Reanna Michelle was born on April 29th, 1978 to Lynn (Redding) Nicks and Michael Robinson.  She grew up in Owatonna, Minnesota and graduated from Owatonna High School in 1996. While living in Owatonna, Reanna exceled at and taught dance classes – a passion that would later be passed down to her daughter. Following her time in Owatonna, Reanna attended MCTC to pursue a degree in graphic design. In 2005 she met the love of her life, her husband Nathan. They welcomed a son, Luka, in 2006 and a daughter, Ayla in 2008. Reanna’s pride and joy was being a mother and a wife. She balanced motherhood with teaching preschool and having a small craft business.  Reanna will forever be remembered for her love of travel, taking road trips, going to concerts (especially Frank Turner), crafting, making people laugh and her love of being with her friends and family. Her sense of humor put people at ease and gave her the ability to make strangers become friends quickly. She was loved by all those who knew her, as shown by the tremendous support system that surrounded her constantly. Reanna was a free spirit during her days here on earth with a joy and zest for life.
Reanna is survived by her husband, Nathan Manthe, of Mankato, Minnesota; daughter, Ayla Manthe, and son, Luka Manthe, of Mankato, Minnesota and step-son, Wyatt Manthe of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; mother, Lynn (Keith) Nicks of Jordan, Minnesota; brother Brandon Robinson and niece Emma Robinson of Owatonna, Minnesota; half-sister, Jordan (Jon) Halvorson, of Owatonna, Minnesota; mother-in-law, Denise Manthe, of Waseca, Minnesota; sister-in-law, Krysta (Brady) Metcalf, niece, Cove Metcalf, nephews Crosby Metcalf and Michael Metcalf, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; aunts, uncles, cousins, and many special friends.

Praying for Reanna's family during a time of sadness, We followed and prayed for Reanna through Anna P and felt Reanna was like family although we had never met her. Reanna will grace heavens door with her presence.

Nathan, you and your family are all in my thoughts and prayers. Reanna was truly a special soul with so much love for life, family, and children, which I was blessed to witness and be a part of as a teacher at ECFE. Love to you all
