On Friday, August 30, 2019, Marilyn Miller Reynolds, loving wife, devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother, passed away peacefully in her home at the age of 84.
Marilyn was born on December 19, 1934, in New Orleans, LA to Emile and Virgie Miller. She was a proud graduate of Sacred Heart School where she remained active throughout her life. On July 23, 1955, she married the love of her life, Lou Reynolds, Sr. They were blessed with three sons, Lou (Cindi), Michael (Brigid), and Kevin. She was a dedicated grandmother of eight, Brittany Thomas (Donnie), Matthew, Ryan, Rhett, Riley, Keely, Katherine, and Ross, and an adoring great grandmother of two, Mia and Callie.
Boo, as she was lovingly referred to, had a passion for life. She was an avid dancer, had countless friends, and an extraordinary love of Mardi Gras. She was a member of the Krewes of Iris, Isis, and Elks. She was known for her many years of dedication and service to Archbishop Rummel High School and St. Mary Magdalen School, where she will be forever remembered as St. Nicholas. She was the recipient of the prestigious Order of Saint Louis IX award. Boo loved the limelight, as was evident in her annual Labor Day performances at the Broadwater. She belonged to numerous ladies’ organizations and Bonko groups, and she was always known to be “the life of the party”. She had an enthusiasm for life that was surpassed by none. She will be forever missed.
A funeral service will be held on Friday, September 6th, 2019, at St. Mary Magdalen Church, 6425 West Metairie Avenue. Visitation will be from 10 am till noon followed by Mass.
