Life History for Jane Reinbold
Jane Reinbold, age 81 of Long Prairie, went to meet Jesus on Monday, January 27, 2014 from the Centra Care Hospital in Long Prairie, MN.
On September 24, 1932 a baby girl was born to Richard G. and Edna (Sadlemyer) Robinson in Iona Township, Todd County. They named her Letitia Jane and she grew up on the family farm and later graduated from Long Prairie High School with the Class of 1949. She attended the Little Falls Teachers College and returned to Todd County to teach in area country schools. When the country schools consolidated with the public school in Long Prairie, Jane continued working at the Long Prairie Elementary School as a teacher's aide for many years.
On December 19, 1951 Jane married Norman Reinbold at the First Baptist Church in Long Prairie. As a strong woman of faith, Jane remained an active member of First Baptist and served for many years as a Sunday School teacher an AWANA leader, on the ladies' aid, and as a kitchen helper. She also volunteered her time as a local election judge.
Some of Jane's hobbies included sewing, knitting and quilting. Jane also enjoyed gardening and watching and feeding the many birds at her birdfeeders. She was a wonderful hostess who always had the coffee pot on for company and kept her family and friends supplied with delicious home-made goodies, including canned goods from her garden. She also made time to play games (such as Scrabble) at home with her children and grandchildren. She was a very devoted wife, mother, grandma and sister who will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
