Charles Reynolds and Dot (Dorothy Overton) met just after he completed his four-year stint in the U.S. Navy, and they were married Aug. 23, 1963, by the Rev. Jimmy Blankenship in Austin. They moved to the Mildred area in 1972.
For many years, Charles owned and operated Corsicana Data Systems. After selling his business he worked several years at Medical Arts Clinic as the Information Systems director. Dot was an active Realtor for several years, and also spent 13 years as a tax deputy in the County Tax Office. They both retired in 2004.
Their children are Scott and Jo Reynolds and their three sons Cole Reynolds and Chris and J.R. Kyzer; Lori and Matt Hickey and their daughter Jordan and son Jason; and Kristy and James Smallwood and their boys Weston and Tyler. All three of their children graduated from Mildred High School.
Charles and Dot have been members of Mildred Baptist Church for 28 years, and they report “God has blessed us in many ways and seen them through his heart attack and her ovarian cancer, as well as other trials over the years. We are both doing fine now, and give all the credit to God for our health and this milestone to His awesome grace.”
They plan to take a cruise later in the year to celebrate.
