REYNOLDS,
Verna E.
(Plain)

Our beloved wife, mother and grandmother passed away on September 6, 2018 in Spokane after a courageous battle with metastatic cancer.

Verna Eileen Plain, 90, was born August 6, 1928 in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, Canada, the daughter of Etta Melinda Tabb and Leonard Joseph Plain. She was raised and educated in Saskatchewan, Alberta and White Rock, B.C. At her request, no services are planned.

After she passed her equivalency exams, she trained as a comptometer operator and worked for several years before she met and married William H. Reynolds on December 21, 1951, in White Rock, B.C. They lived in North Vancouver, B.C. where Bill worked for Cominco Limited and where they welcomed their first two sons, Kenneth and Terrence. After Bill was transferred with Cominco to the United States, they made their home in Spokane since 1956. Verna gave birth to their third son, Glenn, in 1961. She was an excellent homemaker and a master gardener, canning from her ever-expanding garden. A voracious reader, she also enjoyed bowling, knitting, and crossword puzzles. Verna took great pride in the beautiful flowers in her yard and even greater pride in her family. She celebrated her 90th birthday last month with her husband and sons.

Surviving Verna are her husband of 66 years, William H. Reynolds; and a son, Kenneth W. Reynolds both of Spokane; a son and daughter-in-law, Terrence J. and Karen (O'Brien) Reynolds and two grandsons, Timothy O. and Michael C. Reynolds, all of Boise; a brother, James Plain, Surrey, B.C., and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her son, Glenn, her brother Charles Plain and her sister, Irene Plain Saffin.
