Loren Reynolds ’69 McCaleb
Loren Meredith McCaleb (Reynolds), age 74, of Fennville, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 12, 2021.
She was a graduate of Muskegon Heights High School in 1965 and received her BA from Hope College in 1969. Loren spent many years as a research librarian in Douglas, where her love of reading dovetailed with her dogged determination to answer any question laid in her path.
She was also an accomplished chef, baker, and flower arranger, and was depended upon by her husband and children for her crafty and artistic mastery of the knitting needle, the band aid and the kiss on the cheek.
Loren is survived by her high school sweetheart and husband of fifty years, Robert E. McCaleb; daughter, Megan (Greg) Walker; son, Robert C. McCaleb (Briana Glauvitz); four grandchildren, Marcus McCaleb, Calvin Walker, Olivia Walker, and Rowan Walker; sister, Frances (Rick) Steffen; brothers, David Starkey (Ari Sumargo) and Don (Sherry) Starkey; and their families; along with many lifelong friends. She was a gentle soul and will be greatly missed.
