Obituary

TALLEY, Reba V. “Grandma”; 92, of Mechanicsville, VA went to be with the Lord, Sunday, June 28, 2020. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Alton E. Talley; daughter, Judy K. Williams; her parents, T.H. and Beatrice Medlin; 5 brothers and 2 sisters.  Reba is survived by 3 children, Stuart W. Talley, Ginny T. Wilson (John), and Alton E. Talley, Jr.; 3 devoted grandchildren, Jene M. Wood (Keith), Denise A. Carr, and Justin L. Wilson; 4 special great-grandchildren, Andrew, Austin, Emily and Maegan; 3 brothers; 4 sisters; and many other family and friends. She was a long-time employee of Nabisco. She loved flowers and working in her garden. She was known as “Grandma” to everyone and all who knew her will remember her love of going barefoot. She would always greet you with a big smile, a hot meal, (or a Hanover tomato sandwich) and you always knew that you were welcomed there. Her gentle and loving manner will be greatly missed. The family offers a special thank you to Cathy Thornton, for her loving care and devotion she showed to her sister, especially in the last few weeks of her life. The family will receive friends, from 6 – 8 pm, Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at Monaghan Funeral Home, 7300 Creighton Pkwy., Mechanicsville, VA 23111 where a Memorial service will be held 11 am, Thursday, July 2, 2020 with a reception to follow in the funeral home lounge.
