Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Myrtle Annie Gronert, age 90, passed away peacefully on March 21, 2012. The widow of Charles F. Gronert, she was formerly a long-time resident of Green Lane and resided in Salt Lake City, Utah since 1998.
Myrtle was born in East Greenville to the late Fred and Emma (Freed) Bieler. She was third in a close-knit family of nine children. She graduated from East Greenville High School and was proud of her awards and the records she held as a high school track star. She married Charles, her high school sweetheart, when he returned from WWII. They were married for over 52 years, and they traveled the U.S. and Europe together.
Myrtle was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Ashton, her only grandchild, was the apple of her eye. In the last 25 years, her favorite role was that of “Gram.” She and her grandson were blessed to have so much memorable time together.
She had two goals in her late 80s – to see her grandson graduate from college and to reach the age of 90. She accomplished both.
Myrtle was a devoted sister and friend. People were drawn to her because of her fun-loving spirit, which brought great laughter and joy. She enjoyed being the life of the party – from her adventurous early adult years to entertaining friends with her singing and dancing at the assisted living center where she lived.
She was a 50 year member of Perkiomen Chapter #318 Order of the Eastern Star and a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Sumneytown and New Goshenhoppen United Church of Christ, East Greenville.
Myrtle is survived by two children, Curtis Gronert and wife, Linda, of Ocean City, NJ and Lori Teske Hudson and husband, Phil, of Salt Lake City, Utah; a grandson, Ashton Teske of Brooklyn, NY; two sisters, Frances Jarman of Evans, GA and Naomi Kutsch of Salisbury, MD and two brothers, Willard Bieler and his wife, Bonnie, of Salisbury, MD and Charles Bieler and his wife, Judy, of San Diego, CA. She was predeceased by three brothers, Russell, Frederick and T. Robert Bieler and a sister, Arlene Shiffert.
