Neomie Lillian (Moen) Reishus was born on February 26, 1923 in Kidder, South Dakota to Elmer and Carrie Moen. She had four siblings, Ethel (who died in infancy), Edna, Joe, and Lindy. After attending school in Kidder and teacher's college in Aberdeen, she returned to Kidder to teach in the country school for five years. Following WWII, Neomie moved to Minneapolis, where she met and married Irving Reishus. They became proud parents to four children, Linda, Colleen, Terry, and Rick. In 1960 they bought a home in Bloomington, where Neomie lived for the rest of her life. Neomie enjoyed her job as a school secretary in the Bloomington Public Schools for 22 years. She was also an active member of Woodlake Church. She enjoyed traveling with church groups and family, playing bridge, knitting, and watching Jeopardy and the Minnesota Twins. Above all, she loved her family. She delighted in gathering with her siblings, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. After 98 joy-filled years, she passed into eternal life on October 24, 2021.

    What a wonderful life Neomi had and made for herself. She was so generous and loving and kind to all. We knew her for the many years she served as the Richfield Meals on Wheels driver coordinator for Woodlake Lutheran Church; she was also part of our Richfield Meals on Wheels Board. I especially remember one of the Board Meetings held at Woodlake Lutheran; she made and served an incredible dessert! (I wish I could remember what it was.) I am sorry for your loss; I hope there is consolation in knowing how much she loved life and each one of you.
