Marjorie Louise Reynolds was born May 5, 1926 in Evanston, Illinois. She grew up in Dallas, Texas with her brother, Howard, and younger sister, Heleneean. When she was nee, her mother fell and sustained a "serious bruise" oneer leg which developed an infection and ultimately took her life in the days before antibiotics. Her father re-married and another sister, Barbara, was added to the family. She graduated from Highland Park High School in 1943 and at the age of 17, married Charles W. Mundy. They lived briefly at Cherry Point, North Carolina while he was in Marine Corps training. After the war, they lived in Dallas, Texas and had two children. They subsequently divorced at a time when divorce was rare. Having few employable skills, she attended secretarial school. These business skills would serve her well throughout her life when she later began a small business, Executive Suite in Houston, Texas. She had a remarkable friendship with Anga Mundy, her first husband's second wife. Anga was, ineer opinion, a model step-mother to her children and they subsequently became close friends. After retiring, she moved to North Carolina and lived with her daughter and two grandchildren. She is preceded ineeath by her brother and his wife, Howard and Judith Reynolds, her sister and her husband, Jack and Heleneeaneeynolds O'Dell, and her friend, Anga Mundy aneex-husband, Chuck Mundy.
