Marjorie Marilyn Reiche

With gratitude for a life well lived, but with great sadness, we share with you the news of the passing of Marjorie Marilyn (Scheuneman) Reiche on Tuesday, September 25, 2018, at the age of 78. She is now released from the increasing health challenges through which she journeyed with courage and determination over the past few years.
Marjorie was born on March 10, 1940, to Bernhard (Ben) and Martha (Schultz) Scheuneman at the family home at Lake Dore. She always loved the water and in fact every window in her home faces the lake.
On September 8, 1961, she was married to Walter Reiche, who predeceased her on February 22, 2012. She is survived by their daughter, Janet Reiche-Schoenfeldt, and son-in-law, Kevin Schoenfeldt; and her grandsons, Scott (Brianne) and Jordan (Dayna). She was predeceased by her infant son, Andrew, in 1964.
She was predeceased by brothers Victor (Evelyn), Jack, Bennie, and Clarence, and by sisters June (Adolf) Petrulis and Anna (Gordon) Robinson. She is survived by her sister, Marion (Jack) Buder, and her brother Lawrence (Bernadette) Scheuneman, and a sister-in-law Lue Scheuneman, as well as by Walter’s sisters Alice Bieber, Martha Kodrzynski, and Marie (Bernhard) Zettler. She is also remembered with love by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews on both the Scheuneman and Reiche sides of the family.
Marjorie attended SS No. 11 School at Lake Dore before proceeding to Pembroke Collegiate Institute in Pembroke for high school. She and Walter farmed and logged together before establishing Reiche Meats on the Reiche homestead. Previously she worked at E.A. Lisks in Eganville and was a school bus driver for Renfrew County Bus Lines. She then worked at Reiche Meats until she retired. No matter what she did she always gave it 100%. When she worked she worked and pushed you to work to the best of your abilities . Marjoire really enjoyed outside work but could make a Christmas dinner with all the fixings. In retirement she loved wood working,reading, discussing current events (especially politics). Macgyvering things together and inventing things were a passion. If anything needed fixing she would fix it or make the part to fix it. Marjoire had a very dry sense of humor and at any time would tell you what exactly she had on her mind and you would get the point. When things were not going well she would always say, “things could be worse”, and “I am not stupid it is just my clothes that makes me look that way.”She had a tremendous amount of empathy for people. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren and tending to her dog (Elisa) and her budgie (Willy).
Friends are invited to share their memories of Marjorie with her family during visitation at the MURPHY FUNERAL HOME, 296 Isabella Street, Pembroke, on Thursday, September 27, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm. Funeral service will be held in St John’s Lutheran Church, Bonnechere, at 2291 Lake Dore Road, on Friday, September 27, at 11 a.m. Interment St. John’s Lutheran Cemetery.
