Departed on September 27, 2021 in Melbourne, Florida
Lotte Waybright, 90, of Melbourne, Florida passed away at her home on September 27, 2021. Lotte was born July 26, 1931 in Augsburg, Germany to Philipp and Elsa Reitmayr. Growing up as a young girl in Germany during WW2 was difficult but made her strong. She met her husband, an American soldier, after the war and at the age of 22 left her homeland and family to live in the United States. She taught herself English and was proud to become an American citizen. Moving around as a military wife, she held many jobs but her main focus was that of a homemaker. Anyone who knew her would not only remember her kind and generous soul but her fabulous cooking.
In addition to her parents, Lotte was preceded in death by her daughter Karen Waybright, her husband Clyde of 62 years, brother Gustl Reitmayr and sister Erna Wuzik.
She is survived by her daughter Ruth Copper (Larry) of Melbourne FL; four grandchildren, Lisa Marshall, Laura Miloshoff, Eric Householder and Stacy Householder; eight great-grandchildren, Austin, Colton and Jenna Marshall, Lyla and Jude Miloshoff, Evelyn and Colin Householder, Scarlettmae Darby; her sister Karin Chapman (Dave) of Howell Michigan; along with many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Hospice of Health First or the Humane Society of South Brevard.
