Long-time Cave Creek resident Selma Reincke went home to be with our “Heavenly Father” on Palm Sunday, April 5, 2009.

The Reinckes moved to Southern California in 1955. Selma worked for Underwood and Hale in Lynwood. They moved to Buena Park in 1974. She retired from Beckman Instruments in Fullerton, Calif. later that year.

Selma was a member of the Light of the Desert Lutheran Church and Cave Creek American Legion Post 34 Ladies Auxiliary. She enjoyed her flowers and gardens and tending to her outside desert plants.

She will be greatly missed by all. She was a very loving person who cared about everyone. She made friends wherever she went.
