Reva Didion, age 82, passed away on Tuesday, December 5, 2023 after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s. She is now at home, with Jesus Christ.
On April 21, 1941, Reva was born to her parents, Joseph and Zepha.
Reva always boasted of her amazing childhood, saying how incredible her parents were. She used to tell stories of her beloved rescue dog, Susie. She was always most proud of her older brother, Jack, who she admired greatly.
Reva married her husband, Donald, on July 13, 1963. Almost a year to the date later, they began their family with the birth of their daughter, Vicki. Her sons, Charles and Robert soon followed, and their family was complete.
As time went on, Reva became a very proud grandmother of seven grandchildren. She never missed a sporting event, or dance recital. She constantly called to check on her grandkids, always wanting updates on their lives. She was the loudest cheerleader in the stands. All could hear her laugh and see her smile, and everyone would say how contagious her joy for life was.
Reva encompassed loyalty, devoting her entire career to Northwest Tri County Intermediate.
Anyone who knew Reva knew how generous she was. Her acts of service towards her family, community and church never went unnoticed. She was a devoted Christian, and was incredibly dedicated to her church (First Baptist Church). She consistently volunteered, and was always a giver, never asking for anything in return.
Reva’s zeal for life could be seen through her many world travels. She was blessed with incredible friends that she was able to travel the world with. Whether it was riding camels in the desert or laying on a cruise ship in the Caribbean, Reva and her wonderful friends experienced the beauties of the world together.
Reva was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph Mitchell and Zepha Snapp Mitchell; her brother, Jack Heymann, and her husband, Donald Didion.
Reva is survived by her children, Vicki (Glenn) Pletz, Charles (Rose) Didion, Robert (Amy) Didion; and her seven grandchildren, Michael Didion, Connor Pletz, Josh Didion, Taylor (Kyle) Trinch, Shaine Pletz, Hailey Didion and Reese Didion.
Reva’s memory will live on forever. Her kindness toward others was authentic, and she is an inspiration of selflessness. Her contagious laugh will never be forgotten, and she is loved greatly. She was a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She will be deeply missed. Reva always spoke about taking one last trip, and that was to Heaven. We take comfort in knowing she has reached her destination.
