Evelyn Eunice Jeanes Reynolds was born in Ringgold County, Iowa on March 28,
1922. She was the youngest of twelve children born to James Edgar Jeanes and
Etta Bye Jeanes. Her aunt and uncle, Harry and Margaret Jeanes House, raised
Evelyn from age two in a home just south of Clearfield. Evelyn graduated from
the Clearfield High School in 1939. In May of 1941 she was united
in marriage to Merril T. Reynolds at the United Methodist Parsonage in
In 1947, after Merril returned from military service during World War II, they
built a small house in Kelly, Iowa, just south of Ames so Merril could attend
college. They moved the family to Boulder, Colorado in 1952 after Merril was
offered a job there as a carpenter. In 1970 they decided to make another big
jump to Burbank, California and finally settled in North
Hollywood in 1972.
Evelyn started working as a secretary at a college in Ames and continued that
occupation until her retirement in 1985 from the First Presbyterian Church in
Hollywood, California when Merril became ill and needed her at home. He passed
away in January of 1991.
She will be remembered as a loving wife and mother who adored her
grandchildren. She was a wonderful cook. She had a variety of interest such as
collecting antique milk glass and building miniature dollhouses with Merril.
She enjoyed quilting, sewing, knitting and raising tropical birds. Evelyn took
art classes every chance she could as she loved learning new things. She also
grew prize winning roses.
Left to cherish her memory are her son, Richard Reynolds of Venture,
California, her daughter, Linda M. Naugle and husband Jerome of Boulder,
Colorado; four grandchildren, Karen, Larisa, Lacey and Lane; and two
great-grand children, Tyler and Dylan.
Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Merril in 1991 and
all of her brothers and sisters.
