Juliana Reynolds - 1917-2009
Juliana Reynolds, 92, of Roseville, Minn., formerly of Ashland, died Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2009.
She was the beloved wife of the late James Reynolds and the mother of Dianne Thovson (Allan) and Roger Reynolds (Sherry); grandmother of Katie Thovson, James Thovson (Katherine), Scott Reynolds and Marc Reynolds; great-grandmother of Logan Thovson, Kyra Ann Thovson and Alexandra Kay Thovson.
She was a special friend to many in Silver Bay, Minn., and Davenport, Iowa, including Hannah and Bailey Maberry, Teresa Louw and nephew John Bloom of Las Vegas.
To her family she was known as “Granny.” Many family members gathered for her 92nd birthday on Oct. 4, 2009.
Juliana was preceded in death by her husband, James Reynolds; sisters Mary Watson Foley and Jane Gault Bloom; and dog Griz.
Juliana was born in 1917 in Mason County, Ky., the daughter of Roger Mungo Peers and Alice Dallas Watson. She was the middle of three daughters, and all attended Maysville High School. Juliana attended Moorhead College and a business college. In 1938 while working with Rolling Steel Co. and Armco, she met James Reynolds.
After James’ three years of service in the Navy aboard the USS Iowa, James and Juliana were married on Oct. 23, 1945, in Covington, Ky. With their two young children and five other young families, James and Juliana moved with a caravan to Babbitt, Minn. Juliana, a true Southerner, described it as “moving in a wagon train.” Babbitt was a town of new homes built for employees of Reserve Mining, a subsidiary of Armco. After the first winter, half of the families from Kentucky had returned to Ashland. The Reynoldses nearly became true Minnesotans and moved to Silver Bay, Minn., on the shores of Lake Superior, in 1954.
Juliana was involved in the American Cancer Society and a volunteer at the Burns and Christensen Hospital and New Lake View Memorial Hospital in Two Harbors. Juliana enjoyed leading and participating in activities with elders who spoke Finnish and other Scandinavian languages, “just so that they knew someone was thinking of them.” James and Juliana were also active members of the United Protestant Church of Silver Bay and the Silver Bay Country Club.
