The Ellis family has been a "special" part of my life since my brother married one of the sisters, Josie. Always warm, friendly, and caring, all of them have left their mark on my life. Reba leaves a great legacy of faithfulness to family and friends and to her Lord. I can only imagine her joy in being reunited with those she loved. We have hope through our Savior that we will be with her again. May God comfort her family in the days ahead. Esther Martin Moeckl

Lydia and Dennis

Terry and I extend our prayers and condolences to you in the home going of Reba. I remember coming over many times to the Turbeville house to eat and have great fellowship. Reba made you feel right at home. Now she is home and resting with her Lord. Thanks Lydia for sharing your mom with Terry and I, love you and praying for you.

Such a beautiful and gracious lady; one of my favs growing up in Greenwood PH Church. As a teenager, her home after Church on Sunday night was one of my favorite places to be. My condolences to family and friends during this time of loss. My prayers are going up for you.

By way of introduction, I am the youngest son of J.T. & Lucille Smith, formerly of Hampton, Virginia and the Greenwood Pentecostal Holiness Church in Hampton. I just wanted to let you know that I was sorry to hear of Reba's death. I know it has been a difficult year for your family with the death of Sam in April and now the death of Reba. I want you to know that your family will be in my thoughts during this difficult time. Take care and best wishes to all of you.
