Karen Lee Reuter age 79, passed away on Thursday, December 30, 2021 at Brookside Care Center after a brief illness.

Born in Pekin, IL on February 11, 1942, she was the daughter of Robert and Flossie Sellers. She was a graduate of Mary D Bradford High School.

On October 29, 1960, she was united in marriage to Gerald Reuter who was the love of her life. They celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary in October of 2021. They were never apart for more than a week their entire marriage and were great role models for their children. They would often spend time holding hands and sharing a blanket on the couch.

Karen would lovingly crochet a blanket for each new grandbaby as a welcome home treasure. She was always making sure everyone was okay and would say, “Can I get you anything,” whether visiting her home or when she was visiting.  Karen loved her family unconditionally and was a dedicated and caring mother to her five children. She adored her sister, brothers, grandchildren and great grandchildren and was a wonderful friend to all. Your life was a blessing, your presence we miss, our memories we will treasure always. You are loved beyond words.

She is survived by her loving husband, Gerald Reuter; her children, Tracey (Mark) Ferris, Paul (Christine) Reuter, Kelly (Kory) Kyllo, Gerald Jr (Maria) Reuter, and Barry (Laura) Reuter; her brothers, Barry (Maureen) Sellers, Robert (Kim) Sellers; her sister, Janie (Tom) Kohler; her grandchildren, Aaron (Bridget) LaMothe, Justin (Sara) McBride, Ashley LaMothe, Kayla Schuett, Jerusha Reuter, Katelyn (Brandan) Reuter, Selah Reuter, Bryanna Reuter, Horacio Magdaleno Jr, Gavin Reuter, Bailee (Zach) Jones, and Reis Reuter; her great-grandchildren, Luna Ashcraft, Garrison Heimbold, Abbiegale McBride, Harry, Simon and Pamela LaMothe.

In addition to her parents, Karen was preceded in death by her mother and father-in-law, Paul Reuter and Edna Paura.
