Lanis Rose Reich, age 74, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 1, 2021 at Nathan Adelson Hospice in Las Vegas, Nevada, with family by her side. She was born on September 23, 1946, in Sacramento California and was one of 5 siblings.
While living in Fairbanks Alaska, Lanis married and had two children by the time she was 19 – just a few months before her husband, Dan Reich, went into the Vietnam war.
This time in Alaska may explain why, for the rest of her life, she migrated only to hotter climates, having lived in Las Vegas, Nevada; Amarillo, Texas; Maui, Hawaii; Atlanta, Georgia, and back to Las Vegas again. She also loved visiting her son and his family in Sydney, Australia.
Lanis will be remembered as a kind and gentle soul – always trusting and seeing the goodness in people. She was a loving mother who made many personal sacrifices in raising her two children. And although she lived a life of humble means, she appreciated the finer things in life and always loved seeing the lifestyles of the rich and famous.
Lanis is survived by her daughter, Terri Frederick of Las Vegas, Nevada; her son, Tom & wife Ella Reich of Sydney Australia; her father, Lee Forvour of Ocean Shores, Washington; her brother Randy & wife Sharon Johnson of Amarillo Texas; her brother Barry & wife Carol Forvour of Ocean Shores, Washington; and her three grandchildren – Austin, Savannah, and Hunter Reich of Sydney, Australia.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Louise Forvour of Ocean Shores, Washington; her two sisters Glenda Hubbard & Jerry Beaumariage of Fairbanks, Alaska; and her grandson Brandon Keller of Atlanta, Georgia.
May God Rest her beautiful soul.
