Reis, Mary Ellenor “Bock” (nee Bockwinkel) December 29, 1933 – June 9, 2019 fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, at age 85, peacefully passed away on June 9, 2019 with her beloved husband, Ron, at her side. Mary was a loving and devoted wife for over 64 years. They were blessed with three children whom she made the center of her life; Laury Kremer, Michael (Jan) Reis and Dr. Susan Reis Butler (Richard). The only thing she loved more than being a mom was being a devoted and adoring grandmother to her four grandchildren; Kelsey (Adam), Michael (Alyssa), Clayton and Connor. She also recently experienced the joy of becoming a great grandmother to Michael Andrew Jr., born just a few weeks before her passing. Mary was preceded in death by her parents Ellenor and Alvin Bockwinkel, her two older brothers, Alvin and Gerald, and her younger sister Susan. She is survived by her dear brother George (Ginny). Mary will also be lovingly remembered by a special friend of the family, Sharon Gerken who was “like a daughter” and even shared the same birthday. Whether you knew her as friend, neighbor, sister-in-law or “Aunt Sissy” the ping pong champ, Mary will remain in the hearts of many.
