Bunita Beth Reinke-Nordquist

September 04, 1969 - December 08, 2021


Bunny Beth Reinke Nordquist, 52, of Anderson, Missouri departed this life Wednesday, December 8th, 2021 at St. Vincent Hospital in Little Rock, Arkansas surrounded by her family and friends from complications from a severe stroke.

She began her travels on September 4th, 1969 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, born to the late Boyd “Paul” Bradley and Mary Margaret (Arbogast) Reinke. She married David Nordquist in Watertown, South Dakota. She truly enjoyed working with her family every summer at Southern Fun Carnival bringing smiles and enlightening the lives of many throughout Missouri. To Bunny no distance was too far to travel to visit or help a friend. She was always either running around in her car or golf cart, to visit and help those she loved and cared for. If she wasn’t visiting, she was on the phone with them daily if not several times a day. No matter if you were her husband, child, family, or friend she was your greatest cheerleader. She loved to cook for anyone, her kitchen was always open even when she had hours posted on her house. There never was enough fudge but there was always junk food on her counter with no limits, and somehow a dinner always had enough food for whoever walked through the door. When you didn’t find her home or on the carnival she was floating in the ocean, traveling the Caribbean and sometimes overseas with her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Bradley Reinke and her grandson Alan Reinke. She is survived by her loving husband, David Nordquist of the home; her children: Brett and Brittany Reinke; Dakota Reinke; Trevor and Taylor Reinke. Her sisters Josette and Eddie Fuller, Brandy and Chris Putman, Sue and Donnie Miller; Grandchildren: Ben, Abby, Baron, Paisley; Nieces and Nephews: Jaehney, Kaitlyn, Mikeal, Braxton, Bella, Tucker, Auston and all of their families. Along with a host of other family and friends who will dearly miss Bunny.

Memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, January 3, 2022 in the Anderson Chapel of the Ozark Funeral Homes.
