Goldie Grier Reeves

Goldie Grier Reeves, 70, of Greenville, passed away on Saturday, September 14, 2019.

Born in Oil City, PA, she was the daughter of the late Lambert Dwight & Sarah Davis Grier. Goldie was a beautiful petite lady with a quick wit, beautiful blue eyes and porcelain skin. She talked to everyone she saw and usually made them smile. Her intelligence allowed her a full academic scholarship to the University of Alabama where she graduated in with a degree in Microbiology. She went on to earn a BS in Sociology from Furman in 1978 and then a BFA in Interior Design from Converse College in 1985.

Goldie loved to design and create beautiful spaces and she spent many years as a successful interior designer. Later in life she found a love for gardening and helping others with her knowledge, love and talents. She was a colorful lady who was very generous and funny. Her greatest joy and accomplishments, she would have said, were her children. She would show pictures of her children to everyone she met.

Ms. Reeves is survived by her son, Christopher (Scot) Reeves, of Simpsonville; her daughter, Kelly Reeves Nichols, of Greer; and two grandsons, Henry Reeves Nichols and Lucas James Nichols.

The family will receive friends on October 15, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:30 PM at Heritage Funeral Home, Simpsonville.

    Condolences to my long ago student, Kelly, on the loss of your mother. I still have, hanging on a wall, the little crossstitch work she made for me of a student building a tower of pink blocks in our Montessori class many years ago. I remember her as a dear thoughtful and talented person. I know you and Scot grieve her loss. Much love, Donna (Gordon) Burton

  • Kelly,
    My thoughts and prayers have been with you in the loss of your mother.
    I am there for you anytime.
    Love you,
