Alice “Reggie” was born May 1, 1936 in Columbia, South Carolina to Lonnie Michael and Allison (Lovell) Brazel. She passed away August 9, 2020 in Coos Bay.

Reggie was a Southern Belle; always fancy and fashionable. She was an absolute classy lady and a true angel. Her sparkling personality shined both inside and out. She was known for her beautiful smile, kind heart and love for life. She had a smile that would light up a room with a personality to match. Anyone who ever met her was sure to never forget her.  She loved her family, friends and celebrating any occasion.

Reggie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Her family was always the most important thing in her life. There was nothing she wouldn’t do for them.

We have a beautiful angel watching over us. She will always be in our minds and forever in our hearts. Mother “Sunshine” was the light of our lives.
