Obituary: Norah Reynolds

Norah “Kathy” Kathryn Reynolds, 72, of Sweet Home, died Sept. 28, 2009 at her home.

She was born Oct. 16, 1936 in Wright City, Okla., the fourth of nine children, to Guy and Gladys (Igo) Honeywell.

Mrs. Reynolds moved with her parents to Sweet Home in 1947. Nicknamed “Honey,” she rarely used the name Norah or the original pronunciation of “Kathreen.” She graduated from Sweet Home Union High School in 1955 and began her training in cosmetology.

Her life’s work blessed Sweet Home in the beauty department for many years.

She married Ervin Reynolds on Dec. 5, 1958. They celebrated their 50th anniversary with friends at home. The Reynoldses wintered in Arizona for several years after their retirement in 1991. Mrs. Reynolds had a very pleasant personality and her happy smile will be missed there.

As a committed Christian and a member of Sweet Home Assembly of God Church, Mrs. Reynolds served for many years in a variety of ministries. One of her strongest life convictions was to live a Christian life and share the good news of Jesus Christ with those near her.

Mrs. Reynolds is survived by her husband, Erv Reynolds; two sons, Mark Reynolds of Lancaster, Pa,, and Brian Reynolds of Honolulu, Hawaii; sisters Venita Stevenson, Darlene Gaskey and Peggy Honeywell; brother Fred Honeywell; and six grandchildren.

A memorial service was held Oct. 3 at Sweet Home Assembly of God Church.

Memorial contributions can be made in Mrs. Reynolds’ name to the Sweet Home Assembly of God. Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling the arrangements.
