Julie was united in marriage to the love of her life, Nathan J. Baldwin, on Aug. 28, 1975, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Nathan tragically passed away Sept. 9, 1983, due to a brain tumor.

While residing in the Silver Valley, people would fondly remember Julie as the manager of the Silver Spoon Restaurant in Kellogg, Idaho, and the Sunshine Inn Café also of Kellogg. She ventured on to serve as general manager for food services within military and civilian agencies throughout the United States and Japan.

Julie loved and enjoyed her family, coin collecting, the beaches and collecting shells, baking especially Christmas goodies and traveling.

Julie is survived by her son, Nathan “Butch” Baldwin of Kellogg; her grandson, Nolan Baldwin of San Bernardino, Calif.; her brothers and sisters, Larry Joe Reinhofer (Wendy) of Cataldo, Idaho, John Dean Reinhofer (Terri) of Wenatchee, Wash., and Sue Reinhofer Jones (Kevin) of Amelia Island, Fla.; eight nieces and nephews; and three grand nieces and numerous cousins. Julie was preceded in death by her parents, Fritz and Ada Reinhofer; her husband, Nathan J. Baldwin and one sister, Wanda Rickett.

Julie was a very caring and giving person, who loved to take care of others; she had a heart of gold. To her son Butch, she was and will always be his guardian angel. She was so very loved and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Memorial services for Julie will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 11, 2022, at the Kellogg Funeral Chapel, with Pastor Bill Howard officiating. A reception at the chapel will be held following services.
