Dr. Reeves moved to the Raleigh area in 1922. She became one of the first female students to get a degree from North Carolina State University; she received a B.S. in Physics at the age of 26. She was united in marriage to Sgt. Jack Reeves Apr. 14, 1934. He was awarded a Bronze Star in WW2 and died in the line of duty in 1951 in the Battle of Bloody Ridge. They had no children. In 1948, Dr. Reeves became a researcher at NCSU, becoming an integral figure in the Physics department and furthering much of the university’s knowledge of foreign substances. She led the university’s push to observe negative energy. In 1957, she received her PhD in Physics from NCSU. Dr. Reeves continued her work at NCSU until her death.

A memorial service will be held August 2nd at the First United Methodist Church in Cary.
