Virginia S. Kreiter, 94, of Breese, died Monday, February 4, 2019 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese.

She was born March 15, 1924 in Aviston, daughter of Fred and Leona Lohman, nee Vollet, and they preceded her.

She married Melvin Kreiter on January 14, 1947 at St. Francis Catholic Church in Aviston, and he died January 30, 2006.

Other precedents included her siblings, Ruth Ann “Dolly” Warnecke and her husband Cornelius “Buddy”, Frederick H. Lohman and his wife Jacqueline, Mary Louise “Picky” Haynes and husbands John Chester and Joseph Haynes, Angela “Red” Richardson and her husband Dr. Francis, Clare “Cuffie” Hustedde and her husband Jerome; father-inlaw and mother-in-law Joseph and Mathilda Kreiter, nee Gnaedinger; and brother-in-law Don Depper.

She is survived by her brother, Terry (Cathy) Lohman of Trenton; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Virginia was a member of St. Dominic Catholic Church, St. Dominic Church Altar Sodality and Daughters of Isabella Precious Lord Circle 18, where she was an officer and past president. She also volunteered for a variety of charitable organizations and drives which included the March of Dimes, Girl Scouts of America, St. Dominic Rummage Sale and the Church Picnic, to name a few.

Virginia retired from St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese in 1986 after 15 years of service, prepared taxes at the Clinton County Farm Bureau for many years, and also managed numerous rental properties and farmed with her husband. She was dedicated to her church and to her community, always pitching in to help a cause or fill a need. To her family she was the matriarch, the historian, the wise one, and a source of unconditional love and support.

Her memory was remarkable as was her attitude about life. Her ability to recall dates, events, and details was uncanny. Her patience and grace in the face of adversity was evident to all who knew her and she maintained a positive and determined attitude even to her last days on earth. Virginia was very much a people person, and she was happiest when she was with family and friends or socializing in the community. To know her was to love her.
