Dolores J Reitz

April 6, 1932 — December 5, 2018

Dolores J Reitz, 86, of Franklin Grove, IL. passed away on December 5, 2018 at St. Anthony’s in Rockford. She was born on April 6, 1932 to Clarence and Gladys (Brummer) Reitz in Ashton, IL.

She was Baptized on July 17, 1932 in St John’s Lutheran Church. She graduated from Ashton High School and attended KSB School of Nursing and graduating in 1953. As the Ashton nurse she loved unconditionally giving treatment to all, delivered medication to those in need, always warm hearted to those in need, always the caregiver. Later in life when she retired, she struggled, not being able to care for others. Dolores was a true example of a “faithful servant” of the Lord. If someone needed help, she would do what she could. She was a lifelong resident of Ashton.

She is survived by her nephew, Steve Reitz of Rochelle, IL., great nieces Brittany and Aubrey, and sister in law Hazel Reitz of Hayward, WI. She loved her family, friends and Godchildren unconditionally.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and brother Bill Reitz.
