Donna C. Reiner

September 28, 2021
Donna Christine Reiner, 67, of Newton, passed away on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at her home. She was born September 18, 1954 at Fort Riley, Kansas, to the late Lloyd and Mary (Martin) Norberg. Donna graduated from Bethany College in Lindsborg in 1976 and she married Steven Reiner on October 20, 1979 at Salemsborg Lutheran Church, Kansas.

Donna was a cherished mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She developed dear friendships through church and children’s activities throughout her marriage when her family lived in Hays, Hutchinson, Lakin, and Newton, Kansas. She retired in 2020 from her last job – one that brought her joy – at the Kanza Cooperative in Sedgwick; she grew up on the farm and one of her first jobs in high school was working the harvest at the Falun grain elevator.

She is survived by her husband: Steve of Newton, Kansas; daughters Anne (Brendon) Bowen of Royston, Georgia, and Candace (Stephen) Smith of Brownsville, Texas; as well as 4 grandchildren, Allison, Zachary, Mia and Aidan, and 2 great-grandchildren, August and Spencer.

She is preceded in death by her parents, brother Larry Norberg and sister-in-law Teri Norberg.

Donna’s funeral service will be at 11 AM on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at the Salemsborg Lutheran Church, 3831 W. Salemsborg Road, Smolan, Kansas 67456. It will be broadcast live on the Salemsborg Lutheran Church YouTube channel.
