JoAnn Nystrom Reiners, age 85, of Madison Wisconsin, passed away on October 8, 2018 at her home surrounded by her family. She was born on April 20, 1933, in Galesburg Illinois, the daughter of Alfred and Phoebe Nystrom. Survived by husband Jack Reiners, daughters Janet Reiners Balboni (Al), Houston, Texas, Julie Chenoweth (Jay), Verona, Wisconsin, and Jennifer Reiners, Chicago, Illinois. Also survived by grandchildren Jessica Kluth, Amanda Balboni Newitt and Michael Balboni; Nicholas Chenoweth, Brian Chenoweth and Kathryn Chenoweth and two great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by her parents and sister Phyllis Nystrom Sorrells.

She graduated from Galesburg High School in 1951 and graduated magna cum laude from Knox College in 1955. She was a proud member of Phi Beta Kappa honor society and a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. Soon after graduation, she began teaching elementary school in Galesburg. She married Jack Reiners on June 23, 1956 and they moved to LaGrange Illinois where she had her first two daughters. They relocated to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin in 1964, where their third daughter was born. While raising her family, she taught piano in her home and enjoyed playing tennis, volunteering in her daughters' schools and at church. She began substitute teaching as her children grew older. After three years in Barrington, Illinois, JoAnn, Jack and their youngest daughter moved to Madison, Wisconsin, where JoAnn continued to teach piano in her home and at St. Peter Catholic School in Ashton, Wisconsin. She was an active member of Madison Area Piano Teachers Association. In January 2012, JoAnn and Jack moved to Prairie Point, a part of Attic Angel Community. Beginning with their first move to Wisconsin, JoAnn and her family enjoyed visiting Door County Wisconsin every summer. JoAnn took every opportunity to celebrate her Swedish heritage at holidays and especially with her grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held on October 27, 2018 at 1:30 pm at Attic Angel Place, 8301 Old Sauk Road, Middleton, WI. The family will be available from 12:30-1:30. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to Agrace Hospice (Agrace, 5395 E. Cheryl Parkway, Madison, WI 53711; https://www.agrace.org/donate ) or Attic Angel Association (Attic Angel Association, 640 Junction Rd, Madison, WI 53717; https://www.atticangel.org/images/giving/donate-form.pdf)

Jack, just heard through the "Door County Grapevine" of JoAnn's passing. Certainly, our condolences and deepest sympathies go out to you and your family at a time when words often mean so little. Your care and attention to your wonderful wife go beyond description. As you adjust your personal life, please let us know when you are in Door as we would enjoy seeing you and conjuring up Glidden memories.
Sincerely, Bill & Jane Hensge

Jack: I have sat behind you at the Attic Angels Lectures on Monday mornings, Frequently, I have observed the tenderness with which you have interacted with your wife. This morning I noticed that you were sitting alone. Nancy Schroeder, who was sitting next to me, shared that your wife had passed away. Please accept my condolences. I so enjoyed reading the obituary! Such a wonderful life that JoAnn experienced! I believe she would have been a good friend had I had the pleasure of knowing her. MARY LOU REISCH
