Aunt Reba was such a wonderful person whom Lee and I loved very dearly. Our prayers are with her family. Sorry for your loss
Reba was a beautiful soft spoken lady. V.T was my 2nd cousin. I visited them when they lived In Martin Box and in Little Rock, Also, visited with Reba after V T passed away. She was a great cook, and always made her guests feel welcome. The last time I saw her was at her class reunion at the high school in Marshall several years ago I talked to her and invited her to a Cypert family reunion before Frenchy passed away. She sounded so happy and was enjoying life. I had called and talked to her after the class reunion and she had reconnected with a class mate and they had been going out to dinner and movies!Movies
This dear lady was so beautiful in and out. I had the privilege of knowing her in the Martin Box community, and her family. I want the family know my condolences and love goes to each of you.
Prayers of comfort for family and friends
My sympathy goes out to Jack and Becky and their families. I have wonderful memories of your mother's gentle voice, kindness and lovely smile. I remember her from my childhood at Martin Box and her warm welcome into her home when Daddy was hospitalized in Little Rock. Hers was a life well-lived.
I am so sorry to learn of Reba’s passing. She was very special to me when I was growing up. Sending love and prayers.
Reba is my precious step-mother who was married to my daddy Frenchy Thevenet for 9 years. They loved and cherished their time together after both had lost their spouses. I will miss you Reba. You loved me unconditionally and I love you.
