Mary Alice Latz

Mary Alice Latz, 83, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, died peacefully surrounded by family Wednesday, January 9, 2019, at her home in Presque Isle, Michigan.

Mary was born August 16, 1935, daughter of Harold Elmer Reiter and Alice Marie Reiter. She was raised in Toledo, Ohio, graduating from Scott High School. She attended University of Toledo where she met the love of her life, Gilbert James Latz. They married in 1955 and celebrated their 49th anniversary prior to his death in 2003.

While they raised four children, Gil's career with Sears required multiple Mid-West transfers landing them in Toledo, Ohio, where they lived for 28 years. Gil and Mary had a passion for travel exploring multiple continents during their life together and voyaging their boat on all of the Great Lakes. Mary and Gil completed their dream trip cruising from the Great Lakes down the Mississippi and its waterways to the Gulf of Mexico. They purchased their retirement home in Presque Isle, Michigan in 2000.

Over her life Mary worked for the airlines, Sears, Consumer Credit Counseling of Northwest Ohio and she was a licensed Ohio Real Estate Agent.

Mary is survived by her children, Karen (Randy) Dixon, Jeff Latz, Mike (Lisa) Latz, Lyn (Curt Owens) Ziegelhofer; her brother, Scott (Patricia) Reiter; grandchildren, Lucas (Bethany Halasz) Dixon, Roger (Claire) Dixon, Robert Dixon, Megan Latz, Craig (Stephanie) Latz, Kori Latz, Kris (Amanda) Latz, Jeremy Latz, Emily Hoffman and Dan Ziegelhofer, and 9 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harold and Alice; her husband, Gil; daughter in-law, Bonnie Latz, and grand-daughter, Laura Ziegelhofer.

A celebration of Mary's life will be scheduled in the future.

The family would like to thank the Hospice of Alpen Michigan for their help and care for Mary during the lasts weeks of her life. Arrangements are in care of the Beck Funeral Home. Online condolences may be addressed through www.beckfuneralhome.org
