Patricia was fortunate enough to have met the love of her life at 13 years old at Freeburg High School. Mike and Pat married a few years later. She stayed at home and took care of their 3 children and attended BAC (SWIC) for accounting. She began volunteering at school when her youngest started kindergarten and eventually went on to work for Freeburg Elementary School. After a few years she left Freeburg Elementary to accept a position at the St. Clair County Treasurer’s Office and eventually retired from the County after 26 years in 2017.
Over the years, Patricia volunteered at the library and was involved at the First Baptist Church of Freeburg. She was a very loving wife and mother. Patricia was passionate about spending time with her grandkids, always attending their extracurricular events and relaxing with them as much as possible in the pool. With Patricia, friends were her family as well. When it came to any family party or holiday celebration, everyone was welcome at her table. All of Pat’s friends and family would know that her favorite place on earth was St. John Island U.S.V.I. with her toes in the sand and a bushwhacker in hand. Given her love for the island, she chose this as her final resting place…
She was preceded in death by her father, Kenneth L. Davis; maternal grandparents, Wallace D. and Edna M., nee Hartley, Bell; paternal grandparents, Pleasant and Lena, nee Moulder, Davis, and her mother-in-law and father-in-law, Clarence “Tex” and JoAnn, nee Carr, Reynolds.
Surviving are her husband of nearly 43 years, Michael R. Reynolds, whom she married on August 13, 1975;
two daughters, JoDee (Aaron) Burrow and Andrea Reynolds;
a son, Jeremy (Alicia) Reynolds;
eight grandchildren, Mallory, Clark, Ethan, Adreanna, Noella, Hartley, Asher, and Lizzy;
her mother, Delores J., nee Bell, Davis;
one brother, Michael (Debbie) Davis;
and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
