BELLEVUE, Iowa - Darlene Reeg, 88, of Bellevue, passed away on the morning of Monday, Oct. 28, 2013, at Mill Valley Care Center in Bellevue.
Friends and family may call from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at Hachmann Funeral Home, Belle-vue. A funeral service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at St. John's Lutheran Church, St. Donatus, where friends may call after 9 a.m.
Darlene was born on Feb. 21, 1925, in St. Donatus, daughter of Clarence and Edna Schenk. She married Robert John Reeg on Nov. 5, 1946, and they farmed together for 49 years in the St. Donatus area until his death in 1996. Darlene dearly loved her husband, Bob, and the life they shared on their beautiful farm near St. Donatus. They are now together again.
She was a devoted member of St. John's Lutheran Church, St. Donatus.
Her family and friends will fondly remember Darlene for her incredible energy, enthusiastic willingness to cook for them and impressive holiday dinners, which included riced potatoes and at least two jello salads. She loved traveling, her huge garden, snowmen, the Chicago Cubs, and a rousing game of cards. In fact, she was never without both a deck of cards and a camera in her purse.
Darlene is survived by her sister, Dorothy Schroeder; her four children, Robert "Bob" (Gigi) Reeg, of Bellevue, Dale (Mary) Reeg, of St. Donatus, Gloria (Steve Given) Reeg, of Bainbridge Island, Wash., and Nancy (Stan) Gorski, of Manahawkin, N.J.; and 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, of whom she was so proud.
