Betty Jane Reynolds, of Orting, was called home to be with our Heavenly father and gained her wings on Wednesday, July 22, 2020 at 6:35pm pst. She had just celebrated her 59th birthday on April 13th of this year. She passed away peacefully at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, WA surrounded by her family, after a long and valiant battle with breast cancer.
Betty was born April 13, 1970 to Inge and Robert Jubenville, in Indiana. She was the youngest child in her family and has 3 older sisters and an older brother, all of whom she loved very much.
Betty was a very loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and aunt. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family. Family meant the worked to her. Betty and her husband Doug, had a love and marriage that many admired. They were true best friends and soulmates. They were married on December 25, 1996 and shared many happy years and adventures together. Betty had 4 children who she and Doug did an amazing job raising; Kailey and Tyler from a previous marriage, Brandon, who is Doug's son from his previous marriage, and whom Betty loved and raised as her very own, and Anthony whom she and Doug welcomed in September of 1997. Betty also has 2 beautiful granddaughters and a grandson due to arrive in October.
While her children were growing up, Betty always put them first and made sure they never went without anything and always knew how loved they were and how proud she was of them. Even as adults, she never missed a chance to make sure they knew how much they meant to her and how proud they made her and their father. She loved unconditionally with all of her heart and soul.
Betty was a very strong and courageous woman who was beautiful inside and out. She was everything a wife, mother, grandmother and friend should be. She took great pride in being a grandmother and made plenty of beautiful memories with her grand babies. She loved the sunshine, warm weather, being out and about with her family, riding around in her Jeep, checking out new places, antiquing, coffee and animals. She was a very avid animal lover. In fact, one of her very best friends, was her German Sheppard, Loki. Who passed away this past May. We know Loki was there, waiting to welcome Betty to her new home.
Betty was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer in October of 2014, thankfully caught it very early, fought it and beat it. Then she was re diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2017, this time, unfortunately, it was Stage 4 and had already metastasized in one of her lungs and in her liver. Despite the bad news, Betty was determined to fight and beat the cancer again. She fought extremely hard the entire time, never once giving up. She lived her life to the fullest. Always staying positive and never allowing this awful disease to win. She fought bravely all the way up till the very end.
Understandably so, even the strongest, most resilient warriors get tired and need a rest. Betty loved Jesus and believed in him with all her heart. She had accepted him into her heart and life many years ago, and as she fought her illness, with everything she had in her, her faith only grew stronger.
Betty is survived by her soulmate and husband Doug Reynolds, sons Tyler Reeves, Brandon Reynolds and Anthony Reynolds, daugher Kailey Murray (Nee': Reeves), Granddaughters Emalee Reynolds and Araya Murray, and Grandson, Grayson Murray, due to arrive in October, and countless other family members and very close friends. She is already deeply and painfully missed.
Funeral arrangements and a Celebration of life are currently in the process of being made. Donations, flowers, and condolences can be sent to Sumner Voiles Funeral Chapel in Sumner, WA or directly to the Reynolds family, who can be contacted at (253) 394-1771.
