Mrs. Reynolds was born October 26, 1923 in Cedar Hill to the late Charlie Lee and Willie Mae Hunter Priest. She was a homemaker. She married James Reynolds on May 7, 1942 and together they raised their family. She was a member of Springfield Baptist Church, where she enjoyed teaching Sunday School. She later began attending Eastland Heights Baptist Church and enjoyed the fellowship there for many years. Mrs. Reynolds was a devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great great grandmother. She loved gardening, reading, walking, garden photography, yard work, and being with her dogs and rabbits. The two things she enjoyed most in life was mowing her yard, and when Thanksgiving and Christmas came each year, she loved to cook a big meal for all her family and for anyone else that wanted to come. If she told you that lunch would be served at 12 noon, then you best arrive and be ready to eat at 12 noon. She lived her life for her family and for her Lord.
