MaryLou Reinitz

MaryLou Reinitz, 70, of Tamarack Lane entered peacefully into the arms of her Savior on Sunday February 24, 2019 at Samaritan Hospital in Troy.  She was born on August 18, 1948 and was the daughter of the late Gerald and Lois Ray Smith.  MaryLou was a graduate of Shenendehowa High School and was the beloved wife of Richard E. Reinitz, whom she married on Nov. 16, 1995.  She retired from Fleet Bank in Glenville where she had been a branch manager and earlier she had worked for the Troy Savings Bank.  She so loved her family, her dogs Winston, Chloe and Tilly.  She took great solitude in music and enjoyed staying connected with family and friends through Facebook.   Knowing that she is in the face of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a great comfort to her family.


In addition to her husband Richard, MaryLou is the devoted mother of Tracey (Stephen) Abbott of Hadley, NY and Marcia Cognetta of Halfmoon, NY; sister of Connie (Peter) Salvatore of Houston, TX and the late Gerald Smith; cherished grandmother of Matthew Belden, Sarah Abbott and Sophia Cognetta; also survived by several nieces and nephews.
