Jacqueline Candice Deines-Rynders was born to Joe Blackcat and Lena Lefthand in Pine Ridge, South Dakota on October 31, 1963. She was a track and field star running for the Kadoka Kougars and playing basketball. She was later adopted by Kay Pettyjohn. She worked for many years at a local nursing home in Kadoka; but transferred to the manor in Hot Springs where she worked to give her children the best life she could after the tragic passing of her husband Steven Rynders due to a long battle with cancer.
She is survived by her daughters Casey Deines and Jamie Foy, her sons Tanner Rynders and Dayton Rynders, her soon-to-be daughter-in-law Felix Hall, and her grandchildren Cyril Eisenbraun, Kaylee Eisenbraun, Isabella Foote, Peyton Foy, and Lilith Rynders. She loved playing games with her grandchildren and spending all her days helping and caring for anyone, and everyone, who needed it.
She was preceded in death by both of her parents, her brother Austin Black, her husband Steven Rynders, and her father-in-law Norman Rynders. I can imagine that she is sitting at a table having coffee with her Father-in-law telling him about how much her children have grown.
