Jeune Reinhold: 15 Dec 1922 – 29 Oct 2014
Whata life! From nursing through WWII inEngland and raising four children in the US after her husband was taken from her far too soon, to beating cancer at 87 and skydiving to celebrate, Jeune met life’s challenges with determination and grace.
Whether family, friends, or patients, we were all touched by her kindness, generosity and positivity and loved her dearly for them. Let us always remember the things she loved best–her family and friends,the outdoors, especially the mountains and most especially Pingree Park, literature and theater, tennis and CSU women’s basketball, all creatures great and small, especially her huge “Ellies” and tiny feathered friends, and, of course, Africa. Let Jeune’s life be remembered as the best example that a life lived simply but fully, with integrity and conviction is its own reward.
Jeune is survived by her three children; Jill Braddock, Kirsten Hovorka (Joe) and John Reinhold (Gaye), her six grandchildren and five great grandsons. Jeune was predeceased by her husband, daughter, sister and mother. Jeune will be forever missed and forever remembered.
A celebration of life service was held November 3rd. Memorial contributions can be made to Africaid, Elephant Passage at the Denver Zoo, and the CSU Women’s Basketball Program, in care of Allnutt Funeral Service, 650 W. Drake Road, Fort Collins, CO 80526.
