  • Jeff & Reiten Family,

    We are profoundly sorry to hear your mom’s sudden death. We knew Dr. Reiten and Lois Reiten since 1978, the year we moved in Tri-cities. Dr. Reiten remained our family doctor till his death, and of course Lois was always in the clinic, working side by side with Dr. Reiten. Lois was always very gentle, friendly, and helpful not only in matters related to our dental visit, but also to other social and personal issues. She would call us at times, and chat about our sons. The last time she called, it was about a month ago. We were planning to visit her. We had called her, and she had returned the phone call, but it was not meant to see her one more time. In the past, whenever she visited us,she loved the roses, and other flowers.

    We have a lot of good memories with Dr. Reiten and Lois Reiten. May God give them eternal peace, and give you patience to bear this loss.

  • Dear Greg and Jeff,

    What a loss! Your mother was one of a kind. I just saw her at Einan’s on May 30, at the visitation for my mother. Who would have thought Lois would have followed Dottie by just three weeks?!

    Your mom had a warm heart that embraced everyone who knew her. She adored you, she adored the grandkids, and I know she left you with many warm memories.

    Be good to yourselves as you grieve her loss.

  • The Reiten Family,

    I worked with your Mom and Dad for 7 years and so enjoyed my job and knowing both of them. I had not seen Lois in several years, but Jeff I have kept in contact with you during the Holidays. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Greg, Jeff, and family,

    So sorry to hear of your loss. I always enjoyed visiting with your Mom here in Las Vegas. She was always excited about planning a new trip or activity. I’ll remember her support and patience as we musicians trudged through her house to practice in her basement during our high school years. She will be missed by all that knew her.
