Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Jayne Ellen Molnar was born on June 4, 1957 in Newark, Ohio where she was promptly adopted by John and Janice Pease Molnar. She had a very indulged childhood. With ponies, cowboy paraphernalia, cars and anything else she wanted. This did not spoil her though, she grew up to be a very passionate, witty, enthusiastic, intelligent, warm, loving, giving individual. She was quick with her wit and had an infectious laugh.
Jayne met Carol A. Reinard, her future wife, In Fresno, California while on a rafting trip down the Kings River. Carol always said she saved Jayne’s life when she fell out of a rubber inner tube. It was love at first sight for Jayne, but Carol needed some convincing. Jayne won her over with her endearing, persistent ways and they were together 28 years. Throughout those years they had many adventures which took them to many places in North America and the Caribbean. This last year, Jayne was able to visit her families in Ohio and Nevada and complete her bucket list of places she wanted to visit. Most had water surrounding them for she loved the “healing waters” of the oceans.
Jaynes worked in management in various companies. She was a natural leader, not shying away from any responsibilities always putting other’s needs before her own. She was a role model to all of those who worked around her. Trying to be a good example, she would not ask an employee to do something she wouldn’t. She cultivated many friendships which have lasted throughout the years. No matter who she managed, they considered her a friend and respected her for genuine concern for them in the workplace. She attracted people to her no matter their background, belief, color or sexual preference. This admiration grew from the way she treated her employees, never demeaning or disrespectful. Jayne had an ability to know a person based on a mere glimpse. Then there was the ability to develop rapport with everyone she met. Her secret was she was able to make people feel comfortable no matter the situation.
Her passion for dogs brought her to create One Lucky Pup Dog Daycare and Boarding her dream. It was there where she developed a circle of friends whom she loved and cherished, because of course, they loved dogs. People knew their pet would be well taken care of with Jayne and her crew. After 9 years, when her cancer got to be to much, she sold her dream with a reluctant heart.
Hepatic Cellular Carcinoma took over her life in 2015, being the person, she was, she did not want anyone knowing she was “sick”. Sickness to her meant weak and vulnerable. After many procedures to kill the cancer, the cancer went into remission, but not before creating liver damage. Her liver continued to fail over the next 3 years. Amazingly she remained cheerful throughout, always hopeful for a turnaround and finding the lighter side in life. Everyday, until the end she laughed and made her friends laugh with her. Her hospice nurse said she loved to visit Jayne because she made her laugh.
She is survived by her wife Carol A Reinard, her sisters Debbie Murray of Las Vegas, Nevada and Charlotte Schroeder of Columbus, Ohio, her brothers Mark Schrader of North Miami, FL, John Schrader of Columbus, OH, James Schrader from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and David Holschlag of Bristol, CT.
