 Marilyn June Reimer, a former long-time resident of Elgin, died in Madison, WI, of natural causes on October 27, 2018. She was 91 years old. Mrs. Reimer was born in Carpentersville, IL, the daughter of Walter and Alma Schumacher on June 14, 1927.

Mrs. Reimer was a graduate of Dundee High School Class of 1945. She married her late husband, William C. Reimer, shortly after he completed his military service in 1947. She was employed for many years at Sherman Hospital in Elgin as Director of Admitting and subsequently at Delnor Hospital in St. Charles until 1993, when she retired.

Mrs. Reimer and her late husband were long-time members of Zion Christian Church (formerly Zion United Church of Christ) in Carpentersville, IL, where she was baptized, confirmed and married. She was an active volunteer in the Church and sang in the choir for many years. Mrs. Reimer enjoyed nothing more than being with family.
