She spent 17 of those years as Director of Nursing for Decatur General Hospital. Mrs. Reinhardt was the true definition of giver.

Mrs. Reinhardt was an active member in her church, St. Paul's Lutheran, where she was a member of LWML and Ladies Auxiliary. She held a special place in her heart for girls that were not as fortunate as others; she did all she could to help them. She was a yearly donor to Children's International. Not only did Mrs. Reinhardt enjoy helping people; she also had a love for animals. She called her dogs and cats her babies. Mrs. Reinhardt worked hard to achieve all that she did. She will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
