Jinni Ellen Gaines Reinus, BHS 1970

Jinni Ellen Gaines Reinus, our friend from Burbank High Class of 1970. April 28, 1952 - June 20, 2016 

Jinni passed away peacefully on Monday at home in Fieldbrook, CA with her loved ones with her after suffering so much and enduring so much over the last six years. Her husband of 45 years, Jeffrey Reinus, endured it all along with Jinni these past years. Jeffrey is also our BHS '70 classmate (he and I began in kindergarten together), and he and Jinni were high sweethearts. 

Jinni's service will be this Thursday the 23rd at 10:00 A.M. in Eureka, CA. Please be thinking of Jeffrey and his family during that special time for them. Besides Jeffrey, Jinni leaves their daughter Jessica, and her husband Justin, her two granddaughters Sadie and Orah, her brother David, and sister Terri. Jeff and Jinni's daughter, Jaimee, predeceased Jinni. Any memorial contributions may be made to "Hospice of Humboldt".

  1. I met Jinni briefly, at her former home in Burbank, CA...after her daughter Jaimee's funeral. I was friends with Jaimee for ten years...and during that time...she'd helped me get a job where she was working in 2001...a job that lasted as long as our friendship. I gave Jinni a framed photo of Jaimee, which I'd taken (of her) at our office, in Encino. Jinni seemed very thankful and appreciative at the gesture. I hope Jinni is at Peace now...and in Heaven with Jaimee.
