Dear Reynolds family,
I was very saddened to hear of the death of Mary Lou, or Mrs. Reynolds as I always called her. I visited her several times at the nursing home the last few years while my father was there. We talked about the good ol'days of pizza parties with Randy at his house and the sleepovers. She was like a second mother to me and I still recall the good times I had many years ago with Randy

I cannot begin to describe how much of an impact this woman has made on my life, I would even consider her another grandma to me. I cannot even say her name without smiling. There will never be a time that I forget her strong hugs or warm smile. I hope Jesus truly enjoys her company as much as I have. God Bless you beautiful Mary Lou. I will always miss you. I carry your heart with me, I carry

What do you say about a woman who did it all? I will miss my mom so much. She was a great mother, and a great Granny to my 4 kids. She was so proud to be a Mom, and she was a good one. She cared for her children in a way most of us can only dream about. She beamed w/ pride when her grandchildren and great - grandchildren were mentioned. The thing I will remember most about

Growing up in Cridersville I have great memories of Mary Lou Reynolds and her family. What a good mother and example she was to all of us.
I left Cridersville 40 years ago - but Cridersville never left me.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.

I worked with Randy at Pangles. I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing. My memory of her is that she was a very nice person and I'm sure she will be greatly missed.

Jennifer and family, I'm so sorry I missed the services. Thinking of you with sympathy and remembering the times spent with Mary Lou at Calvary UMC.

I will always remember visiting Mary Lou at the manor when I would take Mom walks. We would stop in and visit for awhile and talk about the family. Mary Lou loved all of her children and grandchildren and was so proud of them. She was always smiling and very kind and loving to everyone. She will truly be missed by all! Love, Tom and Pam Houston and family

I have such fun memories of Mary Lou in scouting, Our younger daughter was a Brownie and I had the Junior troop with our older daughter. Our combined "Day Camps" at Lotz's Poind were a "hoot". Later in life I find out our son and her grandsons became lifetime friends. She was a jack of all trades, never a loss for words, a wonderful, fun person. We are lucky to have had her in our life.

Mrs. Reynolds was a great girl scout leader. We popped popcorn in a empty coffe can with a wire hanger. I made my first smores camping with her. We had to build an outdoor bathroom. She came to visit my Mom one evening and I was outside mowing the barnyard when something went through the lawn mower and cut my leg open. By the time, I got into the house blood was running down my leg. My mom went crazy.
