Within the large Reynolds family, Regina was a warm, caring and giving person. There were no strangers to Regina as she was always available to help and assist others in need. In her last years of declining health, her son Kip was with her, assisting with her every need.
We will all miss her presence, humor and thoughtfulness. She is now beside the love of her life Edwin Earl “Dick” Reynolds.
