From Alan Landros...


Sharon Reynolds, BHS '64, passed away at her home in Ventura on August 31, 2013, of apparent heart failure. Sharon was a Social Worker for Los Angeles County for 30 years. She never married nor had any children. Sharon was always fiercely independent throughout her life. She had a beautiful sense of decoration and color combinations.

Sharon Kay Reynolds was born May 12, 1946 in Glendale. She had one brother, Rick, four years younger than her. Sharon grew up in Burbank and attended Thomas Jefferson Elementary, John Muir Junior High, and Burbank High. During her senior year at BHS in 1963/64 Sharon was the Head Songleader. She first attended University of the Pacific, and then transferred to U.C. Davis.

Sharon was predeceased by both parents about ten years ago. She is survived by her brother, Rick Reynolds, BHS '68, his wife, Linda Jellings Reynolds, BHS '70, and their three children and five grandchildren - who are Sharon's two nieces and one nephew, and three great-nieces and two great-nephews - all loved by Sharon. She will be sadly missed by her family.
