Lore Rosa Neidhardt

February 14, 1928October 2, 2021

Lore Rosa Neidhardt, wife, mom, and beloved Oma, died suddenly on October 2, 2021 at age 93. Lore is survived by her daughter, Elke Neidhardt DeFelice (Phil), son, Guenter Neidhardt, grandkids, Alyssa (Mark), Leanna (Peter), Krista, Ingrid, Heidi, along with great grandkids, Lucas, Gavin, and Carter. She is welcomed into heaven by her husband Heinz, daughter Renate Neidhardt Green and mother Maria Preuninger.

Born in Nurtingen, Germany, she followed her husband to America in 1967 for a better life. Known as Oma to so many, she was an avid gardener, reader, great cook, and the “card lady” at St. Peters Lutheran Church which was her second family. Family was most important to Lore and she was the epitome of grace and kindness and had a smile for everyone she came across.

A funeral service is scheduled for October 9, 2021 at 11:00AM, at St. Peters Lutheran Church, 11423 Chicago Road, Warren, Michigan 48093.

In lieu of flowers, a donation is appreciated to one of Lore’s many charities: the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, St. Jude’s Children Hospital, Michigan Vets and The Salvation Army.

The world lost a great woman. Oma was the most gracious lady, she handled life in ups in downs in a way not often seen in present times. Her fortitude and courage I will never forget. I owe her more than anyone will ever know because she was so generous with everything she had, especially her love.
My adult children still hang tight to the afghans she made for them.

Elke, so very sad to hear of your mom's passing. I only saw her a few times....usually when you drove me to/from Ferris, but I remember your mom always being so gracious and kind to me and having a quick smile. Hugs and prayers for you all.

Upon meeting Mrs. Neidhardt I just fell in love. She sparkled with such brightness, grace and love. When you met her, her eyes would light up as if you were the best part of her day. One just felt loved being in her presence.

On behalf of the Capuchin brothers I offer my deepest sympathies on the passing of Lore. It is truly humbling to receive memorial donations in honor of her memory. Please be assured of the brother's prayers for the entire Neidhardt family during this great time of grief.
