Nancy Reilly

TUCSON, Ariz. – Nancy Reilly, 75, beloved wife of Robert Reilly, and loving mother of Mark and Paul, was set free of Alzheimer’s disease on Tuesday, March 5, 2013.

Nancy was born Sept. 22, 1937, in Woodstock, the daughter of Adeline and Edward Klemme. She was a graduate of Northern Illinois University, where she met Robert, her husband of more than 52 years. She was an elementary school teacher at Andalusia for 30 years.

Nancy traveled far and wide. She visited all 50 states, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Nancy loved to watch birds and enjoyed the winter gathering of the eagles on the Mississippi River. She was an avid jewelry maker and glass bead designer. The “Gem Show” of Tucson was one of her many favorites. 

Nancy always was very supportive of her family, with everything from a kind word to a hug and a kiss to make it all better. She helped her husband at Reilly’s Berry Farm in Milan, and would enjoy all the berries she could freeze.

Nancy is survived by Robert Reilly; Mark and Maria Reilly; Paul and Laurie Reilly and their three sons; and Nancy’s brother, Craig Klemme of Woodstock.

Nancy is dearly missed, but her loving memory will prevail.
