Martha Louise Mack was born on December 20, 1952, at Mercer Hospital in Trenton, NJ, the daughter of Martha Lee (Williams) Mack and Will Mack. She had one son, Jonathan K. Mack, born on January 27, 1978. She married David Reynolds on October 19, 1991, in Lumberton, New Jersey at Lighthouse Tabernacle. She was predeceased in death by her mother, Martha Lee (Williams) Mack who died on July 29,1981; her sister, Mae Lizzie (Mack) Miller, who died on September 29, 2009; her brother, George Mack, who died in June 2011; her auntie, Mabel, who died January 12, 2012; and her sister, Idella Rae (Mack) Brown, who died on January 14, 2016.
She was educated in Trenton public schools and attended classes at Rider University.
She was employed at Prudential Insurance for 19 years (where she met her husband) and the Remax of New Jersey for 8 years.
She volunteered at the Love Life pregnancy crisis, Lancaster County Christian School (her grandkids’ school), Bordentown Women’s prison ministry, and she was the Coordinator of Missionary Global Communications at Cornerstone EFCA Church.
In her free time, she took road trips with her husband across the country and to Florida to see her family. She sat on the sidelines cheering on her favorite basketball coach, Jon Mack, at the University of Valley Forge, Southwestern Christian University, and Lancaster Bible College and her favorite athletes, Jalen and Justis, at their many soccer and basketball games. She was a big kid enjoying time with her grandkids (Jalen, Justis, and DJ) at Funplex, Chuck E Cheese, Sky Zone, Bounce Craze, and Go N Bananas. She regularly attended Cornerstone EFCA Church with her husband David. She spent intimate time with God in prayer and read her Bible daily, highlighting and making notes, sharing scripture and encouraging others, singing and worshipping Jesus all the time.
She had a mother who introduced her to Jesus, who prayed for her and was an example in studying the Word; she always said she was living on her mother’s prayers. She had people in the church as a young girl who supported and encouraged her and helped her raise her son. She never wavered in her faith, she knew her mission was to share the Gospel through her words and actions. She was passionate about speaking life and love into children, praying for them as they crossed her path. She was a light to many people and the ripple effect will be felt for generations to come. She had a heart for people and loved everyone unconditionally. May we all aspire to Love God and Love People like she did. She is now in heaven in the mansion God had prepared for her, singing and dancing with her mommy, sisters, and Jesus.
She is survived by her husband, David Reynolds Jr.; her son, Jonathan K. Mack; her daughter-in-law, Jennifer R. Mack; her stepsons, David Reynolds III and Kyle Reynolds; her grandchildren, Jalen K. Mack and Justis R. Mack; her step grandchild, DJ Reynolds; her nephews Will Mack, Anthony Miller, Laquia Mack, Larry London, Reverend Jeffrey Mack, and Lorenzo Mack; her stepsister Dorothy Day; and her stepbrothers Billy Mack and Son Mack and his wife, Grace Mack; and her cousin Joe Watts.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s Handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:8-10
“Listen, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6: 4-9.
