Services for Marilynn B. Reavis, 68, will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen.
Ms. Reavis died May 26, 2018, in Harker Heights. She was born Oct. 21, 1949, in Fort Worth to LZ (Babe) and Marcia Reavis.
Ms. Reavis was raised in Benbrook, where she was a member of First Baptist Church of Benbrook. She was a graduate of North Side High School in Fort Worth, class of 1967. She served her country as a member of the U.S. Army and was stationed in Stuggart, Germany. Upon her honorable discharge, she had attained the rank of E5. She was proud to be a Texas veteran.
She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in social work in 1999 and then earned her Master of Science in social work from the University of Texas in Austin in 2005. One of her proudest achievements is that she never made a grade below an A in any course during her entire college career.
