Reta was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She touched the lives of everyone who was lucky enough to know her. She was an avid reader and loved to travel with her family. Her church family was also very important to her. She was an active member of Court Street Baptist Church in Auburn and was involved in many ministries, among them a weekly bible study for the woman of Androscoggin County Jail. She also taught Sunday school for many years.

She will be deeply missed by her family and many dear friends.
