Jane Beatrice Ries (nee Leiser) left this world to join her husband of 73 years, Dr. George E. Ries, in Heaven on January 20, 2021. Sadly, she tested positive for COVID on New Year's Day, one day before she was to be vaccinated, and ultimately succumbed to the virus.

Jane was born at her parents' home above the family bakery in west Philadelphia on July 27, 1926. She graduated from West Philadelphia High School in 1944, at which time she was presented the coveted "Gift of Roses." After high school she went to Hahnemann Hospital where she trained to be a medical technician, a profession of which she was very proud.

She met the love of her life on the beach in Ocean City, New Jersey; and in April, 1947, she married Captain Ries of the U.S. Army Dental Corps. They made their first home at the Oakland Army Base in California.

When Dr. Ries' service concluded, they moved back east where they lived in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia, Lafayette Hill, PA, Ocean City, NJ, Linwood, NJ, and ultimately senior living facilities in suburban Philadelphia.

Jane was a woman with boundless energy and creativity. She was a super Mom and loving grandmother, volunteer, gourmet cook, amazing seamstress, and legendary party hostess. She and George were avid travelers and cruisers. They visited most states in the USA (her favorite being Hawaii) and at least 25 foreign countries.

Jane is survived by her children, Geoffrey K. Ries (Suzanne) of Spring House, PA; Donna Foster (Jim) of Athens, GA and Park City, UT; Dr. Barry C. Ries of Tierra Verde, FL; Dwight P. Ries of Oceanside, CA; and Melissa Juliano (Michael) of Linwood, NJ. She was blessed with ten grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren. Jane was preceded in death by her siblings Dr. Frederick C. Leiser,Jr. (Peggy) of Polk City, FL and Barbara Kudrna (Dick) of Bozeman, MT.

Dr. and Mrs. Ries' ashes will be mixed and scattered in their "Happy Places" of Ocean City, NJ and Kona, HI. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a joint celebration of their lives will be held at a later date and will be publicized on this website.

Remembrances to the Artman COVID Relief Fund which benefits the hero staff at Artman Lutheran Home, 250 Bethlehem Pike, Ambler, PA 19002, or https://www.artmanhome.org/giving would be appreciated by the family.
