I am not sure but possibly the name could also be Rinnus? There are some 
families (Scherfer, Radke, Banek, Rinnus) which leaved east-prussia after WW-I 
and emigrated to the Zhitomir region. Fritz Rinnus and his wife Ida (Banek) 
had a daughter Käthe (Hohm) which is living today in Bottrop/Germany.
