Rynelle was born November 19, 1954, in Scottsbluff to Wayne and Beth (Sherman) Beitel. She attended Kelly School District 3 Kindergarten to fourth grade. Rynelle then went to Bridgeport Junior High for fifth through eighth grade and graduated from Bridgeport High School in 1973. Rynelle worked at her dad’s construction business, Pioneer Enterprises, during high school. Her experience allowed her to move on to Lockwood as a top certified welder with her friend Dianne Shaub. They out produced their men coworkers, and she was very proud of that.
She met Wayne Morris, and they were united in marriage on January 25th, 1975. They welcomed three sons: Dwayne, Ryan, and Austin. Rynelle was a homemaker and the family moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1985. She stayed home with the children during their younger years and then received her degree as a legal aid in 1989 from Chaparral College in Tucson, Arizona.
Rynelle worked at Continental Steel as a secretary and bookkeeper. She was also employed with the US Marshall Services for a short period of time and enjoyed the excitement and adventures that job brought.
She and Wayne divorced and Rynelle later joined lives with Dan R. Beets through Arizona common law. The couple moved several times from Phoenix to Denver due to Dan’s career with Quadna. Dan passed away in July 2008 and Rynelle moved to Minatare, Nebraska to be closer to her children and grandchildren.
Rynelle was a talented artist and enjoyed drawing and painting. Animals were special to her, and she was especially fond of horses and horse riding. Rynelle always wanted to save animals and take them in as her pets. She liked dancing and camping with her family. Rynelle had a keen sense of humor, a tender, soft heart, and always looked at the sensitive side before the practical side of individuals. She adored all her grandchildren! Rynelle was a member of Jobs Daughters and was Sr. Princess in 1973.
