Reggie,
You have been a part of my life for 40+ years. I enjoyed every minute of the times we spent together. You opened my heart and mind to nature, birding,and cats. You were a magnificent package of naughty and nice. Thank you for the memories.

I rode the a dreadful yellow bus to St. Mary's High School (when it was still called St. Mary's) with Reggie for four years and we were also in the school plays together. Lost track of her but was really looking forward to seeing her again at our 50th reunion this October. Now I guess I'll have to wait a little longer.

So nice to learn that she led a full and giving life.

God Bless

Reggie's passing is a great loss of a good friend. Her wisdom, kindness and generosity were always an inspiration to those of us who worked with her in the field of environmental educaion. We remember her with love and gratitude.

Reggie was my first female friend when I arrived in New Jersey twenty-six years ago. She helped me prepare for our wedding in generous fashion. I wore her diamond necklace on that special day. She was the only non-family member at our wedding and reception. Her presence made our wedding all the more special.

Yesterday, at the church when Jerry said that Reggie was a virtual Rolodex of information about those who had passed through SOC's network, I thought immediately of how true that was. But Reggie was a virtual Rolodex before virtual took on its modern meaning and before Rolodex was invented.

I will miss you Reggie. I will miss your wit and wisdom.
With love, Judy

Reg and I worked together at the School of Conservation for nearly two decades, but we were far more than fellow employees. Our apartments shared a common wall (thin) in one of the old CCC buildings on Sequoya campus at the school. This made for a special closeness not shared by anyone else. As my nearest neighbor, Reggie was part of my family as she watched my daughters develop from birth.
Under the direction of Dr. John Kirk (I could never call him "DK" as Reggie did), Reggie, Jerry Schierloh and I formed a team that was unique in the environmental education world. Lots of environmental centers had science and recreation staff, but few, if any, had a humanities/social studies specialist. Reggie filled this role as no one else could. Tens of thousands of kids and adults who spent time in residence at SOC will remember their experience in Degroat Cabin spinning wool. Thanks to Reggie's work as SOC librarian, teachers and graduate students were able to utilize the collection in the LB Sharp Memorial Library to research a wide variety of environmental topics. She even used her cats as part of her humanities lesson.
Many people are unlikely to know that Reggie was a member of the Nordic Ski Patrol. For years Reggie accompanied groups of cross country skiers on tours over trails in Sussex County.
She was a woman of many talents. There was no one like her. I will miss her a great deal.
