Anita T. Reynolds, 87, of Northern Tier Way, and formerly of Reynolds Road, West Chazy, passed away Feb. 2, 2018 at the CVPH Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.
She was born in Plattsburgh on April 2, 1930, the daughter of Fred and Colombe (Lejeune) LaRose.
Anita married Jacob Reynolds on Sept. 25, 1947. After 64 years of marriage, Jacob passed away on Jan. 27, 2012.
Anita attended OLVA in Plattsburgh and Peru Central School. Prior to retirement, with her spouse by her side, she worked the family farm, Reynolds Dairy. She was also employed by Chazy Apple Orchard for 30 years as Quality Control Inspector and was known as "Miss. Anita". She was an avid volunteer and loved working with children. Anita was a woman of faith who enjoyed reading the bible, watching birds in nature and she always took time to "smell the flowers". Above all else was her love of family. Spending time with her grandchildren and attending family functions would always bring a smile to her face.

Anita was predeceased by her four sisters.
