Patricia Ann Reiner

Patricia Ann Reiner, age 78, of Gordon, went to sleep in the Lord on Wednesday, Oct. 30, at her home.

She was born to the late James and Vera Troyer on April 28, 1935, in Ottawa, Ill.

Patricia graduated from Sunnydale Academy in 1953 and received a BA in Elementary Education from Union College in Lincoln, Neb., in 1964. It was in Lincoln while teaching elementary school that she met Cordell Reiner, and after a six-month whirlwind romance they were married on June 11, 1967. She followed him as he entered the ministry, and after frequent moves they settled in Texas in 1998.

Patricia was an elementary school teacher for over 30 years, retiring in 1995. She was passionate about making a difference in the lives of her students, coming alive in the classroom; some may be surprised to learn of the extreme shyness of her youth. Throughout her life she maintained a sweet and simple demeanor that won the trust and hearts of many, who even now are being changed by her witness of constant love and faith. Her signature gift of joy, shown through her constant smiling, will never be forgotten.

Patricia was an active member of the Stephenville Seventh-Day Adventist Church and supported her husband in his ministry. She loved to read and solve puzzles, and was a secret artist and poet.

Patricia is survived by her husband, Pastor Cordell Reiner, and two siblings: Marilyn Russell of Apison, Tenn., and John Troyer of Albuquerque, NM.  

Children include Betheny Jones of Killeen, and Kevin Reiner of Berrien Springs, Mich.   

She also is survived by 11 grandchildren. A woman of faith, Patricia shaped their spirituality by her tireless Christian example.

Patricia is preceded in death by four siblings: Arthur Troyer, Robert Troyer, Ray Troyer and Beverly Gifford; and two children: Michael Reiner and Joy Zimmerman.

A memorial service will be held at the Stephenville Seventh-Day Adventist church on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 2 p.m. A dinner will be served following the service. All are welcome.

Gifts of flowers can be sent to the Stephenville Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The family is requesting that any donations be made to the Stephenville Seventh-Day Adventist Church, marked for Evangelism.

  • Sunburn isn't the only sign of summer that can leave you itchy and blistered

    You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.
