Inez Nutter Reynolds (birth name was Swedish- Ina Singna) grew up in Nebraska as a member of one the oldest and most pioneering families of Buffalo County.
After marriage (September 1, 1914) at Kearney, Buffalo County, Nebraska, to her childhood sweetheart (they both as teachers) homesteaded and taught, eventually living at Ziebach County, South Dakota.
In search of greener pastures, they moved to Corvallis Oregon in 1942, 'a land of milk and honey' according to Inez. It was here she and her husband lived out their lives in happiness, harmony, and bliss.
Inez was a accomplished cook and homemaker. At the Benton County Fair, the cry, "Mrs. Reynolds Won" was heard, in regard to her baked goods; her pies were to die for and she won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd many times for various entries. She learned to cook on the prairies of the United States, farm cooking, the best kind, everything made from scratch and delicious. The remainder of her time was spent with ladies groups, gardening, church, and fishing the Alsea, with her husband Everette.
Mrs. Reynolds put in long hours, working beside her husband, and their employees at the Reynolds Food Market (entrance to Avery Park) Corvallis Oregon.
Inez was a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, and dear friend to many. Her sudden death in a car accident was a shock and a tragedy! Totally incomprehensible to family and friends.
Died at Decatur, Illinois (car accident). Admitted to Decatur and Macon Hospital June 21, 1968 at 5:55 P.M., transport by ambulance. Died later due to complications.
Laid to Rest July 18, 1968
De Moss-Durden Funeral Home (Corvallis)
From her funeral service- "Inez's love for her husband and family was the strong, quiet and patient kindů She and her husband Everette shared much of life's fullness together, the love to travel, and living in the out-of-doors (Rving). They often took time to read to one another and enjoy the great music of the masters together.
During the hard times in South Dakota, in the 1930's, Inez took up teaching, once again though, her devotion of heart was her husband and family.
As a mother, she was quick to love and forgive. She was sensitive and proud of her children, and kept around the house, many sentimental things that reminded her of their triumphs.
She delighted in the out-of-doors and loved God's creation and being a part of it. During a recent fishing trip on the Alsea River it took some coaxing on Everette's part to have Inez return home.
Inez loved the Willamette Valley and upon returning home from a recent trip to the East, she said to Everette, as they passed over the Santiam Pass, 'I feel like this is my home.'
Inez loved animals and growing things, she kept house plants and pets- all living things which needed care and attention."
