 Reyna, who for a period of time went by the name “Janie,” worked as a data processor for various companies such as CP&L, HEB and the Department of Corrections for Nueces County, while simultaneously devoting herself to her true dedication as a loving wife and mother. She graced family, friends and co-workers with her witty humor, beautiful laughter, easily shared friendship and love in abundance. Reyna’s hobbies included cooking for family & friends, shopping antique & boutique stores, becoming a skilled collector of purses and riding her adult tricycle throughout her neighborhood, waving its tall orange safety flag to all who spotted her, especially along Sunset Lake.

Houston Walker, Reyna Ryan (Nicholas), Anna Marie Walker, William Walker, Caleb Walker, Violet Ramon, Luke Ramon. Not to be excluded, her adopted cat, “Mister Handsome,” for no stray cat in her neighborhood went unfed.
