She was born on May 8, 1941 in Hazelwood, North Carolina to Zeb and Nannie Bell Woody.
In January of 1947, when she was six years old, Reba and her brother Jake and their dad and mom moved to Beaver, Washington, where she attended elementary and junior high school. The family moved to Philomath in 1958, where she briefly attended Philomath High School her senior year. She moved back to Forks and graduated from Forks High School in 1959.
After graduation she moved to Philomath, where she met and married Eldon Lee Hines on October 24, 1959 in Philomath, and they remained happily together for 33 years until Eldon’s death.
She married Emmett Treichel on May 16, 1998 in Reno, Nevada and they resided in Forks until his death, whereby she moved to Monroe, Oregon.
