Marion (Riethmuller) John

Monday, October 16, 2017

Marion R. (Riethmuller) John, age 97, of Glenshaw,  lost her zest for life on Monday, October 16, 2017, past in peace and was ready to be a willing angel for her Lord and creator. Born September 18, 1920, to the late Elmer and Clara (Tessmer) Reithmuller; Sister to the late Robert C. Reithmuller; survived by her husband of 68 years, Roy H. John; son, Craig and daughter-in-law Zoie, granddaughter Sarah Mei, all of Freeport, Maine; son Kent and daughter-in-law Beverly, both of Cranberry Twp. Marion graduated from Shaler High School with high honors in 1939. She graduated from University of  Pittsburgh with honors in 1943 where she received her B.S. Degree. Marion went on to teach 7th grade at the former Braun School in Glenshaw for 8 years (1943-1951), substituting thereafter for elementary level students. She remained friends to classmates and student throughout her full and active life, retired to be a wonderful and devoted wife, mother, and homemaker. Marion was a long time active church member of Elfinwild Presbyterian Church as a Women's Circle leader, served many years on the auxiliary at the former United Presbyterian Home in Wilkinsburg, never lost her love for teaching and mentoring the young and teaching Sunday school for 30 plus years until the age of 85. Of equal importance to Marion's faith and family were her numerous friends and beautiful flower gardens. Marion was an easy friend to all ages, church members, neighbors wherever she lived, all who's lives and hearts she touched. Marion always put others cares, needs, and worries way ahead of her own, giving so much of her time to a grieving or sick friend, delivering a hand-made bouquet of flowers from her gardens, a casserole, jar of soup, or baked goods she prepared with love. Marion enjoyed nature, being outdoors, springtime, and all of Gods creatures, especially cats, dogs, and the antics of monkeys. Marion, mom, or "Maymay" will be truly missed by so many hearts she touched and lives she bettered with having our enduring love from the fond memories we shared and more. The family extends our thanks to the wonderful staff at the Haven of North Hills who cared for, loved, and adored Marion. Our thanks also goes out to those from Gateway Hospice for their great recent care and concern. Friends will be received on Thursday from 2:00 to 8:00 PM at the Bock Funeral Home, Ltd. 1500 Mt. Royal Blvd., Glenshaw where a Funeral Service will be held on Friday at 12 noon with the Rev. Dr. Dirk Lesnett presiding.
