Mary E. “Libby” Reams, 58, of Lafayette, passed away Sunday, August 2, 2020 at IU Arnett Hospital in Lafayette, Indiana. She was born January 31, 1962 in Columbia, South Carolina to Samuel & Barbara (Capilos) Reams. She graduated from Carmel High School and later from the University of Central Florida. She spent her career working for CNA Insurance and later as a nurse working with the Veterans Hospital.
Libby loved taking care of all of the veterans and found that to be her true calling. She enjoyed gardening, and was said to have the “greenest” thumb in her family. She was a vibrant, free-spirited wild-child. Libby was feisty, a warrior, incredibly vivacious, and truly a force to be reckoned with. She was “fierce” in her love for her children and grandchildren; was supportive to all she met and made instant friends. One of Libby’s friends said “she soaked up life, filled a room with joy, raised amazing kids and exploded with love for her grandkids”.
Libby is survived by her parents listed above; son: Zach (Brooke) Speckman; grandsons: Trent & Tristan Speckman; siblings; Debbie Reams, Jackie (Craig) DeVaney and Hunter Reams; nephews: Craig Jr, Kent and Jesse
Libby was preceded in death by her daughter Casey Speckman.
