So many good memories of you, Renee! You made me laugh and scream and think and fight for what was right. Thank you for all you did to help me grow as a human being, and thank you for showing the world how awesome a strong woman can be.

I worked with Renee for 22 years, and we continued to meet for dinner monthly as part of the Secret Pal Club. Even after her years of retirement, she was still a font of information and advise regarding the mortgage industry. When I was at Inland-Irwin, Renee was my go to person when researching client issues. She would patiently walk me through the process as it pertained to each issue. Her humor and kindness will be missed. Her passing has left a big hole in my life. I will miss you, Renee.

I was proud to have worked with Renee during the Inland -Irwin Mortgage days.
So many of us have great memories of Renee and all shared with us. She was a walking, talking dictionary when it came to the mortgage industry. I'm glad she was able to retire, as many of us have. She was so proud of her nieces and nephews. Cherish all of the memories. I regret that I won't be able to attend the service as I'm out of town. Prayers to all of you. Connie Dixon

With deepest condolences. Renee was one of my mentors when I started my career at Irwin in 2000. I have often thought of her over the years as I continued to encounter new challenges in the mortgage business. She always wore a smile and was patient with me.
