Madeline "Pete" Reynolds

June 17, 1928 — January 7, 2024

 

On Sunday, January 7 th, 2024, Madeline “Pete” Reynolds, our Family Icon, passed due to natural causes. She was our inspiration, our example, our teacher, the artist, the gardener, the comandante, a collector of anything, and our mother.  Her knowledge of the Bankruptcy Court, quick wit, and her ability to accomplish lent to a reputation known by so many in the Legal System. Her life spanned through every major historical event this country experienced since 1928. She was creative, incisive, opinionated, imaginative, insightful, and mischievous. She raised four daughters and a son, managed all life’s ups and downs, and became a friend you could depend on to so very many people. She is irreplaceable and will be forever loved and missed.
