Henry & Judith Reese
Judith P. Reese November 02, 1942 - December 24, 2020
It is with great sadness that the Reese family announce the passing of Henry Reese who passed away on Tuesday December 22, 2020 and Judith Reese who passed on Thursday, December 24, 2020 both following a short illness. Henry was born in Columbus, MS to the late Walter and Mary (Greene) Reese on April 23, 1941. Judith was born in Taunton, MA to the late John and Mary (Mimosa) Martin on November 2, 1942. Henry and Judith shared many values but family was number one for both of them, they had no greater joy than watching their family expand, first with their Grandchildren and then their Great-Grandchildren.
They also both loved traveling and were able to take many trips with their families. Their favorite trips were Family Fun Fun and Cruises.
Henry served in the Navy for 15 years and always had a deep love of the ocean. He always said he just felt at peace on the water, more so than anywhere else. Their grandchildren were lucky enough to have experienced being on the water with him.
He had a long career at Franklin Sports, where he made lifelong friendships.
Judith worked as a Seamstress in the Garment District for several years and assisted in raising the coming generations of her family. She was more relaxed at home with her friends and family hosting family BBQ's and gatherings were truly her greatest happiness.
They are survived by their three children; Mark D. Reese and wife Theresa, Debra M. Skidmore and husband Donald, Donna M. Reese Graves, siblings; Elda P. Martin of East Providence and Aldina P, Lopes of Houston, TX, Ricky E. Reese and wife Bobbie of Columbus, MS., Barbara F. Huelsmann and husband David of Omaha, NE., and Mary D.
