Gina T. Rieck

ReGina T. Rieck, age 82, of Wabasha, formerly of Alma, passed away on Tuesday April 12, 2016 at St. Elizabeth Health Care Center in Wabasha. Gina was born on August 31, 1933 a daughter of the late Joseph and Mary Joephine (Prissel) Brantner. On October 14, 1981, Gina was united in marriage Dale Rieck at St. John Lutheran Church in Alma. Together, they brought two families together and raised them as one. Gina spent her early days nurturing her children at home. Afterwards, Gina was a longtime employee of Safeway Foods of Durand, a career that spanned around 25 years. She was a lady of many talents, of which were her beautiful floral and vegetable gardens and abilities of canning her vegetables for her family. Gina also enjoyed sewing and quilting. Gina always put her family first. She will be remembered for making every holiday about it’s true meaning…the bringing together of family. Easter holiday was one of Gina’s most favorite of holiday’s which was evident by her special Easter egg hunt around her home with each egg personalized for all her family. Her Christmas Village was fascinating. She spent many hours decorating it and then let the children play in it saying “This is who it’s for, the kids.” Although we will mourn the loss of truly the best mom, grandma, great grandma and now greatgreat grandma one could ever ask for, we now have the most special memories of this wonderful lady forever in our hearts. Gina will be sadly missed by her husband of the past 34 years, Dale, of Alma; her children, Marla Jo McMahon, Rick McMahon, Daniel McMahon, Bonnie (Paul) Schultz, Sue (Tom) Henthorn and Marvin (his special love, Lana) Rieck; 23 grandchildren; 45 great grandchildren; 3 greatgreat grandchildren; sisters, JoAnn Rieck and Rosetta (John) Nelson; brother, Charles (Janet) Brantner; also by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and numerous friends. Besides Gina’s parents, she was preceded in death by a son, Rob Rieck and two sisters, Magdalene Bauer and Lorraine Smith and two grandaughters, Gina Kay Bechel and Cassie Elizabeth McMahon (Affolter) Funeral services will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 2:00 PM at the Talbot Family Funeral Home, Alma Chapel with Tom Elliot officiating.
