I had the privilege of meeting Rene through my friend, Ruth Jaeger. Rene and I corresponded through the mail. She was a wonderful person to know!

I will certainly miss my beloved aunt - she was an inspiration to me during my whole life as a model of a loving Christian. She cared for others her whole life -- was cheerful and helpful to all and a joy to be around. Have fun in heaven, Aunt Lorene!!

God truly got an angel. Lorene has been a part of my life since I can remember. I grew up going to church with her and her family and being in Rebekahs. Her friendship and love will be missed. My deepest sympathies to the family.
