 “I Have Fought a Good Fight, I Have Finished My Course, I Have Kept the Faith.” II Timothy 4:7


 A TIME TO BE BORN
 Annie Bell Reynolds was born on May 15, 1952, in Brunswick, Georgia, to the late Carrie Bell Reynolds and Vernon Clements. She was a source of love and inspiration to her family. She was one of six children. Her mother died at an early age, leaving her grandmother, Ms. Adline Higginbotham, to raise her and her siblings until she passed prior to Annie Bell graduating from high school. She was preceded in death by her older brothers – Joseph Reynolds, Jr., and Charles Clements (Blanche), and older sisters – Emma Pippen and Betty Jean Pryor.


 A TIM E TO BE EDUCATED
 Annie Bell attended Perry Elementary School and Risley High School, where she was a majorette in the high-stepping marching band. After graduating from Risley High School, she attended Georgia College in Milledgeville, GA.


 A TIME TO LOVE AND NURTURE 
Annie Bell lived and loved. She was always known for her love of family. She was very fond of her nieces and nephews and spent lots of time with them. She expanded her family with the birth of her daughter, Amber Brooke Reynolds, her only child. During her spare time, she developed a keen interest in photography and was never caught without her camera. She later took on a love for pets and always had a pet. She cared so much for her pets, that she would take them for morning drives, daily walks, road trips, and everywhere she went. Her favorite was named Roxie, and when she lost her, she immediately adopted others to love.

 
A TIM E TO WORK 
 Annie Bell started her employment at Glynn-Brunswick Memorial Hospital as a Nursing Assistant. She changed careers and was later employed by the United States Postal Service as a mail carrier. She earned a route on St. Simons Island and enjoyed it because of the personal relationship she developed with many residents on the route. Anything Annie Bell became involved in, she took it seriously. She joined the mail carriers’ union, NALC Branch 313, for the United States Postal Service, and eventually became an officer, advocating for the rights of mail carriers at conferences held in various cities. After working for over 30 years, she retired in 2015 to enjoy other things life had to offer. 


A TIME OF AFFILIATION 
Annie Bell became a member of Order of the Eastern Star of Brunswick, Virgin Chapter #58. She elevated herself to the position of Worthy Matron and represented her chapter by attending many state, regional, and national conferences as a delegate. Other positions she held were Past District Worthy Matron – Brunswick District #7; Past Loyal Lady Ruler – Anna O. Clark Assembly #271, Order of the Golden Circle; Past Most Ancient Matron – Lady Esther Court #3, Heroines of Jericho; Past Princess Commandress – Evelyn Bennett Court #3, Cyrene Crusaders; and Past Princess Commandress – Amman Court #145. 


A TIME TO BE BORN AGAIN 
Annie Bell joined Mt. Olive Baptist Church at an early age. Attending church was instilled in her at a very early age in life by her mother and grandmother, and she continued throughout her life to be an active member. 


A TIME TO CHERISH 
Annie Bell answered the Lord’s call on Thursday, November 25, 2021, and went home to be with the Lord, because we know by faith, “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” She left behind family members to cherish her memory. They consist of her loving daughter – Amber Reynolds; her sisters – Sarah Reynolds Floyd of Brunswick, GA, Carolyn Reynolds Mifflin (Clarence) of Hawkinsville, GA, Helen Martin (Robert), and Janie Mae Hollis; her brothers – Darrell Reynolds, Sr. (Brenda) of McDonough, GA, and Gerald Billingsley (Jackie) of Key West, FL; and brother-in-law – Benny Pryor. Along life’s journey, Annie Bell gained a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives who will also cherish her memory. She is cherished by some, loved by many, but forgotten by none
