The world got a little darker on Monday, Aug. 3, 2009. Reylin Coral Ryan left us to be with God. She loved her life and family, and everyone she came in contact with. Everyone that knew her was more blessed by knowing her.
The Guest Book is expired.
She was kind, compassionate and selfless, as well as an excellent poker player. She was very active in the community, giving freely of her time and skills. Her life was an example of how life should be lived.
Reylin worked for the Bozeman Daily Chronicle advertising department for nearly three years, handling national accounts and inside sales.
Survivors include her husband, Jody Ryan of Belgrade; parents, Regi (Wade) Johnson of Logan, and Theo Nehl of Helena; siblings, Coleman Nehl (Liz Luetkehans) of Bozeman, and Nikki Nehl of Helena; step-siblings, Amber (Max) Blodgett of Three Forks, Jason Johnson and Dani Lundgren of Bozeman; mother- and father-in-law, Connie and Dan Ryan of Manhattan; grandparents, Coral Holland of Bozeman and Mary Ann Ryan and Bennie Lee Smets of Deer Lodge; sisters-in-law, Mary (Ken) Vanderby of Manhattan, and Shannon (Mark) Solyst of Bozeman; along with many cherished aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as many friends.
A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, at First Lutheran Church in Bozeman.
Memorial contributions may be sent to the Lupus Foundation of America, P.O. Box 631047, Baltimore, MD 21263-1047.
"She's my little Rey of sunshine, my little Rey of light, my little inspiration that brightens up the darkest night. Her laughter warms the coldest room, her smile's as sweet as honey. My little Rey of sunshine made even darkest days turn sunny."
Reylin, you will be missed.
