Pat Reuter

September 19, 1939 ~ July 9, 2022 (age 82)


NEW CASTLE- Patsy “Pat” A. Reuter of New Castle, Indiana, passed away at her home on July 9th, 2022, at the age of 82, after a long battle with Emphysema. Pat was born September 19th, 1939, in New Castle. She attended New Castle Chrysler High School and went on to become a QMS (Qualified Medication Aide). She worked at several of the local nursing homes in New Castle. Pat later retired from Grede Foundry where she was the nurse on second shift for many years. Pat really enjoyed taking care of the guys in the foundry and having them tease and prank her. During the holidays she enjoyed making them fudge and banana bread. Pat was the oldest of six children of the late Edna (Denney) and Russell Billings.

Pat was preceded in death by a son, Timothy Reuter; two sisters, Nancy Jo Modlin, and Carolyn Billings; brother, Paul “Bo” Billings.

Survivors include a brother, Robert Billings; sister, Theresa Mason (husband Randy); two children, son, Allen Reuter, and daughter, Monica (Reuter) Peters (partner Paul); four granddaughters, Brandy Milstead (husband Danny), Dusti Reuter, Krysti Seals (husband Brandon), Laci Edwards (husband Dale); two grandsons, Matthew Shafer, and Jacob Peters (partner John); her beloved puppy, COCO; two sisters-in-law, Norma Jean Reuter, and Tammy Cline (husband Rick); ex-husband, Ronald Reuter; five great grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews.

Pat enjoyed her home and took great pride in fixing it up and keeping it clean(spotless). She was an avid gardener and had an amazing green thumb and the most beautiful yard. When Pat wasn't working in her yard, she could be found enjoying a good book and cup of coffee. She loved a good murder mystery and was a connoisseur of anything chocolate. If you own stock in Nestle or Hershey, you should sell them quick, now that she has passed there will no longer be an issue with supply and demand. Pat was small in stature but was a force to be reckoned with. She would go nose to nose with anyone who got in her way, no matter the size. Those who knew Pat the best, knew she had a hard exterior but soft inside. She was not a morning person and could out cuss a sailor, but if you got to really know her, she would do anything for you. Pat was a firm believer of discipline in her home and her children had the knots on their heads to prove it. Pat wanted to leave some advice to everyone, first and foremost, 1) do not ever smoke. Cigarettes are a hard addiction to overcome, and she did, but too late in life to save her, 2) Work hard and save your money. She always said, "Hard work never hurt anyone".

A celebration of life service will be held on a later date. Marshall & Erlewein Funeral Home, Dublin has been entrusted with Pat's cremation services.
