Ramona M. Bartz

July 27, 1940 – July 21, 2013

Ramona M. Bartz (nee Reichertz), 72, entered eternal spiritual happiness Sunday, July 21, 2013. She was honored along her way, and during her brief hospital stay, by a parade of friends and family. They grew to understand Mona’s desire to please each of them by harming none of them. In recent years Mona’s physical pain could be quite burdensome. In spite of that pain, Mona’s generosity in caring for the happiness of others remained the path to her own happiness.

Ramona was a licensed day care provider since 1985.

She was the beloved wife of Russ Bartz; loving mother of Wayne (Heidi) and Ed Bartz; proud grandma of Elyse, Cullen and Gavin Bartz; and dear sister of Cheryl Gruss, Shirley (Robert) Block, William (Lynn) Reichertz, the late Roger Reichertz, the late Grace Reichertz and the late Florence Schaefer. She is further survived by other relatives and friends.

Visitation will be from 4 p.m. until the 7 p.m. funeral service Thursday, July 25, at the Harder Funeral Home, 18700 W. Capitol Drive, Brookfield. Private interment will be at Delafield City Cemetery.
