Peitz, Madelene H. (nee Smith), fortified with the sacraments of Holy Mother Church. Beloved wife of 70 years to Robert Peitz; cherished daughter of the late Columbus and Alice Smith; devoted mother of Richard Peitz and Cindy Peitz; loving grandmother of Heidi, Kimberly (Luke), Renee, and James (Kelly); precious great-grandmother of three; dear sister of both living and deceased siblings of the Smith family.
Madelene worked at a Famous Barr that was later named Macy's as a makeup artist for 19 years. She met her husband Bob of 70 years while working at a factory in 1950. They enjoyed going to concerts together, listening to music, and traveling to places like Europe, England, Alaska, and many others. Their favorite vacation destinations were Florida and Gulf Shores. Madelene was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Madelene's name to Alzheimer’s Association, COPD Foundation, or the American Kidney Fund.
