While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having God return your dear one to you.

Justine, my beautiful friend. I was shocked and saddened when I heard the news. You were my right hand gal and my best friend at work! 8 years together in the ER, most of them in peds... there are so many memories that come to mind but I will never forget when you dropped the big can of tomatoes on your foot and broke it and had to walk around the ER in that walking boot. And I will never live down the time I sent you home early and you were involved in that head on collision. Never did I send you home early again, even when you begged. (And I still maintain that you stole my trauma sheets because I cut off your scrubs). We shared some great memories that surrounded saving lives and I will never forget the compassion you had for your patients. On a personal level, we always talked about our kids, and they even spent time together when they were little. Your great love for Mike. And your dream to open a place for women to recover from surgery. It breaks my heart how time passes and people drift in and out of our lives. We recently talked about getting together. I will always remember you as the beautiful, vibrant, funny, caring, creative young blonde bombshell that you were. Rest in heaven and check in on us from time to time.

Justine was a loving caring person who put everybody before herself. She was an EMT at Aurora South for 8 years. She loved her family and her children. She made their costumes, helped out with school parties and went to their sporting events. When Mike and Justine started their company, Inspection Specialities, she worked right along side of her husband and did inspections also. As a children she took on the roll of keeping the family together. She was alot like her father and a little on the tomboy side. She loved to go fishing with him. She had a beautiful smile and loved to laugh. I will miss my beautiful daughter. I know you are watching over me and your dad from Heaven. You are our guardian angel. Love you always.

As we go along in life, people come and go. And at the time you don't realize you're meeting some of the best people, the best neighbors and the most fun. Justine, you were the best and most fun! Our little group was amazing and will never be matched again. The whole world is going to miss the light that you had.

Justine was the most generous woman I have ever met. I am so fortunate to call her my sister in law. We had some bumps along the road but so many awesome memories. When our grandson was diagnosed with cancer she offered to fly to Maine and help us. She gave him his nickname JJ. Anytime I needed help I knew I could ask Justine...she was always willing. She so enjoyed helping me in the Beauty salon...she should of been a hairstylist...she had the flair! I will miss her but cherish our memories and be forever thankful for her beautiful children who I love as they are my own. I am so blessed to be a part of the Rinow family...all my love to my brother in law Mike and my nieces and nephew ....peace to all....rest in peace Justine❤❤❤❤

Justine, such a beautiful heart. Oh, the shenanigans we pulled; trucks put up on jacks, houses being ransacked and turned upside down (literally). Let's also not forget holes in garage doors. We had great times, so many memories. You will be missed and I love you girl. Gone too soon.

I don’t even know where to start other than with shock and disbelief. You came into our lives so many years ago, you made my brother so happy with your spontaneous wit, your humor, your smile and then you gave him a beautiful family. Over the years we have had ups and downs and most recently more ups. I love your sense of humor and the love that you had for everyone around you. Thank you for all that you have given to my brother and our family , we will always be grateful. We will always remember. I hope that you are flying high with mom and Jason and your lady bug.... rest easy and fly high with the angels.... we will always love and miss you. Till we meet again Justine

We met you and your amazing family in 2007 and from that moment you shared your love, kindness and generosity with all of us. I always remember when Ashton came to our house for a sleep over and injured his little head. I was so shaken and cried for days and you kept calling me saying he is ok please don’t worry and then in true “ Justine” style showed up at my work with flowers and gifts to make me feel better. I should have been showering you with gifts but you didn’t see it that way. I will love you forever and the pain of not being able to talk to you again is real. Your family and all of us will get through this and stay strong because we know you wouldn’t have it any other way. All our love sweet beautiful Justine. We will miss you everyday.

I don't know anyone with a more generous soul, beautiful heart, or loving way with people. The night she kept my teenage son out way after curfew was there night I knew we were destined to be friends, because nobody else would have been chasing frogs after midnight! I don't know how to express how much she has done for me and my family, and I don't know how to accept her loss. #UsAlways
Take care of my boy, Justine. I love you.
