Terri Reinartz

Art, communication and involvement define Terri’s life – talents she shares with Living Proof Exhibit as a board and marketing committee member. Retired from John Deere after a 35-year career in Human Resources, Marketing, and Global Communications, Terri invests her passion in the community. After a breast cancer diagnosis, her words seemed to lose their luster. To stimulate her brain during the treatment and healing process, she did jigsaw puzzles. Today she designs “Healing Puzzles for cancer patience” to help others with puzzle therapy, a project she shares with Living Proof Exhibit. 

Terri is married to Paul Reinartz and together they have six children (living in six states), and five grandsons.  Terri is the eldest of six kids.  Her 87+ year old mother lives nearby and depends on Terri to serve as matriarch in training.  

Travel to see family, gardening, doing puzzles, playing cards/games with friends and TV/movies top Terri’s favorite pastimes.
