Mrs. Jennie Griffin Reynolds

Mrs. Jennie Griffin Reynolds of Roopville GA, born September 25, 1938 in Heard County, passed away Wednesday, November 7, 2018.

She is preceded in death by her late husband Bobby Reynolds, her parents Doris and Moville Griffin, and her brother(s), Jepp, Roy, Ray, and Eugene Griffin.

She is survived by her son Tony (McCullers) Reynolds of Carrollton GA, daughter Jan (Greg) Pate of Whitesburg GA, son Stan (Jackie) Reynolds of Carrollton GA, and son Michael (Kathy) Reynolds of Roopville GA.

She is also loved and greatly missed by her sister Hazel (Junior) Huddleston of Phoenix City AL, sister-n-law(s) Elaine Griffin and Sissy Griffin, 8 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren.

Jennie was a faithful member of Calvary Baptist Church in Carrollton, GA. After losing her husband Bobby Reynolds in August 1966, Jennie raised her 4 children as a single mother, working until retiring from Atlanta Dairies in Carrollton GA in 1991.

She was a God fearing, strong willed, good hearted woman. So much so that God blessed her with 2 hearts!

In February 1996, Jennie was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and was told she would need a heart transplant. July 4th 2002 the Lord sent an Angel her way and she received her brand new heart. The next battle she had to face came August 2015 when she was told she had Cancer. Not letting this break her spirit, she went through months of treatment, chemo and radiation, until she was finally cleared of it.

Unfortunately the cancer came back in 2016, but Jennie’s strong will refused to back down, so she once again began treatments. After a 3rd diagnosis of Cancer returning, Jennie knew this fight was no longer hers to fight. She made peace with the cards that had been dealt to her and she gave it all to the Lord. On November 7, 2018 God granted her final rest and she received her wings that she so richly deserved.

Her funeral service will be held on Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 2:00 PM at Martin & Hightower with Rev. Kerry Cooke and Rev. J.W. Daniels officiating, followed by a grave side service at Carroll Memory Gardens.

The viewing/visitation will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 2:00 PM until 5:00 PM.

Pallbearers will be Joshawa Arnell, Jarrett Arnell, Chris Bentley, Mike Reese, Rick Frashier, and Jamie Griffin.
