Judith “Judi” Diane Reynolds • January 30, 2021
The most beautiful mother and wife, Judith “Judi” Diane Reynolds, entered heaven January 30, 2021 while surrounded by her children as they sang Elvis’ version of Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art. We believe the singing continued upon her joyous reunion with parents, Harry and Delia Bridges; husband Harry Mitchell; and husband Ed Lewis.
Judi was born in Carbondale IL and spent her teenage years in Northwest Indiana where she attended Emerson High School. She married Harry Mitchell at the age of 16 and they raised 5 children together who survive to treasure her memory; sons, Patrick Mitchell, David Mitchell (Monica), H. Sean Mitchell (Tiffany); daughters, Diane Hodges (Rex), Mary Mitchell (James Wirtes); step daughters, Renee Thompson, Raina Lansing; granddaughter Amber Morse; and 16 other grandchildren; and 8 great grandchildren.
Judi has resided in Pensacola, FL since 2004 where she and devoted husband, Ray Reynolds, are active members of the Church of Christ at Milestone. She was also a life member of the Indiana University Alumni Association and a member of the Panhandle Cruisers. Judi worked as a teacher for the Gary Community School Corporation for 28 years where she enriched the lives of many adult and young learners. However, her impact on earth extended far beyond the confines of cinderblock schoolhouses.
Judi was a giver and generously shared her time and talents with those she loved, and those in need. She cooked, wrote poetry, cleaned, visited, sent cards, financially aided, and prayed to show her love, and to share the love of Christ with others. She also gifted others with her marvelous sense of humor and uninhibited laughter. Judi was an altogether lovely woman of God that will be dearly missed and forever adored.
