Reinette I. Mauk

February 16, 1963 ‒ March 18, 2017

Mansfield, Ohio

 

MANSFIELD: Reinette’s faith was placed in Jesus Christ as her Savior. As such she entered into His presence Saturday, March 18, 2017 from her home surrounded by her family. She was 54.

Born Feburary 16, 1963 to parents Thomas & Irene (Schilling) Connor in Santa Barbara California. Reinette graduated from Ashland High School with the class of 1981. On September 19, 1981, she married Mark K. Mauk and they shared 35 wonderful years of marriage together.

She loved to be outside working in the barn or the garden. Her passion for horses led to many years working with Raemelton Therapeutic Equestrian Center first as a volunteer, then as an instructor and volunteer coordinator. Reinette was also an avid skier. She was a member of Ski Patrol at Clearfork Ski Area and Snow Trails.

There was nothing she loved more than her family, friends, and animals. Her smile was as quick as her sense of humor. She never met a stranger. If anyone ever had a question about anything, Reinette was the person to ask. She had an artistic side a mile wide. Anything from painting to pastels to creating horse show clothing; she could do it.

She is survived by husband Mark K. Mauk, children Andrea J. Mauk, Ethan T. Mauk and Andrea L. Mauk; granddaughter Shaylee L. Mauk; Brother Guy Connor; parents Tom & Irene (Schilling) Connor.

The Mauk family will receive friends Tuesday, March 21, 2017 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where a memorial service honoring Reinette’s life will be held Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. Pastor Curt Crist will speak.

For contributions in her memory may be made at the funeral. Please, make checks payable to Raemelton Therapeutic Equestrian Center.

  • Our deep sympathy is with you and your family. We are sad to hear of Reinette’s passing, but rejoice in knowing that she’s celebrating with Jesus! Although we will never understand God’s ways or His timing, we can be certain that “His love endures forever”, and “His mercies are new every morning”. Mark, your love for Reinette was apparent in the gentle and kind way that you cared for her through the difficult times that she had during her illness, and that love for her was a testimony of God’s faithfulness to all of us. Although we are out of town, please know that our prayers are with you.

  • Dearest Tom, Irene, Mark and Family,

    Our bond grew from that very first Bible Study where we poured our love and prayers for our children out to our Lord; it became a true gift from him in the blending of many blessings and an enduring friendship. Your precious Reinette was indeed a kindred spirit to me. Her love of all things ART and animals always gave us much to talk about and she absolutely could brighten a room with her love for Jesus, her wit and her genuine smile. She just made me HAPPY! My heart aches for you and your entire family and I will continue to lift you all up in prayer. My our Lord and Savior continue to surround you with His Love and Grace.
    All My Love,
    Dorie
