Headline: A Loving Mother (Angel) of Nine


Theresa Sophie (Majewski) Reeger peacefully passed away in Myrtle Beach, SC formerly of Erie, Pa on April 6, 2018 surrounded by family.  Born on May 10, 1928 to the late Joseph and Josephine Jagielski Majewski.


 Theresa had met Bennett Reeger at GE on the assembly line and married in August 1948. Retired in Erie, Pa in 1985 and moved to Gastonia, NC where she remained happily married for 64 years until the passing of Ben in July 2013. They both had enjoyed a wonderful retirement life together traveling and enjoying family.  A few jobs Theresa had worked throughout her life were at Niagara plastics, JC Penney and Blair New Process, but mainly Theresa has spent her whole life making a warm, beautiful, loving home for her husband and children in Erie, Pa. Theresa would always host our infamous large family reunions in the back yard and always make sure there was plenty to eat (esp. her rice pudding) for all. Theresa had always opened and welcomed our home for family and friends. 


In addition to her parents, Theresa was preceded in death by her brother John Majewski and wife Lenora, three sisters; Francis (Majewski) Danias (James), Harriet Majewski, Anna Majewski and Joseph Majewski in infancy.
