My brother Gary and I were Retas cousins on our fathers side of the family...there were only four of us...and we lost “Skip” many years ago. Reta always told me she really looked forward to my birth because she was the oldest at 13. I remember fondly visits to my Aunt Lena & Uncle Pete’s home in the summer when I was little....and idolized her as a teen..and a majorette in the SHS band. Oh the special memories!
Unfortunately because of distance, we didn’t stay close but another favorite memory was when she sent me a picture of her holding LeeAnn when she was a baby...and I was a teenager!.. ..Oh the memories.! Then in 2000 when a cousin who lived in Northumberland on my mothers s
...ide died , we reconnected and over the next 19 years stayed in touch pretty regularly. She, LeeAnn & Glen even visited my home and we went to Va. Beach . She loved the beach and yes always had a beautiful tan!
Reta is my last contac with my fathers side of the family and I will miss her always....especially when visiting Sunbury & Northumberland!
...Oh the memories!!!

Dear Lee Ann,
I'm so very sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of spending time with our families getting together for picnics, etc. when we were young. Now the great high school buddies are together again and Heaven will never be the same.
Blessings to you and your family,
aka: June's daughter

Reta & Homey were great neighbors that I remember as a child growing up.. I will always remember spending many summer days either sitting on the front porch or in the kitchen talking, or then laying out working on our tans, (Reta was always so tan in the summer.) They included us like we were family and even took my brother & I to Wildwood one summer. During the holidays we would go over every year as a kid and watch Emmet Otters Jug Band Christmas. These memories make my heart smile when I think of them.. they truly were the best neighbors.

I will remember Mrs. Moyer for her kindness and the travels that her friends, Lee Ann, and I took together, especially when she tried to teach me to float in a pool in New England! These memories warm my heart.

Reta was always so welcoming when I joined you guys on the back deck. She appreciated a good meal, but nothing got in the way of her Phillies! I hope you can remember for a long life, well lived.
