Bridin Clare Reynolds, 44, passed away at home Saturday, April 5, 2014.

Bridin is the daughter of Michael P. Reynolds and Alice C. Casey, and was born Feb. 19, 1970. Bridin was a graduate of St. Ann School, A.I. du Pont High School, and attended American University and University of Maryland. She was a member of Alpha Chi Omega sorority.

She was a gifted writer and held the position of editor of the newspaper during her junior and senior years in high school. Bridin received the award of High School Journalist of the Year in 1988. She was also a news reporter for the Cape Gazette when she lived in Dewey Beach and worked for campaigns of many Democratic candidates. She wrote the book “Overheard from My Kitchen” about funny conversations between her and her twin boys.

Bridin was the owner of Riverview Treehouse Restaurant during the 1990s and was a caterer through the years after she sold the Treehouse. She enjoyed spending time at Dewey Beach.

Bridin was a devoted mother who treasured every day with “the boys.” She lighted the lives of so many friends and family with her sense of humor and love of life.

In addition to being survived by her parents, Michael and Alice, she leaves behind her beloved boys, Keegan and Nolan Hughes; her sisters, Mary Casey Reynolds, Megan A. Reynolds (and her partner Sarah Hill), and Kathleen M. Reynolds; her brother, Michael P. Reynolds Jr.; her nieces, Georgia and Rosalie; and many, many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Bridin was especially blessed by a beautiful friendship with her sorority sister, Siobhan Ridgway Gazur.
