Irene M. Reuter, 104, passed away Nov. 27, 2017 at The Commons on St. Anthony, Auburn. Formerly of Fond du Lac, Wisc. and Bayonet Point, Fla., Irene moved to Auburn in 2006 where she lived at Westminster Manor for 11 years to be near her niece, Linda Russell. During her time in Auburn she was affectionately known as “Aunt Irene” by family and friends, especially those who knew her at Westminster Manor and Westminster Presbyterian Church.
Irene was born July 29, 1913 in Fond du Lac, Wisc. to Otto and Emma Bucholtz and was married to her late husband, Chester J. Reuter, on Nov. 21, 1936. Irene enjoyed a successful career at the Fond du Lac Medical Clinic where she ultimately served as assistant administrator. After retirement, Irene and her husband moved to Florida in 1978. Following her husband’s death in 1998, Irene continued to live in Bayonet Point until moving to Auburn in 2006. She and her husband had no children.
A memorial service for Irene will be held at Westminster Manor on Friday, Dec. 8 at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Patrick D. Heery of Westminster Presbyterian Church officiating. Expressions of sympathy may be made through donations to Westminster Manor, 81 South St., Auburn, NY, where Irene received excellent care and where she was loved and appreciated.
