Obituary

BARRE-Sharon A. Reynolds,73, of Barre,MA passed away suddenly at home on February 9, 2021 due to complications from a recent surgery. 

She was born in Fitchburg, MA on May12, 1947, the daughter of Helen F.  (Moline) Reynolds and Herbert G. Reynolds. At the age of 11, she moved to Leominster, where she spent her teenage and college years, and most of her adult life.  She attended mainly Catholic grammar schools and St, Bernard’s High School, graduating in1965.
     
She had a fun and carefree childhood, especially the summers at her camp on Lower Naukeag Lake in Ashburnham. Somewhat of a tomboy, she loved fishing, catching turtles, lighting fireworks, picking blueberries
with her grandmother, and cavorting off on the various adventures concocted by her free spirit grandfather, both of whom had always, to her delight, lived with her.   She became best buddies with her mother who she lovingly cared for until her passing in 2012.  Another best buddy was her father, affectionately called Herbie, an avid and
accomplished photographer, who made her his most frequent subject.
    
While in high school, she had somehow developed an affinity for the French language, and after graduation she entered Anna Maria College in Paxton, majoring in her new passion.  She received her Bachelor’s in 1969 and then attended Assumption College in Worcester, receiving her Masters in French in 1971. Around this time, she spent a few weeks in Paris honing her skills to insure she developed a genuine French accent.  She then spent two years at Boston College, completing the course work for her Doctorate.  However, she never quite crossed the goal line by completing her thesis.
    
She then commenced her teaching career, spending two years at The Applewild School in Fitchburg, following that with five years at Westford Academy.  Then in 1980, she began what would be a thirty-one year career teaching French at Fitchburg High School. She made  many close friends along the way, and retired in 2011.
    
Somewhere along the line, she developed another affinity, this one being for miniature donkeys.  In 1995, she acquired her first and all-time favorite, her beloved Vinnie, seen in the accompanying photo.  In 1998, she purchased property in Barre and developed Hidden Acres Farm, where she spent twenty-three years breeding and raising her beloved miniature donkeys.  Having become a rabid Patriot’s fan, two of them were naturally named Brady and Giselle.  Along the way, she supplied many satisfied customers with these remarkably friendly creatures.
     
She is survived by her longtime companion, Robert Denomme of Leominster, her brother Richard Reynolds and wife Beatrice of Winchendon, sister-in-law Faith Reynolds, niece Ashley Reynolds and nephew Geoffrey Reynolds, all of San Diego, CA, as well as several grandnieces and one grandnephew of that area.  She was predeceased by her parents, grandparents Cynthia M. And Frank Y. Moline, and brother George Reynolds of San Diego.
     
There will be no services at this time.  Later in the Spring, a Mass will be held at St. Leo’s in Leominster, followed by burial at St. Bernard’s Cemetery in Fitchburg. In lieu of any other gestures, donations should be made to an animal sanctuary of your choice. Arrangements are under the care Pillsbury Funeral Home 96 S.Barre Rd. Barre.

You were a very cool lady up there in Barre with your donkeys doing things your way. I wish we had gotten to know each other better. Rest well, knowing that those two people closest to you will take care of things just the way you would have wanted.

So sorry and sad to hear of Sharron’s passing. We go way back in sharing our love for mini donkeys. We purchased a few of her donkeys. Sharron, was a wonderful , kind and loving person. She enjoyed living on her farm with her herd of donkeys. We will miss hearing from her and our long phone conversations. Sorry for Bob, her love of life and the whole family. May she Rest In Peace with our Lord Jesus. Need help call 860-663-2510.
