Huntsville, AL

Gerlene Ruth Tolomei, a beacon of unwavering faith and love, passed away peacefully at her residence in Huntsville, Alabama, on March 2, 2024, at the age of 87. Born on January 6, 1937, in Cullman, Alabama, to Leroy and Ruth Millican Reynolds, Gerlene grew to be a remarkable woman whose life was characterized by her devotion to her family, her church, and her community. Gerlene's journey through life was marked by her enduring strength and the joy she found in her family. She is lovingly remembered by her children, Leigh-Ann (Geoff) Dickson and Donald (Marilyn) Hogeland. Her legacy continues through her cherished grandchildren, Savannah Glenn Woodall, Keaton Wayne Leathers, Jacob Nunley, Bryan (Amanda) Hogeland, Christine (Roberto) Rossi, Ryan M. Dickson, and Renee M. (Richard) Brammer, as well as her adored great-grandchildren, Cedar Nunley, Hayden Nunley, Paris (Kirt) Black, Penelope Hogeland, Preston Hogeland, Raquel Brammer, and Rose Brammer. The recent arrival of her great-great-grandchild, Bennett Black, brought her immense joy. Gerlene's brother, Bobby Reynolds, fondly recalls the treasured moments they shared. Gerlene was preceded in death by her two loving husbands, Harold Glenn Hogeland and Domenico Tolomei. She was also greeted in the afterlife by her parents, brothers, Dwain and Ronnie Reynolds, and sisters, Dixie Thrower and Jeanette Graul. Each of these individuals played a significant role in the beautiful tapestry of her life. A faithful member of the Jehovah's Witness Church in Huntsville, Gerlene's deep-rooted beliefs were evident in every aspect of her life. Her faith-filled spirit shone brightly, not only within the walls of her church but also in the kindness and grace she extended to all who knew her. Gerlene's unwavering trust in her faith was a source of inspiration and comfort to her family and friends. Gerlene's life was one of purpose and passion. She embraced her roles with enthusiasm, whether she was sharing wisdom with her children, spoiling her grandchildren, or imparting love to her great-grandchildren. Her presence was a warm embrace, her laughter a familiar melody, and her guidance a steady hand to those she loved. In remembering Gerlene, we recall a woman of formidable character, a matriarch who stood as the heart of her family. Her life was a testament to the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit. She modeled for us all how to live a life filled with purpose, dignity, and grace. As we bid farewell to Gerlene Ruth Tolomei, we celebrate a life beautifully lived and a legacy that will continue to flourish in the hearts of those she touched. Her memory will be cherished, her lessons remembered, and her love felt, always and forever. Gerlene's life will be commemorated in a private ceremony, where family and friends will gather to honor her memory and the immeasurable impact she had on each of their lives. As we reflect on her remarkable journey, we take solace in the knowledge that her spirit lives on, guiding us with the same love and wisdom she shared so generously during her time on earth. Goodbye to a remarkable woman, whose life was a gift to us all. Gerlene Ruth Tolomei, you will be deeply missed, but your spirit will remain a guiding light in the lives of your beloved family. Rest in peace, dear Gerlene, until we meet again. To to the family or in memory of Gerlene Ruth (Reynolds) Tolomei, please
