attained the age of 103 years, 4 months, and 17 days.
She is survived by a son, Roger (June) Treick of Scotland; a granddaughter, Janelle (Jay) Pidcock and great-granddaughters Katelyn and Alissa Pidcock, all of St. Louis, Missouri; three step-granddaughters and their families: Debra Bertrand of Council Bluffs, Iowa, great-grandson Joshua Bertrand of Vermillion, great-granddaughter Nicole (Corey) Pechous and their son Weston, all of Sioux Falls, and great-granddaughter Traci (Cody) VandeWeerd and their son Griffin, all of Eudora, Kansas; Karla (Robert) O’Connor and great-granddaughter Tierney, all of Sioux Falls; and Sheila Turgeon and husband Mark of Sioux Falls.
In addition to her parents, Edward and Clara Kepplinger, Aileen was preceded in death by her husband, Erwin Treick in 1982, daughter-in-law, Marlene J. Treick, two brothers, Edwin and Frank Kepplinger, and sister, Elnora (Kepplinger) Nelles.
