Dovie was born near the community of Mountain Home on Aug. 7, 1932 to the late Mr. Hollie Bowers Marshall and Mrs. Myrtle (Jones) Marshall. She went to her heavenly home on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 at Healdton.
Dovie was raised in the Mountain Home area graduating high school from there in 1951. Attending church at Asphaltum, she met the love of her life, Mr. Ray R. Reynolds and they were united in marriage on March 23, 1955 at the First Baptist Church of Healdton.
They made their home in this area, initially residing on the original Reynolds family homestead, which was located east of Loco. In the year of 1964, they moved their home south of Pinto and have since remained. Dovie was truly a virtuous homemaker, always preparing three meals a day. She also made most of her children's clothing. Her door was always open to anyone, inviting many others into her home, always providing love and hospitality.
Dovie always had a beautiful garden, putting up canned and frozen goods and sharing fresh produce with others. Later in life she enjoyed making baby quilts and never met a stranger. She was always a very generous christian lady who loved and cared for many. She will be remembered for making the best sweet tea you would ever drink, but mostly for always being a faithful prayer warrior. Dovie was a faithful lifelong member of the Asphaltum Worship Center.
