It is with great sadness we inform you that Carolyn "Jane " Reynolds, 82, formerly of South Randolph passed on peacefully September 9, 2020.
Valedictorian of her class, anything Jane put her mind to she excelled at, and pursued many interests over the years. They included: farming, 4-H leader, VEHC, Gifford hospital board, VINS school program, hunting, fishing, cooking, gardening, bird watching, painting, and quilting were just a few. Extremely artistic, she enjoys sharing her gifts with others and taught classes quite often.
Jane would tell you the best time of her life was the 35 years she spent on the family farm with Russ and their three children, Scott (Marcia) Reynolds, Carol (Richard) Squire, and Sarah (Rick) Paul. She was known for her hard work, great cooking, and sugar on snow parties. If you stopped by there was always a cup of coffee on for you. She loved her family and all things nature, thoroughly appreciating the beautiful world around her.
After Russ and Jane sold the farm, Jane started working at M&M Redemption Center, then DLM services as an accountant and did so for over 30 years. They moved to Barre where she was known for her beautiful gardens, especially her enormous clematis, her little dog, Duchess, and of course, she was the witch of White street every Halloween!
After Russ passed on 11/09/2013, She moved to an apartment in Barre and continued working until last year. She spent much time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren which brought her tremendous joy. She enjoyed life, her family and her fierce independence until the very end.
Besides her children Jane leaves behind her brother, Don (Carissa) Smith, Sister in law, Rebecca Reynolds, brother in law Roger Gamelin, 6 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren, as well as many beloved nieces, nephews and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents Gerald and Marjorie Smith, mother and father in-law, Howard F and Margaret Reynolds, sister, Diane Gamelin, brother in-law, Howard S. Reynolds, Sister and brother in-law, Eloise and Floyd McPheteres.
