Marieluise Redis

Marieluise Redis Deceased February 17, 2020 Marieluise ‘Marlies’ Redis went home peacefully to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus on February 17, 2020 at the age of 82. Marlies was born to Gottlob and Maria Trayser in April of 1937 in Darmstadt, Germany. She is survived by her three younger brothers: Klaus-Dieter, Hans-Joachim, and Winfried Trayser and their families. At 16 she met her husband, Werner Redis while taking dance classes. They continued a long distance relationship after he moved to the United States and joined the army. They were married in Germany in 1958, then moved to New York City and went on to have three daughters. The family moved back to Germany for several years before returning to the United States in 1972. They lived in Virginia for two years before settling in Texas until they retired to Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. Due to health issues they moved back to Texas to be closer to their daughters and their families. Marlies’s chosen occupation in Germany was a Kindergarten teacher. Before her retirement in the United States, she worked at several companies including Safeway, Sears, Blue Bonnet Bakery, and the James Robison Ministries. Since Marlies loved to cook and bake, it brought her great joy to host dinner parties for her family and many friends. She prepared some of her favorite German dishes and desserts including her delicious original cheesecakes. Being reared by Christian parents in the Lutheran Church gave her a foundation of Biblical principles. However, her relationship with Jesus didn’t begin until she received Him personally as her Lord and Savior at a Brush Arbor Revival at Cana Baptist Church. Her passion for Jesus continued to grow as she diligently studied His Word. Convinced of His love for her and everyone else inspired her to spread His love through teaching Sunday School and opening their home for Bible studies and prayer meetings. She touched many lives by taking every opportunity to selflessly minister to people in various ways. When the ladies of her church wanted to tend to families by preparing dinners for them, she gladly contributed her infamous cheesecakes as the dessert. In 1987, Marlies was diagnosed with a brain tumor causing her to face one of the greatest crisis of her life. She was informed that if she survived the surgery, she had a 50% chance of being paralyzed. In addition, since the tumor was wrapped around the optic nerve, she faced the probability of being blind within 6 month after the surgery. Her unwavering faith in the providence of her Lord enabled her to face this challenge with His divine courage and absolute peace in His Sovereignty! She was absolutely certain that whatever the future held for her, the Lord would faithfully keep His promise in Romans 8:31-39: “I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell …
