Jenny Steele Rink passed away on August 16, 2017, at Casa de Luz Hospice in Tucson, Arizona, after a short battle with cancer. Jenny was born December 27, 1940, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She and her identical twin sister Wendy were the daughters of Dr. John Dutton Steele and Betsy (Owen) Steele. She lived in Milwaukee until the Steele family moved to Northridge, California, in 1955. She graduated from Fox Point School in Milwaukee, Reseda High School, in Reseda, California, and, with a degree in Medical Records Administration, from UCLA where she was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority. \n\nJenny married Robert (Bob) Allen on August 10, 1963. They had two children, Elizabeth (Libby) and Catherine (Cathy), whom they raised in both Thousand Oaks and Walnut Creek, California. Jenny managed medical records departments in hospitals in Thousand Oaks and Oakland, CA, and Madison, WI, and ran her own medical record storage business in Oakland. Jenny also worked as a medical transcriptionist, often working from home.\n\nJenny returned to her roots in Wisconsin in 1991 to be near many of her cousins with whom she stayed very close after many summer "Bungalowen" family reunions with them, and later all of the cousins' children, and their children. She purchased a house in the early days of the development of Saddlebrooke, with her second husband, Bill Jacobsen. Jenny quickly personified a "Snowbird" and enjoyed many winters golfing, hiking, and socializing with her fellow Saddlebrookers. Jenny absolutely adored her community of friends in Saddlebrooke, and eventually settled in Saddlebrook permanently.\n\nJenny married Joe Rink on May 6, 2006. Joe was unequivocally the love of Jenny's life. Jenny didn't like to sit still, nor did Joe. They enjoyed 11 years of active adventures throughout the U.S. to attend Notre Dame football games, the Kentucky Derby, and to visit family, as well as trips to Europe, Turkey, Australia, and Israel. Jenny became very close to Joe's five kids and embraced them and their children as her own. Jenny and Joe loved to entertain their Saddlebrooke friends and out of town guests in their villa, which Jenny was always remodeling and decorating with local pottery. Jenny always threw a great party.\n\nJenny and Joe split their time between Saddlebrooke and Edwards and Avon, Colorado, where they would stay to escape the summers of Tucson and spend time with three of Joe's kids and their friends in the area. Joe and Jenny loved to play pickleball in Saddlebrooke, and were instrumental in starting and growing pickleball in the Vail Valley, lobbying the parks and recreation center to designate one tennis court for pickleball use. As a result of their efforts, the Vail Valley now has a thriving pickleball community. \n\nJenny was a self-professed "gadget queen." She loved organizing everything from alphabetizing spices to family and school reunions. One of her greatest interests was computer technology and she was a consultant helping others, especially seniors, with web design and computer problems. She was a member of the "Microsoft Insiders," a large community of users who get to test new Microsoft products. Last year she was proud to be one of ten Insiders selected, out of more than a thousand applications, to visit Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington, and to travel to New York for the introduction of Windows 10. \n\nJenny was full of spunk, had an indelible sense of humor and smile, an unmistakable laugh, as well as a tireless drive to never stop working, creating, and learning (and organizing). Her daughter Catherine remembers her telling her a couple of years ago, "I feel like I'm 40!" \n\nJenny is survived by her husband, Joseph Rink, Jr., of Tucson, her daughter, Catherine Allen of Santa Rosa, California, her stepchildren, Patti Rink, Peggi Aiken (Steve), Joey Rink, Jamie Rink (Diana), Regina Rink Donnelly (Terrence), four Rink grandchildren, her brother, Christopher (Kit) Steele (Bryant) of Pasadena, California, her sister, Polly Munson (Al) of Peyton, Colorado, and eight nieces and nephews, including Hope Teasdale (Michelle) and Lindsay Monroe (Scott). Jenny was preceded in death by her parents, her daughter Libby who died tragically in 1984, and her twin sister Wendy who died in 2005.\n\nDonations in Jenny's memory can be made to the Saddlebrooke Community Outreach or the Casa de la Luz Hospice, both in Tucson, Arizona. \n\nPlease contact Jenny's family for information on Jenny's planned funeral and reception.
