Nancy J. Reimert, 78 of Pottstown, PA wife of Forrest C. Reimert, passed away surrounded by her family on Saturday, April 4th at Pottstown Memorial Hospital.
Born and raised in Pottstown, Nancy was the daughter of the late Henry Iral and Susie (Keri) Slade and sister to the late H. Richard Slade.
Nancy was a 1959 graduate of Pottstown High School and a lifelong member of St. Aloysius Catholic Parish. She and Forrest retired to Jacksonville, FL for several years before deciding to move back up north, settling for a short time in Darlington, MD then finally moving back to Pottstown.
Everyone loved Nancy and seemed to gravitate towards her, she was that friend that you always wanted to have, and a friend for life. She was a great cook, always trying new recipes, she loved to cook for friends and family, it didn’t matter if it was a picnic or dinner around the dining room table, everyone loved the food, she loved making it, and loved listening to everyone’s chatter while they ate. Another thing that occupied her time was her passion for crocheting and making the most beautiful afghans and baby blankets that she proudly gave to those she cared about.
The real loves of her life and apple of her eyes, besides her husband Forrest, were her children and grandchildren, who all referred to her as Ma. There wasn’t anything that she wouldn’t do for them, and she cherished whatever time they had together. Whether near or far she loved talking with them and sharing whatever was going on in their lives, including gossip that they wanted to pass along, either over the phone or on their many “visits”.
Surviving is husband Forrest; daughters Shelly (Scott) of Knoxville, TN; Christine Crater (Michael), of Pottstown; and son H. Scott Reimert (Dorothy), of Bel Air, MD.
Grandchildren, Zachary Spangenberg, Kristopher Matias, USMC Staff Sargent Jarad Bratz, H. Jacob Reimert, Alexander Reimert, Katelyn Reimert, and great grandson Randy Patrick Bratz. Also, numerous nieces and nephews, cousins and beloved dog Murphy.
