Wilma Reitz Obituary – Rancho Palos Verdes, CA

It is with deep sadness that we mourn the death of Wilma Jean Reitz on September 10, 2021 at the age of 86. Wilma will be lovingly remembered as a proud and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Wilma was born on August 20 in Platte Center, Nebraska and enjoyed a wonderful life with her husband of 68 years, John. They settled in Rancho Palos Verdes and raised their children, Bill (Pam), Jacke (Lyle) Prideaux, LIsa (Joe) Kastelan, Scott and Kim (Kenny) Youngblood. She was an adoring sister of Carolee Werner, grandmother of Matt (Alexis), Courtney (Tyler), Cheryl, Casey, Grant, Kendra, Kurrin, Jakob and Sam, and great-grandmother of Kennedy, Saylor and Melissani. In addition to her family, Wilma also loved the community around her. She has worked for the children of the Los Angeles Unified School District for more than twenty years. After her retirement, she enjoyed life with John as loving grandparents at many sporting events, traveling with their closest friends and immediate family, and devoted UCLA football fans. We celebrate the love she shared with her family and friends, and the warmth and affection she brought to everyone around her throughout her long life. She will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts. Wilma was predeceased by her parents, William and Esther; stepfather, Pete; brothers Clifford and Cletus; sister, Julia; and granddaughter, Hanna. Private services were held on September 18.
