Born Sept. 22, 1925, in the Welsh Mountains, she was the daughter of the late Roy and Eva (Seitz) Witman.

Reba was a member of Calvary Church, Lancaster. Most important to her was her relationship with her Lord and Savior. She was a fervent prayer warrior who prayed for everyone she knew. Her prayer lists were extensive. Reba was an example of a biblical helpmate to her husband, Charles, who preceded her to Heaven in 2011. She loved to cook and bake. She could make the most delicious meals and desserts and gifted many of her creations to family and friends.

She was also preceded in death by two sisters: Helen Styer, Hazel Weaver; a brother: Rodney Witman; and infant brother: Merle.

The family would like to dearly thank Jeanne Batturs Weaver for the loving care she gave mom while she was still living at home. We will always love you. We would like to also thank the first floor caregivers at Mount Hope Nazarene who showed God’s love to Mom. We will always be grateful.
