Sending my sincere condolences to the family. I really liked and enjoyed the visits I had with Rena while we were still working at Western Electric/Lucent...and after retirement via phone conversations.. She was a sweetheart and I know she will be missed....I acknowledged through our retiree emails.. So all those that remain will know of her passing..

What a truly lovely person inside and out. Growing up across the street from her is one of the best memories from my childhood ,every one loved was so fun to go to her house weather it was helping her in the yard ,eating watermelon or mearly shucking peas with her and grandma Chisolm on on the front porch she made it fun.
