Reka M. Slater

Reka M. Slater, 94, of Alexandria, Virginia, passed away peacefully March 15, 2022 at Brandywine Living in Alexandria, VA. Reka was born in Hardy County, West Virginia, daughter of the late Paul and Grace Mathias. She was preceded in death by her two beloved brothers, Herman (2008) and Mansfield Mathias (2014). Her love is carried on by her two daughters, Deborah Simonich and Cynthia Slater, and granddaughters, Stephanie and Melanie Simonich.

After moving to Washington D.C. during the final years of WWII to work for the Federal Communications Commission, Reka had a successful career in the Federal Government spanning more than 50 years. She enjoyed a well-earned retirement, traveling and spending time with her daughters and granddaughters. Reka was a loving and beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, who was deeply involved in her local community. She maintained a fierce and independent spirit throughout her long life, one that still buoys those she loved.
