Nancy Agnes Reiter

Nancy Agnes Reiter, 71, died Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2019, at home hospice in Tucson, Arizona, after a long fight with a rare bone marrow cancer, defying doctors predictions…twice.

She was born July 16, 1948, in Tiffin, to Walter and Agnes Reiter.

She is survived by a daughter, Deidra Reiter of Tucson, Arizona; sisters, Theresa (Robert) Heim of Castalia, Linda Reiter (Jerome) Kendall of Spokane, Washington and Katherine Reiter of Glendale, Arizona; brothers, Charles (Mary Alice) Reiter of Sandusky, Kenneth Reiter and Earl Reiter both of Tiffin; and two beloved grandchildren, Dominic and Damian Garcia of Tucson, Arizona.

Nancy graduated from Marian University in 1970 with majors in Elementary Education and English. She was a life-long teacher, a profession she aspired to since a young child. She taught primary grades at St. Joseph School for many years.

She was active in 4-H as a member for 10 years, winning senior sheep showmanship, and an advisor for 6 years. She was a member of the National Education Association and committed to community service often.

A memorial service will take place in March in Tiffin.

The family suggests that donations be made to Calvert Catholic Schools or a charity or organization of choice.
