Fritzi Jane Neddenriep Huntington of Glenbrook, Nevada, toe-danced into Heaven on March 10, 2011, 11 days after her 90th birthday. She was the only child of Fritz Claude Neddenriep and Vida Swain Neddenriep. She was preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, David Huntington 11/29/1910-11/7/1991 and her stepson, Todd Huntington.

Her memory remains in the hearts of her family - Claire Huntington McCloud and Kim McCloud, Casey and Nick Sage and their children Lucia and Drake, Ashley and Bryan Buchanan, Claudia Huntington and Marshall Miller, Prentice Huntington Miller and Reid Huntington Miller, and Linn Huntington.

In her younger life, Fritzi raised championship steers whom she named after her boyfriends, briefly attended the Pasadena Playhouse, won the doubles tennis championship of Nevada, and worked at the Red Cross during World War II. She was the first woman editor of the Carson City Daily Appeal now the Nevada Appeal.

Her life was filled with giving to others and to her family, which included a long list of pets including her last cat, Thunder. Among the many institutions which she loved and supported were Kappa Alpha Theta, the Assistance League of Southern California, the Tahoe Rim Trail founding board member, and the Tahoe Baikal Institute. Her love of Lake Tahoe was profound, and evident to all who knew her. She was recognized with the Distinguished Nevadan award, the Friends of The Lake Award, and the Dwight Steele Award. She was one of the first board members of the Lake Tahoe Area Council, which preceded the TRPA; served on the Glenbrook homeowners board; and was involved for many years with The League to Save Lake Tahoe, including serving as President from 1984-86 and again from 1987-88.

Fritzi had many friends, and those of you who knew her well also know how much she valued your calls, cards and friendship over the years. She passed into the next life as she lived the last one - without complaint; with dignity, kindness to others and grace; and dreaming of a beautiful Lake Tahoe sunset.

In lieu of flowers, she would be grateful for any contributions made in her name to the League to Save Lake Tahoe, 2608 Lake Tahoe Blvd, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150, or the Tahoe Rim Trail, 948 Incline Way, Incline Village, NV 89451.
