Lila Reuter

Lila Reuter Memorial Nursing Scholarship

Lila Reuter, a lifelong AZ resident, began her married life in Phoenix with husband Frank, post WWII. She was a homemaker, as was common for her generation, raising their three sons while Frank ran the family business. When her youngest son entered high school, Lila pursued her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse. She completed her LPN degree through classes at GCC and Phoenix College in the early 1970s. Lila worked at Good Samaritan Hospital and was a dedicated volunteer as well for the Crisis Nursery, St. Mary’s Food Bank, and the migrant ministry at her church. Lila passed from this life in 2007. This scholarship is dedicated to her love of nursing and service to her community.
