Marcellette "Marcie" Reynolds died peacefully on February 2, 2017 at Christopher House in Austin. She was 88 years old, a beautiful woman, beloved mother and a joy to everyone. Her life was varied and rich.
Born to Claudia and Paul Hansen, she spent her youth in Tulsa and Verden, Oklahoma, Indian Territory, post-Depression. In high school, she joined a revue that entertained WWII soldiers - she was the dancer, Patti Page was the singer. Moving to Austin, her first job was with the Welcome Wagon, later a librarian at Lamar Jr High, a banker at Lamar Savings, a medical secretary and a columnist/writer for several newspapers. In 1978, Marcie and her family were seen regularly on a national Ivory Soap commercial.
She and her husband Bob loved to travel and were avid fans of UT, Reagan and McCallum High Schools. They were their children's number one fans, welcoming all of their friends (and pets) with open arms.
Preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Robert A. Reynolds, and son Scotty Senter, Marcie is survived by sons Jerry Senter and wife Kathleen, Mike Senter and wife Cecelia, Sandy Senter and wife Rita, daughter-in-law Truda Senter and daughter Marrie Reynolds Aldridge and husband Lance. She was blessed with 7 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
