Sincere Sympathy to Taylor and Palmateer Family. Looking at all the pictures was a walk through Memory Lane. I had my first motorcycle ride with Elton! Reney loved her family and they surely loved her! Reney faced her share of challenges and did it with a smile-an example for all of us. May she now rest in God's peace and may warm memories sustain all of you.

My prayers for strength and acceptance have been offered up. It's nearly impossible to think of Reney without a smile on her face and putting a smile on your face. She was just one of those out-going persons from an out-going family who always made you happy. She will be missed. P.S. to Sandy - I love you.

So sad to hear of Reney’s passing. We walked to school together every day in grade school and lived in the nearby neighborhood. Good memories of our times together.

Mark, Sandy, Bill and Mike,
We will miss seeing Reney on our visits to town. So many fun years at Hackett’s from the 70s until the mid 80s. Lunches together, bowling, happy hours and working together. Reney and Elton were a great couple. We were blessed to know them. I hope your memories carry you through this time.

Reney always had a smile on her face whenever I saw her and was fun to be around. I can remember going to Canada one evening and the man at customs asked her to open the trunk and she told him it was broken. He asked what are you going to do if you get a flat tired? She told him she'd call her sister. He just shook his head but he let us go into Canada.
