Marie Louise Reinauer Summers

On Wednesday, January 27, 2021, Marie Louise Reinauer Summers took her journey home at the age of 98 years and 10 months. Weezie was born on April 14, 1922, to Clara Mae Rutherford Reinauer and Fred Robert Reinauer. She had two younger brothers, Fred Robert Jr. and Franklin. She attended OSU, Oklahoma A & M at the time, and was a cheerleader. She married Jack Garland Summers and had three children, Rosemarie, Laura Jane and Jack Garland Jr. Her husband Jack passed away which left her to raise her children alone. She had many names besides Weezie, she was Mom/Mama/MomMom/Aveze/Grandma and Hau'olimau, which is Hawaiian for always happy, but most folks just called her Mom because that's what she was to everyone! She was always laughing and happy and always checking in on her ever growing circle of friends and family and trying to keep them together! So many were drawn to her openness and accepting spirit, making them feel loved and as important as family, which inevitably, they became! She was very adventurous and ready to try anything! You might find her flying an open cockpit biplane or playing a round of golf in the Philippine Islands! Her real passion was dancing! Dancing of all kinds! She was a very accomplished Ballroom dancer and won many competitions! Her dancing in the ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria in NYC made the centerfold of Life Magazine! She also loved ballet and Hawaiian Hula which she continued until her end of life! She was very funny and had a knack of getting into 'good' trouble which made many hilarious stories, some quite legendary, another reason folks liked to hang out with her! She leaves a huge void!!!!Weezie was preceded in death by her parents, 2 brothers, husband and son. She is survived by her two daughters, five grandchildren, Justin Ward, Adriane Freeman, Shorrie Ward, Summer Wood and Jay Thomas; and eight great grandchildren, Lauren Strickland, Austin Wood, Hudson Wood, Sofi Ward, Hailey Freeman, Georgia Wood, Sadie Ward and Grayson Ward.An Evening Prayer Service will be held Tuesday, February 2, 2021, at 7 p.m. at Smith & Kernke N.
