Reba Rayman Obituary

Reba Carol Rayman passed away on January 7, 2023, at the age of 82 years. Reba was born on April 19, 1941 in St. Louis, MO to James Hershel and Mary Elizabeth Reynolds. In addition to her parents, she was pre-deceased by her brother, James (Ronnie); and sisters, Barbara and Marianne. Left behind to cherish her memory are her loving husband and best friend of 63 years, Robert Bruce; her sister, Patricia Simms and her family; her son and daughter-in-law, Robert and Maria and their children Matthew and Lauren; her daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer and Alan Cox and their children Emilee and Eli; and many other relatives. Reba’s family meant the world to her. She shared a very special love and companionship with her grandchildren. She loved them and they loved her to the moon and back. Their memories of her will last all of their lives. Over the years, Reba volunteered at several Cuyahoga Falls elementary schools. If you were a student at Richardson Elementary School in Cuyahoga Falls during the 1970’s, you will remember the Activities Program Reba created with parent and community volunteers who were part of the Richardson School Volunteer Program (RSVP). This program became a model for many other area schools as they expanded opportunities for children. For several years Reba was a hostess at the Village Gardens Restaurant and Pub in Cuyahoga Falls where she became friends with hundreds of people. Everyone remembers her as a “hugger” and no one was a stranger to her. She wanted everyone to become a part of her world and a good old-fashioned hug was her way of making that happen. Alzheimer’s took so much from her, but to all of us who loved and cherished her, she will always be “Still Reba,” the person who meant so much to us all. Reba’s family would like to sincerely thank the staff at Sunrise Senior Living and Traditions Health and Hospice Care for the outstanding care they provided her every single day. Calling hours for Reba are scheduled at the Ciriello and Carr Funeral Home on Portage Trail in Cuyahoga Falls, Thursday from 5 to 7p.m. Burial will take place at a date to be determined at Mount Peace Cemetery in Akron. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Reba’s memory to Pilgrim United Church of Christ in Cuyahoga Falls, Sunrise Senior Living in Cuyahoga Falls, Traditions Health and Hospice Care, or to a charity of your choice.
