Alice M. Reynolds, 97, formerly of Lincoln


BUXTON, Maine — Alice Mae (James) Reynolds passed away Dec. 8, 2022, in Buxton, Maine. She was born March 6, 1925, in Burlington Vt., daughter of Orville and Ellen (Goss) James.

Alice was a master seamstress, making peignoir sets sold in Manhattan, N.Y., while working for VanRalt of Middlebury, Vt. Alice also worked for Kennedy brothers and in later years she made teddy bears for Vermont Teddy Bear Company.

In her spare time, Alice loved to travel, garden, paint, sew, knit, crochet, embroider, make jewelry, scrapbook and mostly recently she learned to diamond dot embroidery. On average, she read three to four novels per week as an avid reader.

Alice was preceded in death by her husband, Roger Reynolds, to whom she was married for 53 years before he passed in 1999; son Stephen Reynolds, who passed this past March; brother Bill James; and sisters Catherine (June) Moore, Anna Wells and Jane DeCell.

She is survived and greatly missed by her sister Ellen (Pat) James of Hinesburg Vt.; her son Jeffrey Reynolds and his wife Laurie of Buxton, Maine; her daughters, Julie Curtis and Judy Booth of Lincoln Vt.; her daughter-in-law Lisa Reynolds of North Carolina; her grandchildren James Curtis of Bristol Vt., Jesse Reynolds of Charlotte, Vt., Amanda Ford of North Carolina, Stephanie Booth and Benjamin Booth of Plattsburgh, N.Y.; Justin Reynolds of Biddeford, Maine; and Jason Reynolds of Buxton, Maine. She also had nine great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews and friends.

Alice loved flowers and birds so a celebration of her life will take place in late spring or early summer when the flowers are in bloom and the birds are singing. ◊
