The MSSC extends its condolences to the family of Dr. Bicker.
Internist Peg Bicker, MD, died in the early morning hours on June 24. Dr. Bicker graduated from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 2010 and completed her residency at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in 2013.
Dr. Bicker devoted her life to helping others, her family said. “She was a brilliant, comforting, beautiful human being, loved by all who knew her,” the family wrote in her obituary.
Dr. Bicker had already earned BFAs in sculpture and art history before she decided to become a physician. “She looked at life with an amazing blend of art and science,” her family said.
She is survived by her husband, Larry Schwarm; her parents, Marjorie Hall Bicker and Richard Bicker of Winfield; her sister, Windy York of Denver; her brother, Micah Bicker of Oregon; and five nieces and nephews.
Because Dr. Bicker was passionate about art and medicine, her family has established memorials in her name with the Wichita Art Museum and Prairie Home Health & Hospice in Dodge City.
