Peacefully on Friday January 13, 2023, surrounded by her children, Reeva Lynne Feuer (nee Herstein) passed away at the age of 74.
Reeva was predeceased by her father Harvey Herstein (1996), her mother Rose Herstein (2010) and her husband Henry Feuer (2010). She will be sadly missed by her children Jeremy (Tiffany), Joshua (Chrissy), Jessica (Chad), her beloved grandchildren Nomi, Aaron, Hazel and Henry, her brother and sister-in-law Larry and Norma Herstein, her brothers-in-law Morris Feuer and Charles Feuer and sister-in-law Sharon Feuer. Reeva will also be missed by her nieces and nephews in the Feuer/Herstein families, and so many cousins and friends from Portland to Petach Tikvah.
Reeva was born July 10, 1948 the second of two children to Rose and Harvey Herstein and was raised in the North End of Winnipeg. She attended I.L. Peretz Folk School, Jefferson Junior High and Garden City Collegiate. She forged friendships with her girlfriends from her days on Rupertsland Avenue which lasted a lifetime. She obtained her teaching certificate from the University of Manitoba and worked in early childhood education in Waskada, Manitoba and in Winnipeg until her children were born. Once her children were all in school, Reeva went back to work helping to manage several dental practices in Winnipeg. Never one to sit idly by, after moving to Las Vegas in 2000, she continued to work full-time ultimately retiring from the accounting department at MGM Resorts International in 2015.
Reeva was fortunate to experience many adventures with her beloved husband Henry, from running a hotel in Waskada, Manitoba in the late 1960’s to moving with Henry to Las Vegas where they spent many days entertaining family and friends visiting from all over the U.S. and Canada. A trip to Israel in 2015 was a lifetime highlight as she got the opportunity to spend time with her dear cousins with whom she had corresponded her entire life. Reeva’s favourite days however were reserved for her grandchildren, her legacy. She was immensely proud of their accomplishments and looked so forward to visits to Winnipeg and Long Island, New York to see them.
Funeral services were held on Sunday January 29, 2023 at Congregation Etz Chayim. The pallbearers were Jeremy Feuer, Joshua Feuer, Jessica Stone, Nomi Feuer, Aaron Feuer and Lesley Herstein.
The Feuer family is forever grateful for the compassion and care shown by the doctors and staff at the Nathan Adelson Hospice in Las Vegas, Nevada . In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made in Reeva’s memory to the Nathan Adelson Hospice at www.nah.org. .
