I'd like to send my condolences to the family. Mary sounds like she was a lovely woman. Acts 24:15 tells us one of the beautiful promises made by Jehovah God: those who have died will be resurrected. This scripture always comforts me, and I hope it will bring you comfort too. May God give you the strength you need to cope during this difficult time.

Cathy, My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I know you were very close to your Mother and I hope your memories comfort you at this time and in the future.

Laurie Cameron, Atlanta, GA

Cathy, I feel bad that we haven't been in touch now for a good long while. So Sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. Know that my prayers are with you at this time.

Jeni Ellis-Riggs, Savannah, Ga.

Cathy, So sad to hear about the loss of your dear mom whom I remember so fondly. May the Source of peace send peace to the Reiser family and may your mom’s memory always and forever be for a blessing. Hope you are otherwise well. ~Greg Odrezin

Mary Murphy Reiser, age 93, died on November 21, 2017 at home after an extended illness.

A native of Savannah, Georgia, she was born May 19, 1924, and graduated from Savannah High School, Armstrong Junior College and Brenau University.  She was a life-long member of The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Ascension, where she sang in the choir, taught Sunday School, was past chairman of the History Committee and was past leader of her women’s missionary group.  She taught at Anderson Street School and later at Calvary Baptist Day School.  She was past president of the Parkside Garden Club.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles L. and Mildred Nungezer Murphy and her husband, John Walton Reiser.  She is survived by her children, Cathy Reiser Fox (Fred), Mary Ann Reiser Dudley, and Michael Reiser (Donna); grandchildren Randy Kelley (Lisa), Catie Dudley Hill (Casey), Chip Dudley, Kelly Reiser Broad (Brian), and Casey Reiser; and three great-grandchildren John Michael Dudley, Josiah Kelley, and Evelyn Hill.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, November 24, 2017 at Fox and Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.  A graveside service will be held on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. in the Greenwich Section of Bonaventure Cemetery.

Honorary pallbearers are Fred Fox, Randy Kelley, Chip Dudley, Casey Hill, Lee Fowler and Frederick Feus, Jr.

The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to Sandra Cooke for her years of friendship and daily caregiving and to all personnel with Hospice Savannah.  The family requests that remembrances be made to The Ronald McDonald House of the Coastal Empire (rmhccoastalempire.org) or The Independence Fund (independence fund.org) that provides all terrain mobility chairs for veterans.
