Iris Rebecca Reynolds

MERIDIAN —

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Services for Iris Rebecca Reynolds will be held Saturday, at 11:30 a.m., at New Life Church World Prayer Center, 11025 Voyager Parkway. Swan Law Funeral Directors of Colorado Springs is in charge of arrangements.

    Our beloved wife, mother, sister and friend left this earth to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, after a 10 year struggle with ovarian cancer. Rebecca was a devoted stay-at-home mother who deeply loved each of her children and constantly did everything possible to promote their well being and help them grow to be successful adults. She was founder and president of the National Ovarian Coalition of Southern Colorado which provided support to women with ovarian cancer and their caregivers and promoted ovarian cancer awareness. She also worked as a medical assistant and helped her husband start two successful businesses.

    Rebecca was known for her gentle spirit, her lively sense of humor, and her genuine interest in every person she ever met. She loved everyone and reached out to comfort and encourage her husband, her children, her friends, and anyone she came across who was hurting. She truly exhibited the fruit of the Holy Spirit and was an inspiration to each of us. She will be deeply missed but we know that she is in a better place and finally free of her suffering.

    Survivors include her husband of 44 years, Benoni (Bud) Reynolds; children: Aaron Reynolds of Seattle, Wash., Tasha Reynolds of Seattle Wash., and Benjamin Reynolds of Loveland, Colo.; and her brother, Alan Milling of Meridian, Miss.

    She was preceded in death by her parents, Keith and Mahala Milling; and a son, Christopher Reynolds.

    Flowers can be sent to Swan Law Funeral Directors or contributions in lieu of flowers can be made to Pikes Peak Hospice and Palliative Care.

    Visitation will be Friday, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Swan Law Funeral Directors, at 501 Cascade Avenue.
