Jennifer was born on February 24, 1973, in Oswego, New York, to John Spano and Kathleen Reed. She moved to Savannah, Georgia, in 1983 and has lived in South Dakota since 2006. She married Michael J. Reinhardt, Jr., in Savannah, Georgia, on March 27, 2004.
Jennifer was skilled in many areas and worked many jobs. She was an active member of Calvary Church in Milbank and served as the church secretary. She also worked at Taco Johns and owned a local cleaning service. Jennifer was generous with her time and talents. She often volunteered for Farley Fest, LifeFlight, activities at Calvary Church, and cooking at Elevation Camp over the summer.
Jennifer loved cooking and caring for anyone and everyone. She loved singing, and she was not shy about giving advice to friends and family. She always knew what to say at the right time, even if it wasn’t something someone wanted to hear, but needed to hear it.
Jennifer is survived by her mother, Kathleen Reed of Georgia; father, John J. (Susan) Spano of Georgia; husband, Michael Reinhardt, Jr. of Twin Brooks; children: Henry John Thomas (Christina) Rushing, Jr. of Milbank, Robert Aaron Rushing of Georgia, Katherine Amberly Warren of Twin Brooks, Charles James Randall Rushing of Twin Brooks, and Michael Chaz Reinhardt of Twin Brooks; grandchildren: Raydyn and Hadleigh Rushing; sisters: Shannon (Stephen) Gray of Georgia, Kari Allen of Georgia, and Sarah Spano of New York; brothers: John Spano of Florida, and Nick Spano of New York. She is also survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, and several extended family members too numerous to mention.
If anyone would like to make a donation in Jennifer’s name, it would have pleased her to have it donated to the children’s ministry at Calvary Church in her honor.
