A graveside service will be held Friday, November 20, 2020 in the Greenview Memorial Park at 1:00 p.m. with Bro. Tim Grigsby officiating.
Reba was born at home in Lauderdale County and lived most of her life in the Oakland Community farming with her husband Fred and caring for her family. She was a member of the Oakland Church of Christ and a devoted follower of her Lord Jesus. After marrying Fred, he left to serve in the military and she continued to manage their farm until his return. The greatest joy in their lives was when the call came to come and pick up their adopted baby girl Freida who was the light of their lives. Reba devoted her life to her husband, daughter, and large family plus her many friends. She was a wonderful cook who loved to serve delicious meals as her way of showing love and you never went to her home without sharing some of her home cooking before you left. Reba was also a talented seamstress who made a lot of decorations, curtains, and items in her home. She was a loving, giving, and sweet southern lady who loved to socialize spending a lot of time with friends and family camping, traveling, and playing cards. The last few years of her life were spent at Columbia Cottage where she was loved and enjoyed all the social activities with her friends and family that visited. Since February she was a resident at Lauderdale Christian Nursing Home where she loved the food, attention, and care she received from the devoted staff. She was a joy to many and will be greatly missed.
