Obituary of Marianne Reutter.

The funeral of Marianne Reutter was held at Christ Church, Eaton, on Tuesday 5th July 2022. 

Marianne Schneider was born on 7th June 1943 in Liestal near Basel in Switzerland.  She grew up in Frenkendorf and went to the local schools in Liestal.  Later, she trained as a secretary, specialising in foreign languages.  She could speak a number of different languages including German, English, French and Italian, and could record these languages in shorthand.

In order to improve her English, in 1965 and at the age of 21, she came to England, and in particular Macclesfield.  She lived with a family as an au pair and attended the local college.  It was here that she met Werner from Germany and they got engaged in December 1967. They were Married in May of 1968 and recently celebrated 54yrs of marriage.

They continued to live in Hurdsfield, Macclesfield near to where Werner worked.  Marianne worked at Geigy, who she had worked for in Switzerland.  She also worked at ICI in Nether Alderley.  This continued until 1972 when Glen arrived and this coincided with a move to their own house in Bollington.

In 1974, Lingl moved to the Radnor Estate in Congleton to allow expansion of the company.  Werner had worked for this company in both Germany and the UK.  The family followed the move and to the village of Eaton.  Susi completed the family in 1976. 

Marianne was a very active member in the community. She worked hard in the village committee that planned and raised funds to build raising the Eaton Millennium Park. She was also a long-standing member and the first Lady President of the Swiss Club in Manchester.

Marianne played the accordion and was a member of the North Staffs Accordion Club.  She was a happy member of the local W.I. and was also involved in a lace making group.

From a child Marianne had always liked goats, so she bred and showed Goats as a member of the Cheshire Dairy goats Society.

On Monday 20th June 2022, Marianne passed away after a brave fight with cancer. She was at home being comforted by her loving family.  She was excellently cared for by Home Instead, District Nurses, Macmillan Palliative Care Team and Marie Curie Night Sitters.
