The Glasgow Courier - Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Jennifer "Jenny" Louise Reinhardt


Jennifer "Jenny" Louise Reinhardt, age 67, passed away on Saturday, March 25, 2017, after a two-and-a-half-year battle with cancer. She was surrounded by family at the time of her passing.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 1, at the First United Methodist Church in Glasgow.

She was born in Glasgow, Mont., on June 29, 1949, to Lawrence "Bill" Kemp and Evelyn Wagner. She attended Glasgow High School, graduating in 1967. After spending some time living in California, Ohio and Florida, she returned to Glasgow and married Howard Reinhardt. They had three children, Stephanie, Tony and Nathan.

She worked in retail at Sears and JCPenney. She also worked at the Valley County Library before moving over to the Courthouse, where she worked first as the secretary for the Fair Board, Refuse Board, and Airport Commission. She was later appointed to fulfill the remaining term for the Valley County Treasurer and was re-elected to that post. She retired as the treasurer in July 2014. She could not stay retired for long, and returned to work part-time for the Airport Commission just months after retiring. She enjoyed working with the public and providing the best customer service. She was very detail-oriented and would often work extra hours to make sure the books were not off by even one cent.

She was active in her community and the Methodist Church. She served on a number of boards, including the Glasgow School Board, Library Board and Fair Board. She was a member of Soroptimist Club, Hospital Guild and United Methodist Women. She most recently served as treasurer for the Methodist Church. She was very giving of her time and energy to these groups and other people. She was a fantastic baker and took great pride in the fancy desserts and cakes that she would make for community functions and family. If you ask any of her children or grandchildren, they will all tell you that she makes the best sugar cookies they have ever tasted.

She had seven grandchildren who were a source of great joy. She would travel anywhere and everywhere to watch them participate in their activities, whether it be swimming, basketball, golf, dancing, or a school concert. Gramma Jenny was a true sport and became a camper and fisherwoman. She even learned to gut fish so that they could fry up their catch.

She was preceded in death by her father, Bill Kemp.

Survivors include her husband, Howard, and children Stephanie and Rett Hollar, Tony and Jenn Reinhardt, and Nate and Derin Reinhardt; along with seven grandchildren, Duncan, Morgan, Lily, Ella, Daegan, Walker and Maddox; her mother, Evelyn Kemp; and brothers, Bob Kemp and his wife, Bonnie, and Ron Kemp and his wife, Margaret, as well has numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

Bell Mortuary is assisting with arrangements. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
