March 1, 1962 - June 5, 2014

MaryJo Reisner, 52, of Oelwein passed away on Thursday June 5, 2014 at Mercy Hospital in Oelwein.  Visitation will be from 3:00-7:00 PM on Monday June 9, 2014 at the Geilenfeld Funeral Home.  A Scripture Service will then follow the visitation at 7:00 PM.  Inurnment will be in Woodlawn Cemetery at a later date.

MaryJo Louise Reisner was born on March 1, 1962 in Oelwein, Iowa the daughter of Raphael and Lydia (Decker) Schuler.  She grew up in the Oelwein area.  She married William Reisner, Jr. in 1978 at the family’s home in Oelwein. They later divorced.

MaryJo had worked for the Oelwein Daily Register and at Mercy Hospital in Environmental Services; she also kept her home spotless. MaryJo was a very giving person, willing to help anybody in need.  She also was a little shy with a beautiful laugh that made people comfortable around her.  Later in life she was into using her computer and loved playing games on it. She also enjoyed playing pool.  She enjoyed life and her family, she will be dearly missed.  MaryJo gave as generously in death, as she did in life by being a donor through the Iowa Donor Network.

MaryJo is survived by her two sons: Sean Reisner and Cody Reisner of Oelwein; her four grandchildren: Zoey, Lanni, William and Carter; her brothers: Ray (Mary) Schuler and Donald Schuler of Oelwein; her sister Doralee (Carl) Schwake of Oelwein and her special friend Steve Walker of Oelwein. She was preceded in death by her parents and two children in infancy: Destiny Marie and Seth Allan.
