Renee died peacefully at her home in Kamloops at the age of 58 years. She was a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and friend. While we are sad for our loss we are thankful for our time with her and for her guidance and her love. Renee was a teacher who loved her students and her work. In retirement she used her amazing talent with colors to create, and then give, beautiful quilts.
Predeceased by her mother Grace she is survived by her husband Rex, children Nicole, Jim and Peter, granddaughter Julia, father Jack, sisters Jean Marie and Susanne, brothers John and Steven and so many friends.
Renee was born in Oliver and raised in Osoyoos. After attending SFU she moved to Kamloops in 1978 and started her teaching career. Her summers were spent on Shuswap Lake gardening, entertaining and raising her family. Renee loved the beauty and warmth of Hawaii and in retirement enjoyed winters living at her home in Kailua-Kona. The Aloha Spirit was natural to her and she leaves many Hawaiian friends.
A Celebration of her life will be held on July 8, 2012 at R & R Resort, Scotch Creek.
