Died: Monday, January 07, 2013
Loveina E. “Dyne” McReynolds, 92, Walworth, died Monday, Jan. 7, 2013, at Aurora Lakeland Medical Center in Elkhorn.
She was born May 24, 1920, in Platteville, to parents Frank and Edna Manuel Goss. Here she was raised and attended school, graduating from Platteville High School. She received her teaching degree from Wisconsin State Teachers College, now the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Dyne married Dale C. McReynolds on June 8, 1943, at Kahoka, Mo.
She began her teaching career at LaFarge and Dodgeville. The couple moved to Walworth in 1947 where Dyne first worked for Spruce Realty before beginning her career in 1954, teaching third grade in the Walworth Grade School for 27 years. She retired in 1981 after teaching elementary school for more than 30 years.
Dyne was an avid reader and crossword puzzle solver. She always looked forward to watching sports on TV, especially her favorite baseball. She enjoyed knitting and different types of craft work. In earlier years she loved gardening, decorating and entertaining at her house in the country and always being able to visit with her many friends in the community and most recently at Golden Years. She loved teaching and always enjoyed hearing about her past students and their accomplishments. She always looked forward to the many spring trips south with Mac at the beginning of baseball season. Dyne loved all animals, especially her many cats and dogs who were always a big part of her life, and most recently looked forward to visits from her “granddog” Charlie at Golden Years. Dyne always greeted everyone with a big smile and will be greatly missed by all those who knew her and loved her, especially her family. She will always be remembered for her big heart and her kindness and caring for others.
Dyne is survived by her son, Tom (Jeanie) McReynolds, Fontana; a cherished grandson, Tom (Christina), Walworth; two sisters-in-law, Geneva (Harold “Huck”) Beals and Esther McReynolds, both of Platteville; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Dale “Mac”; two brothers, Richard and Frank “Peck;” and a sister, Freda.
