Patricia I. Reynolds, 89, of Coloma passed away at home with family beside her on Saturday, April 25,
2020. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a later date.
Pat was born on March 17, 1931 to Lyle and Margaret Stanley. She grew up in Watervliet and worked at
VM Corporation for several years. She met the love of her life in 1948, and knew immediately that she
would marry him. She married Richard Reynolds on August 26, 1950, and they moved to their
permanent home in Coloma in 1959. She spent her time being a devoted wife, mother to her children,
and caregiver for many elder relatives. Pat was always making pies, cakes, cookies and candies to give
to family and friends. She crafted many things over the years to give to people in need such as scarves,
hats and slippers, baby blankets, photo albums, and created numerous other items as gifts for people
just to make them smile. She was constantly doing for others—always trying to make their lives better.
She was a member of the Watervliet Free Methodist Church.
Pat leaves precious memories in the hearts of her children, Brigg (Carolyn) Reynolds, Judy Reynolds and
Janet Reynolds; grandchildren, Alan (Sarah) Hembree, and Nicole (Shorty) Van Wy; great-grandsons, Jared
Pecoraro and Cody (Olivia) Hembree and step-great grandsons, Isaiah and David. She is also survived by
siblings, Raymond (Jean) Stanley, and Marcia Boyd; many nieces and nephews and numerous friends.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Richard, in 2009; daughter, Kathy, in 1954; granddaughter,
Krista Hembree, in 1985; parents; and siblings, Clifford Stanley, Wanda Foster, Bernard Stanley, Dale
Stanley, and Gary Stanley.
