The Rev. Elinor Carolyn Reynolds Bradley, 63, died unexpectedly May 10, 2010, at Millinocket [Maine] Regional Hospital. She was born March 27, 1947 in Chicago, the daughter of Ellsworth Clifford Reynolds and Elinor Carolyn Carlson, both of whom emigrated from Sweden. Carolyn was the pastor of First Congregational Church, Millionocket, beginning to pastor there in August of 2004. Lyn stated upon her arrival that it felt like home to her and that it was where she would be at the end of her earthly spiritual journey. From the beginning, she pastured First Congregational Church, assisted and supported by her husband. Working together, Milton and Lyn believed that participation of both of them in what God was doing and going to do in the Katahdin area was required of them. Lyn graduated from Carleton College, Northfield, Minn., and she received her Master of Divinity from Yale University, New Haven, Conn. She recently completed her Doctor of Ministry program at Bangor Theological Seminary and was excitedly looking forward to her May 21, 2010 graduation. In addition to her parents, Lyn was predeceased by her daughters, Erica Ash and Tiffany Hurihan. She is survived by her husband Milton T. Bradley; children, Jennifer Taylor and her husband John, and their children, John and William, Enoch Bradley, Elisha Bradley and his wife Valerie, and their children, Gidion and Ava, Faith Bradley and her children Ileena and Kiara, Elizabether Bradley, and Joshua Bradley, and Lyn’s sister, Jane Knees and her husband, Larry.
