Constance Lee “Connie” Reynolds, 62, passed away peacefully at her home in Pontotoc on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. Born December 17, 1956 in San Diego, CA, she was the daughter of the late William Douglas and the late Zada Johnson Douglas. She was of Baptist faith, and was retired after working many years as a cafeteria cook for the Houston and South Pontotoc school system. She loved crossword puzzles and sewing, and everyone who knew her knew she loved the color red. She was also a diehard Elvis Presley fan. She loved his music, both his gospel albums and especially his live concert recordings. Connie was blessed with 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. This certainly kept her busy, and she absolutely loved being a mamaw. Connie had a very rare gift of constantly being positive. She was very spirited and had an entertaining sense of humor. A very humble and content woman, she never let anything get her down. She could make anyone laugh, but was never afraid to speak her mind.
