Ann Marie (Wachter) Reinhardt, 87, passed away peacefully on Thursday February 11th fortified with the final Sacraments in unity with the Holy Catholic Church. Beloved wife of the late Hubert Reinhardt, loving mother of Diane (Raymond) Finocchiaro, Kate Reinhardt, the late Laura (Thomas) Wiley, and Mark (Annette) Reinhardt, cherished Grandma of Taylor (George) Reinhardt/Boden, Grace and Jonah Finocchiaro, and Evan and Olivia Wiley, and dear sister of Carol (Melvin) Herr and Jack (Carol) Wachter, dear daughter of the late Marie and Rudolph Wachter, sister-in-law, aunt, great aunt, godmother, cousin, and friend of many and stranger to no one. She will be survived by our fondest memories in the hearts of all of us who loved her dearly.
Graduated from St. Elizabeth’s Academy, Ann met the love of her life at a singles dance at the Casa Loma Ballroom, and they both enjoyed bowling so much that Ann and Hub held their wedding reception in a hall at Tropicana Bowling Lanes in June of 1961. Retired from Dillard’s of 20 years, Ann was a devout Catholic, avid gardener, loved to dance, play cards and laugh with her many close friends collected throughout her life.
