Pauline P. Reynolds

June 27, 1945 — January 8, 2022

Brighton - Mrs. Pauline P. (Molloy) Reynolds, of Brighton, passed away on Saturday, January 8, 2022 in Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. She was 76 years old.

Pauline was born in Clifden, Co. Galway, Ireland on June 27, 1945, a daughter of the late Michael and Margaret (Connolly) Molloy. Raised in Ireland, she immigrated to the United States in 1961 and settled in Dorchester.

In 1964 she met the love of her life, Anthony Aidan Reynolds at Castle Island. They were married in April of 1967 and built a beautiful life in Brighton where they raised their two children. Their love was true; it was one that grew with each passing year and will last an eternity.

Her greatest treasure was her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Pauline loved her grandchildren with all of her heart. They were her true pride and joy. She was a treasured "Nana" and loved nothing more than spending time with them. She always had big hugs at the ready, cookies in the pantry, and unconditional love for them all.

She leaves her beloved husband of 54 years, Anthony A. "Aidan" Reynolds of Brighton, her son Brian Reynolds (Beth) of Ashland; her son-in-law, Tom Sheehan of Watertown; her grandchildren, Madeleine and Kate Reynolds, and Maggie and Aidan Sheehan; her siblings, Maureen Borden (Fred) of Brockton, Michael Molloy (Maisie) of Recess, Co. Galway, Ireland, Brigit St. Clair (Peter) of Florida, and Carmel Folan (Michael) of Cashel, Co. Galway, Ireland, and many nieces, nephews, and their families.

Awaiting her arrival in Heaven was her daughter, the late Tracy Sheehan and her brother, the late John Molloy.
