Until We Meet Again

Our wife, mother, sister and dearest friend has passed through this mortal trial.
We will miss her until we meet again.

Ruth Marlene Reynolds made her journey home to our loving Heavenly Father during the early morning hours of October 4, 2014, after a courageous battle with stomach cancer. She was born to Murray and Marilin Fisher on August 18, 1954, in Englewood California. She spent most of her early years in northern California where she met and fell in love with her eternal companion Roy Vernon Reynolds Jr. They were sealed for time an eternity on March 24, 1973, in the Oakland California Temple. Together they raised four wonderful children. Marlene had a love for life and adventure, she loved traveling in her motorhome with her family and exploring new places. It was her love of exploration that took her all over the world. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She joyfully served in many callings including three service missions. She had a strong testimony of the Gospel and a great love of the Temple, which she attended weekly. She was gifted with many attributes including a great sense of humor, if you doubted that she was funny, she would tell you. Another one of her gifts was her ability to create beautiful quilts. Through her membership in the quilting guild she developed many lasting friendships. Her capacity to love and humbly serve others was remarkable, she touched many lives. Of all the things she loved and all the lives she touched, family was always the most precious to her. She was a devoted mother and grandmother. Her 19 grandchildren all felt loved and cherished by their grandparents. They looked forward to special trips with grandma and grandpa each summer. She will be greatly missed until we meet again.
Marlene leaves behind her husband Roy Vernon Reynolds JR. Her daughters Jennell Evans (Joseph), Kristen Arave (Shane), and Kemberly Thompson (Justin). Her son Roy V. Reynolds III (Camille). Her 19 beloved grandchildren, and 9 siblings. She was preceded in death by her parents Murray Fisher, and Marilin Fisher Brown.
The family would like to offer a special thanks to Marlene’s sister Diane Elmer for her unending devotion to Marlene’s care in her last days. They would also like to thank all those who touched Marlene’s life including the medical staff at Dr. Hanson’s office and Intermountain Home Health and Hospice.
Funeral Services will be held at 11am, on Wednesday October 8, at the LDS Chapel on 331 South 50 West Kaysville, UT 84037. Friends and family may visit prior to the funeral from 9:30am-10:30am. Interment will be at the Kaysville City Cemetery.

Roy and I went to the Dr. Yesterday. Sence I broke my arm I have been off chemotherapy.well here it is 8weeks later.time to start up chemotherapy again..but instead of going back on chemotherapy the cancer has spread any is out of control. Long story short. If I don't do chemotherapy I have 1 month to live, with chemotherapy I have 1to 2 months. So we opted to not do any chemotherapy..I had no idea that I had such a short amount of time lift. However a few nights ago I was awaken with the filling that I was coming to the end of my life..I am ok with this, I just fill so bad for my family. I know I have said that we believe in God and that families can be together for all eternity. This time that we have here on this earth is just a class room, time for US to learn more about him and a time to learn how to be more loving, kind and excepting. I am not afraid of being dead but I am worried about going through the dieing process. Oh well. We want will take it day by day, min by min and. We have total trust in the Lord and that is what we will go by

Hum...How do you react to news, like you have 6 months to 1 year to live. And also my Dr. Said that she was being generous with her timing. She also told us that cancer likes to come back with a vengeance when you go off chemotherapy. Because of my broken arm I will be off chemotherapy for a full month or more. Because of the poor timing of my life I will go back on chemotherapy but one of the meds will not be given to me because of the side effects I had with it before. They feel that it was the cause of the weakness witch caused my fall. Let's hope and pray that this time it will work and I will have some what a good quality of life. It is rather mind blowing, thinking that I might be dead in less than 6  6months. I have been thinking of what I want to do with the time that I do have and the crazy thing is that all I want to do is go to Germany and see our son and daughter in law and our 4grandkids that are there. A nd to see and spend time with the family that is here but to also live my life as I have been. My family my means everything to me and I just hope that all of them know how much I love them.I have 19grandkids who I adore. I wish could be here for their weddings and to see my great grandkids. I know that families can be together in heaven and that is a comfort and blessing to me. So don't mourn or be sad for me because we will see each other and be together again. I love you all

I am thinking of just letting the cancer go and live each day to the fullest weather it is one year or more or less I will live the best I can. I know it sounds like made up my mind but I haven't  talked to the Dr.  Yet so we will see.  Live or not live

chemo 8 and the fall

Chemo 8 went well.  Then one night I got up to use the bathroom but then the great fall happened. I have become so weak that I have been falling. My legs have become very weak.I can't tell you how many times I have fallen. But that first fall I broke my arm. So now I'm wheelchair bound and no More chemotherapy until the arm is totally healed. So being stage 4with stomach cancer I have to wonder what the cancer is doing with no treatment. Is it growing out of control? However I am getting stronger and I feel so much better not having the chemotherapy in my body. I hope and pray that I won't be stuck in the wheelchair for ever but for now I have to use it....

CT Scan after 6 rounds of chemo

Well I am a bit bummed. The cancer has shrunken a small bit so that is good but now I have what may be cyst on my kidneys and in 3 weeks I will go in and have a scope so they can see my stomach and the cancer. I was hoping after 6 rounds of chemo that things would look better. Oh well it is what it is and I will continue on. I am just a bit bummed. And trusting in The Lord. What will be will be. I did not mean to put up this picture it is of Germany. I took a picture of me getting my chemo but I could not find it but Germany is much more beautiful
