Elizabeth Mary "Betty", "Bet" Reynolds, 91, of Compton, MD died on December 16, 2015 at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital surrounded by her loving family. She was born on June 15, 1924 in Brooklyn, NY to the late Albert Porter and Elizabeth Grissler Porter.
In 1944, Betty married her beloved husband, Victor Raymond Reynolds. They spent the first years of their raising their family in Weston, CT before moving permanently to Compton, MD. Together they celebrated over 69 wonderful years of marriage before Victor's passing in 2013.
She was a worldwide traveler, with some of her most memorable visits being in Scotland and Israel. Betty was an excellent cook and enjoyed having a cocktail. Her other hobbies included reading, swimming, listening to the 1940's music, especially Frank Sinatra. However, her family was her greatest pride and joy and she loved to spend time with them. She always made it a point to stay connected with everyone
Betty is survived by her children, Marianne Sabo (James) of Trumbull, CT, Nancy Santiago (Pablo) of Gainesville, VA, and Gary Reynolds (Theresa) of Leonardtown, MD; her sister, Barbara O'Kane of Toluca Lake, CA; 8 grandchildren; and 8 great grandchildren. In additions to her parents and husband, she is also preceded in death by her brother, Albert Porter.
All services will be private. Memorial contributions may be made to A.C.T.S., Post Office Box 54, Bushwood, MD 20618. ACTS volunteers supplied the wheel chairs so Betty had the mobility needed to live alone as long as she could. Arrangements by the Brinsfield Funeral Home, P.A., Leonardtown, MD.
