She is also survived by her mother, Suzanne, sister Heidi Gonzalez (Margarito), nieces and nephews, Thalia, Victoria, Mateo, and Ezekiel Gonzalez, her fiancé Jerry Schwister, children Jacob Schwister and Roxanne Taylor, cousins, aunts, uncles, and many friends. Reva was a beautiful, free spirited person who was always fun to be around. She was an artist and loved swimming, fishing, music, and being with her family and friends. God Bless Gabriel and Alyssa Krueger for adopting and loving her son Micah. Her other children were blessed to have their Aunt Heidi do so many motherly things for them and will continue to raise them. Reva was preceded in death by her father.
