Judge Fred W. Reither to celebrate 90th birthday PDF Print E-mail

The family of Judge Fred W. Reither is pleased to celebrate his 90th birthday.
He was born April 5 in Beardstown, the youngest of five sons to Lydia and Fred G. Reither of Beardstown.
He enjoys a French toast breakfast at the Depot Diner in Virginia every morning and thinks the world of all of the helpful staff there, especially Kelly Bayles Cagle. He is particularly grateful for how they all look out for him.
He misses going to church every Sunday at St John’s Lutheran Church in Beardstown, where he grew up attending. However, he is thankful the pastor comes to see him and brings him communion regularly.
He is thankful for and loves his grandchildren, Steve and Leah Reither and is fond of his stepgrandson, Jacob House. He appreciates regular visits from his daughter Shelley and her spouse Liz, and is proud of his son Trey.
He is glad his older brother Clarence and his wife Vera are still living and enjoys visits with them.
