Jennifer Reutlinger

January 17, 1986 ~ July 6, 2023 (age 37) 37 Years Old


Jennifer Anne Reutlinger of Peterborough NH passed away July 6, 2023, from a blood disorder, Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), which developed from a rare genetic disorder known as Schwachman-Diamond Syndrome, (SDS).  She was 37 years old.  Jennie lived most of her youth living in Greenfield, and Peterborough, NH. After high school, she attended the Job Corps Northlands campus in Vergennes, VT, and the Culinary Institute at Macintosh College, before receiving her phlebotomy license. She lived in Manchester NH for a short while, before returning to Peterborough.

Jennie was a curious child who loved exploring her natural world, camping and caving with family and friends.  She enjoyed spending time with her friends and watching her favorite movies, while snuggling with her cats.  As she grew into adulthood, complications from SDS became more apparent, hindering her ability to maintain an active and fulfilling life she had dreamed.  Although the struggles of her illness became more challenging, Jennie still remained a source of positivity, strength and kindness to others, no matter how ill she felt.  

Jennie often opened her home and her heart to those in need of a hand up.  Even in the last months of her illness, she often shared words of support and encouragement to others who needed it. The love she held for her family and friends helped give her the courage to fight the rare blood disease MDS. 

She is treasured by all who knew her and will be dearly missed.

Jennie is predeceased by her father, Steven J. Reutlinger.  She is survived by her fiancé, Shawn Capalbo of Peterborough, NH, her mother, June Coppola-Winey, (Calvin) of Peterborough, bonus mom, Caryn Mayo of Amherst, NH; two sisters, Sarah Reutlinger, her fiancé, Mark Nichols of Dublin, NH, and Lauren Reutlinger, of Peterborough, NH; two nephews, Connor and Liam Nichols, and a niece, Madison Devlin, along with many friends and loved ones.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Schwachman Diamond Syndrome Foundation.  A private service will be held at a later date.
