Reitz; they were married for 56 years until his passing. During her professional life, Judy was a realtor, was an accounting supervisor with the former Toledo Trust, and served as assistant to the treasurer of Sharon Manufacturing. She loved to sing and play the piano. Judy played euchre and bridge several times a week, both in person and online.

She frequently spent time with her many dear friends. Judy’s biggest joy was her family; she cherished the time spent with them.
Judy is survived by her daughter Katherine “Kathy” Gopp; son Graydon (Sandra) Reitz; and grandchildren, Jessica (Marc) Palazzolo and Charles Reitz. She was preceded in death by her parents; loving husband John G. Reitz; sister Virginia T. Harter and son-in-law Larry D. Gopp.
