Obituary of Patricia June Reina Patricia June Reina, 73, passed away on Friday, November 8, 2019 in Coral Springs, FL. Born in Kingston, NY on June 12, 1946, she was a daughter of the late Manuel Reina and Ida Mae Townsend Reina. Born in Kingston, NY, the family moved to Miami, FL when she was eight where she spent her childhood. She graduated from Miami Edison High School in 1964, where she was known as Patty. Following high school, she lived in New York City, Falls Church, VA, Atlanta, GA, Bethesda, MD and Del Ray Beach, FL and was known as “P.J.” during her adult life. She was full of life and commanded attention by those who knew and loved her. Living in NYC as after high school, she had a successful modeling career and worked as an executive assistant. Her career also included radio sales executive and real estate agent. She moved to Atlanta, along with her two daughters, after her divorce to be near her sister. Laughter was her way of life and is revealed in most of her photographs. She remembered her mother saying “Laughter is the best medicine” and she took heed. She loved gardening and had a green thumb. She was quite creative and beautiful. Looking “put-together” was her way of life. She was like a rainbow that colored the world. Her strength and zest for life touched the lives of everyone who knew her. She had a deep interest in healthy eating and living and a desire to nurture and heal those around her. Her wit and sense of humor will be remembered as her best attribute of all. She will remain in our hearts forever and will always be with us. P.J. is survived by one daughter, Leah Lauren Parks of Bronxville, NY, FL; one brother, Richard Ronald Reina of Tampa, FL; one sister, Marilyn Reina Krone of Atlanta, GA; one grandson, Adam Aqrabawi of Del Ray, FL and her long-time best friend and partner, Lou Boland of Bethesda, MD.
