Lotte Karin Wack (Reichel – Buchwald), went home to our Lord's care December 12th. She was doing the things she loved most, cooking and shopping, when she stubbornly met her end at the local Food Town Market. She is a saved Christian believer who was thinking about her husband, Paul, and her family to the very end. According to her wishes she has been cremated and will be returned to the sea where she wanted to travel the world eventually returning to Germany.
She is preceded in death by her father Herman Heinrich Riechel, her mother Christine Josephine Antonie Riechel (Ohlrogge), her first Husband Richard Carl Buchwald, and her sister Ursula Kahle (Riechel). She is survived by her husband Paul Wack; her sons: William Buchwald, Chris and Cathy Buchwald, Michael Buchwald, and Robert Buchwald, her grandchildren Ethan Buchwald, Isabel Buchwald, Dawson Buchwald, and Ingrid Buchwald; by Paul’s children Chuck and Debbie Wack, Paul Wack, Evelyn Wack, and Tamara Wack, by their grandchildren: Zackery Wack, Molly Wack, Griffin Wack, Luke Wack, Alexandra Wack, and Elliot Wack and great grandchild Hunter Wack; her German family; Andreas & Martina Kahle and their sons Dominik Kahle and Andy Kahle; Steffi and Klaus Meyer and their daughters Saskia Meyer and Svenja Meyer.
Born in Hamburg Germany she grew up as a little girl during World War II and she used the harsh experience of war to always find the bright side of life such that her happy personality radiated to everyone. In 1960 she immigrated to Ohio with her first husband and raised a family in Richfield, Ohio. In 1986 while running her restaurant, she married the love of her life Paul and they lived many happy years in Melbourne, Florida, Spring, Texas, and on the interstate highways as Paul ran his trucking business, impressing everyone she met through life with her sweet remarks and good cooking.
