Rennie lived next door to my Grandma Edna as a child and she and my Aunt Annie were great friends. Always talking over the fence between their homes. I became friends with Rennie through them... as did our entire family. We loved her as she was always so sweet and worked so hard! She will be so missed by all. Annie and Edna have passed as well and now they can all meet again in Paradise! ❤️❤️ Thoughts and prayers to Rennies family. 🙏🏻❤️

Aunt Rennie was such a special lady. She welcomed me into the family with open arms. I always enjoyed attending her Christmas Eve gatherings where she was such a wonderful hostess filling her house with delicious foods and interesting people. I’ll miss her signature mac’n’cheese and her warm smile. I’m so grateful that she was a part of our wedding by making the amazing wedding cake. You’ll be missed, Aunt Rennie!

Rennie was such an inspiration to me, as a Kops! I had the pleasure of sitting beside her at SRD and so appreciated her kindness and her love of life and family. Rest in peace, sweet friend.

“Rennie” was a special lady. She loved our TOPS group ,and was a devoted member for many years. She always had a smile; and was a great cook. If we had an event at TOPS she cooked enough food to share with all who attended! She will be greatly missed by myself and by all of us . Karen Thomas
