Letty, age 86, died on Friday at her home in Radcliffe, IA. Letty Marie (Hilpipre) Reisetter was born on February 24, 1925, to Charles Victor and Jessie Bell (Rapp) Hilpipre. She was born at home on a farm near Blairsburg. Letty was one of twelve children. She married Glenn Reisetter on November 1, 1945, at the Salem Lutheran Parsonage. She was baptized and confirmed at Salem Lutheran Church, rural Radcliffe, where they attended church until their deaths.
She and Glenn raised their four children on the Reisetter Century Farm where she helped in the fields. They raised many cattle and chickens and had a garden. They lived there until they moved to town in 1994. Letty adored her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Each one held a special place in her heart. She loved helping out at Duck Worth Wearing and always took baked goods to share. In her spare time, she enjoyed crocheting and making kringla and lefse.
