Jobyna C. Reeves Obituary
September 25, 1932 - August 7, 2016 Jobyna C. Reeves passed away just shy of her 84th birthday of congestive heart failure in Fullerton, CA. Jobyna lived in Hacienda Heights with her beloved husband of 36 years, Gabriel Olmos Porras. She is also survived by sons Donald, James, and David (deceased), daughter Joni, and grandchildren Jeremy, Tyler and Dylan. Jobyna was born in the Philippine Islands. She came to the U.S. at 16 years old and attended Nursing School in Portsmouth, Virginia. She commenced her Nursing Career at Cedar Sinai, in New York City. Jobyna married and continued nursing while raising 4 children. While working as a private practice surgical nurse, at the age of 48, she continued her education at Chapman College where she obtained her degree in Bachelor of Science. She continued on to work at the San Gabriel Valley Surgery Center, and proudly retired in 2001 as Director of the St. Jude Outpatient Surgery Center in Fullerton, CA. She enjoyed traveling the world with a group of friends, spreading laughter everywhere she went. She loved animated films, "everything" about food and cooking, bargain shopping and gift giving. Jobyna was a very caring and giving person, whether she knew the person or not, she always offered a joyful connection with her smile. She will be forever in our hearts and deeply missed. Memorial Services will be held on August 27, 2016 at 3:00 pm at City Church, 701 W. Broadway, Anaheim, CA 92805.
