Dolores Ann Reynolds

Dolores Ann Archer Dillon Reynolds, 92, loving Mother, Sister, Aunt, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, and Great-Great-Grandmother gained her angel wings on November 22, 2022. Dolores was born May 18, 1930, and was preceded in death by her parents, Johnny and Ruby Archer, her husband, Raymond Reynolds, and a son, John Michael Dillon.

Dolores is survived by her sister, Linda Archer Wood and husband Steve; a daughter, Cindy Dillon; her sons Denny Dillon and wife Melody, Rex Reynolds and wife Tammy, and Sam Reynolds and wife Julia. Her daughters-in-law, Deborah Dillon and Vicky Reynolds remained close to her. She was the proud grandmother of Jim Bob Jennings, Tammy Steinert, Dustin Dillon, Dawn Dillon, Michael Dillon, Josh Reynolds, Holly Reynolds, Jeremy Reynolds, Adam Reynolds, Shane Reynolds, and Aaron Lynch. Her legacy also includes the following great-grandchildren: Parker, Samantha, Birkleigh, James, Justin, Christian, Bryan, Tanner, Tyler, Gentry, Chesna, Anna, Chance, Cassidy, Cole, Chloe, Coy, Kinsley, Ava, and Jude. Great-great-grandchildren are Abigail and Alexander. She had too many friends to name them all, but the family would especially like to acknowledge Ann Cook for her dear friendship.

Dolores worked very hard all of her life at the City of Amarillo, Hartley County, Randall County, Dr. Brooker’s office, United Market Street, and as an Avon and Mary Kay Representative. In these many jobs, she worked on her steady feet in jobs ranging from cook and waitress to crossing guard and jailer. She lived to share her stories of living through the Great Depression, a World War, and many, many tales like learning to fly an airplane as a teenager and delivering a grandson in the back of an ambulance. Her greatest passion and favorite job was to be the best mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. She was a queen to us all and will be terribly missed.

Graveside service will be at 2:00 p.m., Friday, December 2, 2022, at Dreamland Cemetery, 26500 S. US Highway 87, Canyon, Texas.

    My beautiful sweet neighbor for about 7 years was the special time that I needed a person like Dee to raise my spirits and give me the confidence that I needed in myself. To see that smile as I always looked for her to reccomend the best breads at MarketStreet and to slice it just right (she was a perfectionist) and oh how I love her being my Avon Lady! She is loved and respected by many and will be in our thoughts and memories always.

    Dee was a person who loved and cared for so many. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.

    Grandma without you we wouldn’t be.
    Though you were raised during a time of great uncertainity, you prevailed to see four more generations of your family tree.
    No one, but you will truly know or understand all of your life’s pitfalls and glories. Yet, we’ll continue to share all we know of your life’s story.
    Your spirit is now free to be with the loved ones who passed before you.
    As our eyes fill with tears and our hearts weigh heavy, we will remember your love and know that we are your legacy.
    We love you and will miss you!
