Regina Mae WalzApril 26, 1923 ~ June 1, 2017 (age 94)
Regina Mae Walz, 94, formerly of Hawesville, died June 1st 2017 at Carmel Home. The second child of Otto G. and Ida May Brown Walz, she was born in Douglas, WY, April 26th, 1923. When her parents returned to Kentucky, Regina attended Saint Rose of Lima Elementary School, Cloverport, KY and Mount St. Joseph Academy, Maple Mount, KY. After graduation, Regina was employed at KenRad in Owensboro, and then transferred to GE in Tell City, IN, as recommended by her supervisor. During those 45 years of service, she was very close to being acclaimed, an “indispensable” instructor.
In their later years, Regina was a primary care giver for her parents and two aunts and uncles in the Hawesville area. A faithful member of Immaculate Conception Church, Hawesville and a faithful member of the legion of Mary, Regina gave countless hours to keeping church records and visiting the sick. Events that brought joy to Regina were family gatherings, traveling, UK basketball games, her 300 strike bowling game, sharing her beautiful roses and provoking a laugh with the humorous stories she collected to share with others.
Regina was preceded in death by her parents, an elder sister, Martha Gammon, 2 infant nephews, an adult nephew and niece, and 2 brother-in-laws.
Left to cherish her memory, are two sisters, Dorothy Walz Jackson and Sister Joan Walz, O.S.U., Maple Mount, KY; a brother, George (Nancy) Walz of Hardinsburg, eleven nieces and nephews and many great and great-great nieces and nephews and cousins.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday June 5, 2017 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Hawesville with burial following in Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
