Dorothy Mae Reeg
Dorothy Mae Reeg, 83, of Dubuque, formerly of Bellevue, passed away Monday morning, Oct. 23, 2017, at University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics.

A funeral service was held Thursday, Oct. 26, at Church of the Resurrection, 4300 Asbury Road, Dubuque. Burial was in Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery in Bellevue.

Dorothy was born Oct. 20, 1934, in Cedar Rapids, the daughter of Paul and Roseanne Stanisha Beckley. She married Edwin Reeg on June 22, 1953, at Saint Mary's Church in Dubuque.

She worked at the Pillow Factory and Ensign Coil Co. in Bellevue.

She was active in her church, and her faith in God was very important to her.

Dorothy loved to travel with Ed throughout their lifetime. She loved her family, loved visits from grandchildren, and would do any sewing and mending of clothes when needed by the family. She was a very good baker of breads, pies, and Christmas cookies. She loved to work outside in her flower garden, and took pride in keeping a tidy yard.

She is survived by six children Shirley (Gary) Deppe, of DeWitt, Danny Reeg of Key West, Ronnie Reeg, of Bellevue, Terry (Sue) Reeg, of Dubuque, Rick (Emily) Reeg of Bellevue, and Amy Livermore of Bellevue; 15 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; two brothers, Robert Paul Jr. (Carol), and George Beckley; and four sisters Joann (Ray) Schumacher, Mary Ellen (Tom) Timmermann O'Brien, Janet (Bob) Graff, and Jean Lemm.

She was preceded in death by her husband Ed; daughter-in-law Nancy Reeg; her parents; and brother Fr. Clarence Beckley.
