Haley was born on October 7, 1994, in Waterloo, Iowa, to her parents Mark and Nancy Jungling. She was raised in Grundy Center and graduated from Grundy Center High School. Haley welcomed her daughter Emma Jungling into her family on June 2, 2015 and was married to the love of her life, Patrick G. Bierman, on April 24, 2021. Although their time was short together, they loved a lifetime’s worth.
Haley worked as the manager of Spartan Freeze in Grundy Center and as a receptionist at the Meskwaki Tribal Health Clinic.
She was baptized and confirmed at Bethany Presbyterian Church. Haley enjoyed doing her makeup, shopping, and making Tik Tok videos. She also loved being apart of her husband Patrick’s B’n’B automotive pit crew at the races. Haley was a ‘social butterfly.” She never encountered strangers, only friends she hadn’t met yet. She was a faithful friend who was always there for you. Haley cherished her trips up to Minnesota to her parent’s lake house, fishing with her Dad and Ducks Unlimited banquets with her Dad. She adored her Mom and loved every second they spent together; but her true joy in life was being with her daughter Emma; just the two of them cuddled up together on the couch under their favorite blanket.
Haley is survived by her daughter Emma Jungling; husband Patrick Bierman; parents Mark and Nancy Jungling; brothers Nathan (Jorden) Jungling and Matthew (Jordyn) Jungling; nephew Jensen Jungling; grandpa Del (Nancy) Jungling; many aunts, uncles and cousins; father-in-law Darrell Bierman mother-in-law Brenda Bierman; brother-in-law Nathaniel (Melissa) Bierman; nephew-in-law Gabriel Bierman and niece-in-law Evelyn Bierman. She was preceded in death by her daughter Rowen Bierman; grandparents Dee Jungling, Norman and Joyce Van Deest.
