They were blessed with 14 wonderful years of marriage. Re’Nae worked as a bartender for several establishments in Wisconsin Rapids. She loved to hop in the car and head out on the road and enjoy the outdoors. Re’Nae could be found watching the critters outside her window, whom she would give special treats. Her cat Franky was more family then pet. Re’Nae was a diehard Green Bay Packer fan, whom stuck with them win or lose.

She treated everyone as if they were part of her family. Re’Nae was a family-oriented person, who cherished the times she spent with her children and grandchildren.  The zoo was a memorable spot for everyone. She was accomplished at horse shoes, darts, and pool.
