Katherine Reynolds Obituary

With profound sadness, Katherine (Parker) Reynolds passed away peacefully at UMass-Memorial Hospital on Wednesday January 10, 2024. She was 75.

Katherine was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, neighbor and friend.

Katherine was born in Worcester to Fred and T. Rita (Hackett) Parker. She earned her bachelors and masters degrees at Worcester State University. Shortly after graduation she married her husband Richard.

She shared her love of reading for over 25 years with students in the Grafton school system. Upon retirement she traveled extensively and became an ambassador to the world making and maintaining friendships across continents including in Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Ireland, which remain to this day. Her artistic talents included working with stained glass and foil printing.

Katherine spent summers on the Cape providing countless memories for her son Keith revolving around food, family, and friends. The soothing waters provided an elixir far superior to any prescription written by medical professionals. She battled and overcame many health challenges over the course of her life.

She leaves her husband of 53 years, Richard Reynolds; her son Keith and his wife Emily, and their son Max, all of Colorado. 

Katherine’s funeral will take place Saturday, January 20, with a calling hour in St. George’s Church, 38 Brattle St., at 9 a.m., followed immediately by a Mass in the Church. Burial in St. John’s Cemetery will take place at the convenience of the family.
